University of Hawaii at Manoa
2018 Progress Report
Committed to meet 23 guidelines—developed by PHA in collaboration with some of the nation’s leading nutrition, physical activity and campus wellness experts—around nutrition, physical activity, and programming on campus.
“As we wrap up our first year with our Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) commitment, we at the University of Hawaii-Manoa celebrate our accomplishments in making our campus a healthier place to learn, work and live. We have submitted 10 of our physical activity/nutrition commitments on our campus including our Biki bike partnership. Biki is a bicycle ride share program that has established multiple bike stations on our campus for students to utilize at a low cost for transportation throughout the community.
"We are also proud to announce the establishment of a UH Manoa Wellness Council, which includes students, faculty and staff from multiple campus departments as well as community members from the Hawaii State Department of Health, American Cancer Society, and the Blue Zones Project. The Wellness Council was created to implement two important campus projects, the PHA-Healthier Campus Initiative and the American Cancer Society Tobacco Free Generation Campus Initiative. As we continue our partnership, we look forward to our next campus project, creating a designated walking path with distance markers. Our plan is to work on this project throughout the summer, and showcase the new pathway during a PHA Healthier Campus Week fun run/walk event.”
