Support for those affected by Maui wildfires

Following the devastating wildfires on Maui and Hawaiʻi Island and an outpouring of the desire to help, the Hawaii Medical Association (HMA) has published a Maui Support page that is being regularly updated as news, additional resources and donation opportunities become available. Please consider supporting HMA as they mobilize volunteers and supplies. The road to recovery will be long.
