The Waianae Journey application represents the history of the Health Center, the history of Hawaiian medicine, culture, and community in Waianae Hawaii.
Each path is filled with petroglyphs, plants, and other landmarks that represent the link between the past and future, which is the journey through our healthcare home.
This version features an interactive map that allows campus visitors to learn about the petroglyphs and other landmarks they see along the walking trails.
The story pages provide video and other historical information and are linked throughout the map.
Kauila Clark, the current board president of the National Association of Community Health Centers, narrates the landmarks and stories of this journey.
The welcome video message features Agnes Kalanihookaha Cope ("Aunty Aggie"), founder of the Waianae Coast Cultural Arts Society (WCCAS), past chair of the state wide Native Hawaiian Health Care System, and recently honored by Governor Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii who declared April 8, 2011 as “Agnes Kalanihookaha Cope Day in Hawaii."
This is a 40th anniversary special edition version containing information regarding the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center's 40th anniversary celebration, including new landmarks for the map which represent information kiosks newly built to house many of the historical information and new upcoming projects.
A new kiosk represented in the app is the Best Practices kiosk. Information about the Best Practices as well as role the Health Center will be made available during our 40th anniversary celebration happening at the end of this month. Visitors will be encouraged to download the app and walk the trails to prepare for a game requiring them to have visited several of the landmarks in the app to be able to answer questions correctly.
Another new kiosk added to the map is the medicinal kiosk. This kiosk will house information on the medicinal values of Native Hawaiian plants grown right on our main campus. Although not quite ready, the medicinal kiosk website will provide the latest information on medicinal plants and the app will provide a direct link to it.
Ratings and Reviews
The app explains the trails symbols and plants - please expand for our next visit
Last year my wife and I toured the grounds of Waianae community health center and were impressed by the surrounding environment and trails. The app explains the symbolism and meaning behind the carvings, plants, and the fish that we came across. We were told that the app will expand to include more definitions...hope so and hope to revisit the health center again soon!
What an awesome app!
This is an awesome app for the community and visitors of the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center! The videos are super good...I love the one with Aunty Aggie who gives a warm welcome with Aloha to all the visitors. The map is super useful when trying to navigate around the large campus...PLUS it gives you descriptions in text and audio as you journey through the walking trails!
