Maui Wildfire Exposure Study

A University of Hawaii and Community Partnership to Assess and Enhance Health and Well-being in the Wake of the Maui Wildfires
The Maui Wildfire Exposure Cohort Study (MauiWES) is an extensive effort to understand and mitigate the health and social impacts of the Maui wildfires. By participating in this study, individuals can learn about their personal exposure risks to the aftermath of the wildfires, while also contributing valuable data that aids in community resilience during the recovery phase. This initiative is a collaboration involving the University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization, the John A. Burns School of Medicine, and various community and health organizations, is aimed at filling a significant knowledge gap regarding the effects of environmental hazards and socioeconomic challenges on health in the aftermath of wildfires. 

MauiWES is focused on gathering data and biospecimens from over 1000 residents affected by the wildfires to provide crucial insights into the short- and long-term health outcomes. These include chronic diseases, mental health issues, and broader social implications. The study’s comprehensive approach addresses the urgent need for information on how wildfires influence health and social well-being, emphasizing the importance of community participation in understanding and combating these impacts.
