This presentation will provide a brief sociohistorical overview of Native Hawaiians and detail their social and cultural determinants of health. Dr. Kaholokula will review several empirical studies that elucidate the adverse effects of racism on hypertension risk and other related conditions, including psychophysiological processes.
He will discuss the pathways by which racism leads to the development of chronic diseases among Native Hawaiians and present preliminary findings on an intervention that is culturally grounded in hula, the traditional dance of Hawai’i, to improve hypertension management.
Dr. Kaholokula’s presentation will illustrate the importance of culturally grounded interventions for improving clinical and sociocultural outcomes among Indigenous peoples.
