Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, a major nonprofit health plan serving more than 226,494 members, has been bringing health education into communities through music, comedy and drama since the early 1980s. Offered to audiences free of charge, Educational Theatre Program is a key component of Kaiser Permanente’s Community Benefit outreach. Our work is driven by our conviction that good health is a fundamental right shared by all and by our heritage of prevention and health promotion.
Our programs are developed by theatre professionals in collaboration with health educators, community advisory committees and Kaiser Permanente physicians. We cover important health topics, such as healthy eating, physical activity, diversity, peer pressure, conflict management, bullying prevention, domestic violence, dealing with grief and loss, depression, sexually transmitted diseases, literacy promotion, and drug, alcohol and tobacco abuse.
