Among the health professions, occupational therapists are poised to be highly impactful allies for families, workers and employers. They are trained to help people achieve the highest potential possible by playing to their unique strengths as they relate to specific environments and desired activities. Occupational therapy is the newest and fastest-growing department at Manakai o Malama. A heightened level of awareness both in the workplace and among other health professionals will bear much fruit for all parties as it enhances health outcomes, quality of life, productivity and job satisfaction.
OTs are trained to "assist clients (people, organizations, and populations) to engage in everyday activities or occupations that they want and need to do in a manner that supports health and participation," according to the American Occupational Therapy Association.

QUESTION: What enforcement authority does the Hawaii Disability Rights Center have?
ANSWER: Our core function is to monitor the facilities that exist for people with disabilities and the treatment provided to individuals with disabilities. We have advocates who routinely go to the Hawaii State Hospital and monitor the facility. We don’t have to announce that we are coming. We go there, and our advocates look around to make sure that no one is being mistreated.
That Florida woman's canceled Blue Cross policy? It's junk insurance.
She can get a real plan for only $165 a month
By now you’ve probably heard horror stories about how the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare, has forced so many people to lose their insurance policies. You’ve heard that affordable health insurance policies are being canceled and replaced with policies that are far more expensive than the canceled policies. But have you heard that across the country, insurance regulators are cracking down on the private insurance companies, because of the scam they are running on their customers? Probably not.
