ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY is proud of alumna and board trustee Kim Uehisa ’15. While home for the holidays in December 2022, she was invited on HPR’s The Conversation to talk about her future plans in the medical field and how she wants to give back to the islands. Listen to her interview here, or find it at The Conversation on Spotify (starts at 27:30). Kudos, Kim! From HPR: Kimberly Uehisa is thanking her lucky stars for landing in Honolulu before fierce winter storms hit on the mainland. The Culver City resident was back in town celebrating Island Pacific Academy’s “Home for the Holidays” alumni event earlier this month. The 2015 graduate and board of trustees member just completed her master’s degree and is applying for medical school. She spoke with HPR about returning to Oʻahu to improve access to health care and address health disparities. Uehisa recently won $10,000 to develop a digital, avatar-based, health-education tool building on her early-stage research. The seed funding will go toward developing a fun app that Uehisa plans to use with future patients. This interview aired on The Conversation on Dec. 28, 2022. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1
