Native Hawaiian and Pregnant?

Calling the entire CTAHR ʻohana! Your kōkua is needed to “spread the word” and recruit Native Hawaiian mothers for a new study.

The Dept. of Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences will observe the diet and health of Native Hawaiian mothers and infants, from birth throughout their first year of life.

Women may qualify if they are:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Native Hawaiian
  • an Oʻahu resident
  • currently pregnant or have given birth within the last 4 weeks
  • comfortable using a mobile app to take pictures of the foods that she and her baby have eaten over the course of a year
  • able to regularly meet with the research team for a total of 5 virtual visits over the course of a year.

Participants will receive a $10 gift card at enrollment, as well as diapers and wipes at each subsequent visit. For more information, call (808) 375-3785 or email fprch@ucera.org.

“Mahalo for your help!” says Jessie Kai. “I am happy to share more of our research to give CTAHR a clearer picture of our work.”

The project is being supported by a grant from the NIH’s National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD).
