In collaboration with Kapi'olani Women and Children's Medical Center in Honolulu, three times a month, the Foundation sponsors visiting specialists on Maui: a High Risk Breast Cancer Specialists, Terri Imada ARNP and Mineko Kaisho ARNP, and a Gynecological Oncologist, Dr. Michael Carney, meet with patients one-on-one. These specialties are not available on Maui, so we bring the doctor to the patient, rather than the patient incurring additional expenses traveling off-island.
HIGH RISK BREAST PROGRAM
This comprehensive program, serviced by Terri Imada, ARNP, and Mineko Kaisho, ARNP, from Kapi'olani Breast Center, provides services for the prevention and early detection of breast cancer in women who are at an increased risk due to their family history or previous pre-cancer diagnosis. The program encompasses radiological services, physician and nursing services, nutritional counseling, patient education, psychological and support services.
