There was a five year study, recently shared at an American Heart Association meeting, showing that hula can help lower blood pressure, can help heart health. Some research was done on the Big Island with Kumu Pi’ilani Ka’awaloa from Kamehameha Schools and health worker Stacey Haumea working with Big Island participants. Dr. Todd Seto, cardiologist at Queen’s Medical Center, talks about the study. PLUS, host Sherry Bracken talks with Randy Kurohara and Toby Taniguchi of Community First, a local health initiative that’s sponsoring blood pressure check drives in February and March.
