The Get Fit Program is a 10-week healthy lifestyle challenge. It encourages participants to gather their friends, co-workers and family to form teams of 4 to 10 people, then take the challenge to make effective, positive lifestyle changes. Program elements include: access to fitness classes, activities and team prizes, personalized goals, resources like food, recipes and activity trackers, and free health screenings by RNs and student pharmacists. Pharmacy and nursing students worked under the guidance of faculty to perform blood pressure and BMI screenings as well as counseling of patients on ways to improve their overall health. Over the course of two and half months, patients were expected to follow counseling advice based on personal goals they set to improve their health. Many pharmacy students were able to pick a patient to follow. At follow-up events, patients came back and were reassessed to see how much their weight, BMI, blood pressure, and overall health and happiness has improved.

There was also healthy living demonstrations with instructors who demonstrated various exercise techniques and routines. Informational booths were set up all around the fair to share information about healthy living lifestyles. This included smoking cessation, healthy diets, sexual health, cancer and many more. The younger family members were not forgotten. There was a healthy living art competition for local school children and a children's compounding booth.

Immeasurable Community members were educated on breast cancer facts and the importance of early detection.

BRIEFLY explain project and include any data gathered: (pints of blood, money raised, people screened, size of audience, etc.)

The Hui Malama Ola Na 'Oiwi, E' Ola Kakou celebrated breast cancer survivors and their o'hana in a fun filled, educational event with activities for all members of the family. While the event looked to honor the past, the breast cancer survivors, one of its main priorities was the future. Many of the booths at Hui Malama were set up with the aim of increasing the awareness in the local community about breast cancer. That is why the Gamma Theta chapter was asked by UH Hilo CoP faculty, Dr. Forrest Batz, to create an interactive booth with models and information boards to contribute to the event. The Gamma Theta chapter's booth featured informational poster boards that presented recent data and various facts on breast cancer. Along with the poster boards were a interactive quizzes that helped gauge the communities current knowledge on breast cancer and a step by step guide to self breast exams. Also on display was Brother Lindsey Takara's "Candy Lumps", which are hand-packaged breast cancer candy demonstration bags with assorted candy. Each candy was carefully selected for size that was respective to average breast lumps sizes found depending on different detection methods and frequency of examination. The candy bags allowed for an interactive demonstration of lump sizes and assisted in educating people on the importance of early detection. The booth was able to reach out to over 75 people in the community that came out to the event.

50 children Children around the world received Christmas cheer through practical and fun gifts that were donated and put together by our brothers.

BRIEFLY explain project and include any data gathered: (pints of blood, money raised, people screened, size of audience, etc.)

Every holiday, the Samaritan's Purse organization sponsors the Operation Christmas Child Event. The event provides people with the opportunity to create and send a box of gifts to a needy child for Christmas. A participant takes a shoebox and fills it with various school, fun and practical gifts and a photograph, letter and/or return address for a child. That way, the child can know who their special package came from and how to thank them if they wish. The participant gets to select whether the package is for a boy or a girl and what age group it is for. Once dropped off at specified locations, the packages could be sent out to anywhere in the world or even back in the home state of Hawaii. Gamma Theta chapter worked with Big Island Toyota to make these deliveries possible. They generously provided us 33 plastic boxes to be filled and packaged. And they also covered the shipping for the boxes, which are typically around $7 per box. Pledges were also allowed to participate in this event with the actives. They had to make the extra effort and provide their own shoebox along with the $7 shipping donation. Many of them worked in groups to create the packages and share in the shipping costs. Altogether, with the contributions of the actives and pledges, there were over 50 packages dropped off and shipped out to needy children around the world.

This was a career day presentation for the 6th, 7th, 8th graders at Kalanianaole School. We went to show them what it is a pharmacist does, what kinds of pharmacists there are, and what schooling is required to get into pharmacy school. There were a total of three presentations given (same presentation three times), each to a group of about 10-15 kids plus their teachers. This was an interactive presentation using Prezzi. Each type of pharmacy was discussed using real world pictures and props (compounding pharmacy brought hand made capsules, lollipops, suppositories, etc‌). Kids were asked questions about what was presented, and given candy for participating. Volunteers spent 10-15 minutes answering questions after the presentation.
