The Hawai’i Injured Workers Association (HIWA) sponsored a educational workshop on April 30th.


Guest speakers included; physiatrist Linda J. Rowan, M.D., who discussed medical issues that occur in work comp cases, attorney Douglas Moore, Esq., who did a fantastic job of discussing legal issues related to work comp cases and a special mahalo to former KITV anchorman, journalist, and injured worker, Dick Allgire.



We'd like to thank all those that so selflessly donated time and funds to make this all possible. Mahalo Dr. Rowan, Doug Moore, Dick Allgire without whom this video would not be possible. Also, mahalo to Laurie Hamano and Anne Noto who both worked tirelessly to make this event a success. And mahalo to Norman Kaui at HawaiiBusinessOnline for helping to get the word out.
