Angela Pratt gives back to JABSOM
Our HMA President-Elect Dr. Angela Pratt is from Kauaʻi and is a graduate of Kamehameha Schools, and the University of Puget Sound in addition to JABSOM. Before medicine, she studied business and pre-med. She also worked for Hawaiian Airlines and was Miss Honolulu and the runner up both to Miss Hawaiʻi and Mrs. Hawaiʻi in each of those pageants. She is the First Native Hawaiian and First woman Department Chair at Kapiʻolani Medical Center. She is also a supporter of the American Heart Association, the Hawaiʻi Food Bank, the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Children’s Miracle Network.
On May 9, 2017, physicians and staff at the University of Hawaii Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health gathered to celebrate the “Angela Pratt Endownment”. The Endowment is a gift by Dr Pratt to 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.
