Resident Dr. Sia on front cover of Pediatric NewsWe're honored to announce that 15 Craigside Resident Dr. Calvin Sia achieved the front cover of Pediatric News Magazine for his lifelong commitment to pediatric medicine for 50 years!
A lifelong child advocate, Dr. Sia has been the president of the Hawaii Medical Association, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics (Hawaii Chapter), chief of staff at the Kauikeolani Children's Hospital in Honolulu (now the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children), chair of the American Medical Association Pediatric Delegation, and founder of the AMA's Section Council on Pediatrics.
Dr. Sia recognized Autism in the 1960s before anyone knew much about the condition and became involved with learning disabilities. He also launched "Healthy Start," one of the nation's first home-visit programs for at-risks kids and worked to extend aid to children with family and developmental challenges.
Dr. Sia continues to promote the medical home concept in Asia, and remains hopeful for the future generation of physicians.
Congratulations, Dr. Sia, on an illustrious career spanning over a half-century, and for your continued support of our world's children.
Resident Rear Adm. "Joe" Vasey featured in Honolulu Star AdvertiserArcadia's very own Rear Admiral Lloyd R. "Joe" Vasey made the front page of the Honolulu Star Advertiser as he celebrates his 100th birthday and champions for the construction of a Pacific War Memorial at Pearl Harbor.
Adm. Vasey served in WWII and continued on to have an accomplished career in the military. He founded the Pacific Forum, a foreign policy think tank with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Nowadays, besides writing op-eds on military strategies for outlets like the Wall Street Journal and the Christian Science Monitor, Adm. Vasey's main focus is working to recognize the over 150,000 Americans who lost their lives in the Pacific War.
Adm. Vasey has the assurance of U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa in working to introduce legislation to Congress authorizing the design and build of the Pacific War Memorial. This important addition would help those who lost their lives get the recognition they deserve.
We would like to thank Adm. Vasey for his many years of service and his steadfast work to honor those who have served. Happy 100th birthday, Adm. Vasey, and many happy returns!
