KIA Member News

A presentation was made at the KIA Generation Membership Meeting (30th Anniversary Event) by KIA member Servco Pacific Inc. last August. They are now excited to announce that, Hui Car Share will be launching in Honolulu this summer. Kakaako residents and businesses can enjoy all the benefits of driving a car without the cost or burden of owning one. Hui Car Share is powered by Toyota Connected and Servco Pacific. Vehicles will be affordable and easily accessible throughout Kakaako and the surrounding area for short-term usage providing another sustainable transportation option. A member of the Hui team will be at April's KIA networking event to share more information about Hui.

KIA is pleased to share the new data showing how the UH John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) ranks in education:



“Both the number of students who choose primary care specialties and the number who remain or return to treat patients in Hawaiʻi after completing their training are critical to stemming the growing shortage of physicians in our state,” said Dr. Jerris Hedges, JABSOM Dean.
