A celebration of mothers and the importance of their well-being will take place at the “Mom-O-Rama” event on Sunday, Aug. 16.

The free event family event will take place at the HMSA Center in Hilo, located within the Waiakea Center on Makaala Street, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

A series of speakers will provide information regarding the overall health of moms. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn finance and budgeting tips from Central Pacific Bank, learn how to reduce stress with Cheryl Jackson of Parents, Inc., and learn about healthy food with Jana Ortiz-Misiaszek of the Blue Zones Project Hawai’i.

“Last year’s ‘Mom-O-Rama’ event series was a big hit and we’re so happy to bring this event back to the Hilo community,” said Nicole Okamura, chief executive mom, Moms In Hawai’i. “Our goal is to connect moms with one another and provide them valuable information so they can take charge of their overall well-being. That will in turn help them take care of their families.”

Interested mothers can also join the “Moms in Hawai’i” supportive online and offline community that gathers mothers in the Hilo community and connects them with each other.

“Juggling all the responsibilities that come with being a mom is hard work,” said Elisa Yadao, HMSA’s senior vice president of consumer experience. “And when you’re so busy taking care of others, it’s easy to put your own health on hold. We want to help moms refocus on their own health, learn how other moms are doing it, and share their own experiences and expertise.”

Light pupus, games, giveaways, and other activities are also on the agenda.

Interested participants are encouraged to register online on the MomsInHawaii.com Facebook event page.
