Puni Ke Ola: Drug Prevention in Rural Hawaiian Communities

Susana Helm, Kanoe Davis

Puni Ke Ola is a community-academic partnership that is working to develop, demonstrate efficacy, and disseminate a Native Hawaiian model of drug prevention with a focus on `opio (adolescents and young adults).  Hawaiian epistemology, ontology, and cosmology frame concepts of wellness and prevention embedded in our research and practice, which have been explored through participatory action research.
