'Stay at Home' Dilemma

HPR’s Ashley Mizuo has been looking at Covid and the homeless. She shares stories behind the numbers following arrests made by Honolulu police when the 'stay at home' orders first went into effect months ago. How do these rules affect those who do not have homes?

Advanced Healthcare Directives

It's important to plan your healthcare decisions as well as financial and legal matters at the end of life, especially during this time of pandemic.  The University of Hawaii Elder Law Program at the William S. Richardson School of Law teaches students about elder law, and provides legal services to seniors and their caregivers.
