   Through the recent struggles over a national health care system, in fact, for the past 42 years, a health clinic in Kalihi has been working diligently to provide care that works for their particular neighborhood.  HPR’sNoeTanigawa found an incredible variety of services are organically integrated in the daily work at K?kuaKalihi Valley.

K?kua Kalihi Valley has eight locations providing services that range from dental and medical care to a neighborhood bike program.    We will take a look at the Ho'oulu 'Aina Farm program and Roots Cafe in the next installment.
