OB-GYN: Alumna and Kapʻiolani Chief of OB-GYN Dr. Angela Pratt gives back to JABSOM through an endowment
Physicians and staff of the University of Hawaiʻi Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Women’s Health (OB-GYN) gathered on May 9, 2017 to celebrate the “Angela Pratt Endowment,” a gift created by Chief OB-GYN at Kapiʻolani Medical Center for Women and Children (KMCWC), Dr. Angela Pratt. This generous contribution by Dr. Pratt, an alumna of the ʻImi Hoʻōla Post-Baccalaureate Program and the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) MD Program (1996), will help support the development of OB-GYN resident training on neighbor islands, research in Native Hawaiian Women’s Health and professional development of faculty, residents and fellows.
