Welcome Message from Dr. Joy


If this is your first time in Hawaii, then you’re in for a lifetime of memories from this Paradise.  I was born in England, but have lived in Hawaii over 30 years ago, so this is my USA home! The Hawaiian people are exotic and friendly, much like its tropical weather, providing an ‘aesthetic’ cultural buffet.


Our Conference location is in Waikiki, on Oahu, the 3rd largest and most populace island, with the State Capital, Honolulu.  Located on the south shore of Honolulu, Waikiki was once a playground for Hawaiian royalty. Known in Hawaiian as "spouting waters," Today, Waikiki is Oahu’s main hotel and resort area and a vibrant gathering place for visitors from around the world.
Waikiki has been showcased in countless legendary films and TV shows (like Hawaii Five-0, Magnum PI) and is famous for its beaches. Also, enjoy family-friendly attractions like the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium. Among the various things to do, high-end boutiques, shops, and restaurants can be found all along Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues and at places like the Royal Hawaiian Center, the Waikiki Beach Walk and the International Market Place. After the Waikiki sunset, the fun continues with amazing nightlife, HULA shows, and live music everywhere!

Best of all, Waikiki is within a half hour of a variety of other Oahu attractions, like Diamond Head Crater (for you hiking enthusiasts), Pearl Harbor, Iolani Palace, the Nuuanu Pali Lookout and Hanauma Bay (for you snorkelers). Other notable points of interest nearby include the Ala Moana Center (Hawaii’s largest outdoor shopping center) and Chinatown.
From Hawaiian royalty to Regional Cuisine, Waikiki continues to be an evolving expression of Aloha.


Lastly, if you have extra time, there are other islands you can visit, also, like: The Big Island (Hawaii) known for its active Kilauea volcano, Maui (known for its lush valleys and waterfalls), Lanai (Pineapple haven) and Kauai (The Garden Isle) with exotic flowers everywhere. Hawaii is truly ‘Heaven on Earth’”.

So, again, I say “E Komo Mai” (Welcome) and ALOHA!!!!
