Atalina's purpose in sitting on the board is to lead efforts in protecting the quality of life of community members as well as providing opportunities to increase their quality of life through health programs, interventions and all needed avenues to provide necessary resources for members of the Ko'olauloa region and all of Hawaii. She strongly believes that there are countless needs in our community, but no organization or foundation willing to take on the challenge of finding health solutions tailored specifically for our community with cultural competence, cultural awareness, cultural sensitivity, and cultural safety. She feels we live in a very unique community with an already established strong sense of unity and we need people from within the community, who know firsthand our specific needs and will be the voice of the community members. Atalina will humbly serve this community and all of Hawaii in doing what's best for it's people.
