One of the most meaningful moments in JABSOM’s Convocation Ceremony is when our new MDs receive maile lei from their loved ones, often a parent, grandparent, spouse or even a child. The announcer reads a personal message of thanks from the student to their loved ones, as the student and lei presenter embrace at the center of the stage. Sometimes there are tears of joy. Enjoy these images of the lei presentation and congratulations by UH officials, taken by photographer Arnold Kameda. Mahalo and imua to JABSOM’s class and their loved ones who helped them get through medical school!
