Getting a view into Hawai‘i’s current state of health may be a little easier thanks to a new website from the State Department of Health.

The Hawaii Health Data Warehouse is a collection of information gathered from surveys conducted year round.  Today the DOH released a new interactive query tool called the “Indicator-Based Information System” or “IBIS”.  Ginny Pressler is the Director of the Department of Health.  She says the new platform puts Hawaii’s health data at the public’s fingertips.

The site serves as an online clearing-house – providing data and statistics about everything from births, to how healthy a particular community is.  Searches can be broken down by island, district, or gender and data can be easily graphed and exported for personal use.  Rajani Starr is an Epidemiologist with the Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Division of the Department of Health.

Nick Yee’s passion for music developed at an early age, as he collected jazz and rock records pulled from dusty locations while growing up in both Southern California and Honolulu. In college he started DJing around Honolulu, playing Jazz and Bossa Nova sets at various lounges and clubs under the name dj mr.nick. He started to incorporate Downtempo, House and Breaks into his sets as his popularity grew, eventually getting DJ residences at different Chinatown locations. To this day, he is a fixture in the Honolulu underground club scene, where his live sets are famous for being able to link musical and cultural boundaries, starting mellow and building the audience into a frenzy while steering free of mainstream clichés.
