UH, military to partner on health, environmental issues

The University of Hawaii and the U.S. Pacific Command have agreed to work together in the areas of health care, alternative energy, water and waste management.

University President M.R.C. Greenwood and Pacific Command Commander Adm. Robert F. Willard are due to sign an agreement at a ceremony on Tuesday.

The Pacific Command says the deal is a result of a January conference on enhancing security throughout the Asia-Pacific.

The institutions plan to send nursing students on military humanitarian missions to countries in the Asia-Pacific region. They also plan to expand an internship program at Pacific Command headquarters that gives students first-hand experience working on strategic security initiatives.
