Thank you for joining us!

Guest Speaker

Today’s Guest Speaker, Jim Becker from the Rotary Club of Hilo, discussed the Global Telemedicine Project and the Rotary Global Grant. Approximately 22 hospitals in their Telemedicine network provided a Starter Kit that has basic equipment such as a laptop, webcam, and 1 year Zoom Pro account. They also include a KUBI which is an iPad that is positioned on a tower that rotates that the Doctors can use to teleconference about their patients. The Doctors can also set the KUBI next to a patient and check in on them remotely. The KUBI is manufactured in the US but they try to source the iPad and other items locally. The Global Telemedicine team visited Nepal last year to deliver the Starter Kit and KUBI to a rural hospital. While there they also trained the local IT staff so they could set up the KUBIs. Jim also shared beautiful pictures of his fly over of Mt. Everest and other areas that they had the opportunity to go to during the visit.

Happy Dollars

Art Tanguchi - ($5) Contributed to ask what we could do to support the Veteran's home at this time. Rotarians in Action ensued. Doug Adams responded that a card campaign would be the easier to do and he will get information from the home to help support this. If we opt to do more, Virginia and Bob Juettner, Mary Begier, and Miyuki Lee are willing to be on a committee to determine what kinds of projects would be appropriate.
Sharon Scheele - ($5) Happy Mika is attending Imiloa Educational Program and is loving it.
Bob ad Virginia Juettner - ($10) Happy they want to recognize the builder of their 1938 home and it's subsequent owners as they make renovations to their home, most recently a bathroom.
Miyuki Lee - ($10) Happy. $5 for the Rotarians that have visited her kiosk at the Kinoole Farmer's Market on Saturday's and $5 for setting up a washlet in her bathroom.
Jim Becker - ($20) Happy he found fountain pens and were able to fill them with ink and they worked.
Mary Begier - ($20) Happy, She wants to acknowledge fellow Rotarian John Gapp and his company, Dream Pipe Plumbing for the service he provided in a home that he is hoping to close on time. Mary stated that she should have gone with John Gap to begin with!
Tim Hansen - ($21) Happy for 21 years of marriage and had a 3-day breathtaking hike in the southern portion of the Big Island.
