Hip Hop Public Health’s goal is to achieve health equity using an innovative array of culturally-tailored media tools designed to improve health literacy. Their mission is to foster positive health behavior change through the transformative power of hip-hop music. Their vision is that youth around the globe are empowered with the knowledge and skills to make healthier choices, reducing preventable health conditions and the rising tide of childhood obesity.

Daeufer lecture event flyer

The Carl and Alice Daeufer Education Lecture Series is supported by generous gifts from the late College of Education (COE) Emeritus Professor Dr. Carl J. Daeufer and his late wife, Alice Daeufer. Alice and Carl established an endowed fund, which offers annual scholarships and this education lecture series because they wanted to “give something back” to the COE and the University of Hawai‘i. To date, the Daeufer Family College of Education Endowed Fund has provided 44 scholarships and sponsored 17 distinguished scholars and public figures to give public lectures at the university.
