Students, faculty, and staff at the University of Hawaiʻi–West Oʻahu can learn how to make positive changes in their lives during E Ola Pono, a week of health and wellness activities starting April 12 and lasting through April 16.

The PIKO Project at UH West Oʻahu will be hosting this week of wellbeing dedicated towards the promotion of a balanced and harmonious lifestyle. The focus on health and wellness also includes aspects of health dealing with emotional, mental, spiritual, physical, environmental, intellectual, social, and/or financial wellbeing.

Organizers are hosting activities in hopes of giving students the time and place to participate in healthy lifestyle engagement.
