Our Story

Everything started in 1979…sort of.

The Hawaii Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology was formed as a non-profit by former residents William Fong, Irwin Lee and John Uohara (Kapiolani Class of 1979). HSOG will raise funds to provide educational and financial assistance to medical students, residents, and post-graduate physicians who may be interested in exploring opportunities in under-served areas.
‘A’ohe lokomaika ‘i i nele i ke pana’i
(No kind deed has ever lacked its reward)
Hawaiian proverb

To create a platform of awareness of the needs of women in remote and under served areas of the State.

We will focus on being patient centered and culturally sensitive which will result in exceptional outcomes.

We will create standards of care for clinical practice for the State of Hawaii through evidence-based knowledge.

We will create an advocacy for quality comprehensive Women’s Health Care for the State of Hawaii.
