Kahului, Maui, HI – April 3, 2012 – The Hawaii Permanente Medical Group, which provides care to all Kaiser Permanente members in Hawaii, today announced a $3,000 donation to Maui’s Bone Marrow Donor Registry raised from its annual community golf tournament held last year at the Honolulu Country Club.
“Maui’s bone marrow donor registry creates opportunities for increasing the odds of saving lives,” said Dr. George Talbot, Kaiser Permanente’s physician-in-charge for Maui. “We are pleased to support an organization that plays such an important role in the health and well-being of our community.”
