Rooted In Health & Wellness
The Utah Pacific Islander Health Coalition (UPIHC) seeks to improve quality of life for Pacific Islanders and the communities they live in throughout the state of Utah through health promoting efforts including public health education, preventive wellness services, and health policy advocacy.
We provide education through a robust network of coalition member organizations ranging from individual health advocates and independent fitness consultants to government agencies and institutions of higher learning.
The 2022 Our Health and Our Safety is Our Legacy campaign was launched at the end of last year to ring in the new year. As we are still facing the Covid-19 pandemic, our Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander community in Utah is greatly impacted by it (2.3 times more likely to be hospitalized). Which is why it is important that we have adequate access and information to health resources.
