The Hawaii Chapter of the Alpha Omega Alpha (AΩA) Medical Honor Society recognized Jennifer Katada, MD (Associate Program Director, Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Internal Medicine Residency Program), as an Honorary Alumni Inductee on May 13 at a banquet at the University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine.
The AΩA Honor Society honors top students from each graduating medical school class, and recognizes contributions in educational achievement, gifted teaching, the development of leaders, humanism, and service. Each year, the Hawaii chapter selects from house staff, faculty, and alumni to name honorary AΩA members.
Dr. Katada was selected by this year’s AΩA students as their Honorary Alumni Inductee. “I was honored to be chosen for this recognition,” said Dr. Katada. “It aligns with my personal and professional goals, such as lifelong learning in the pursuit of clinical excellence and teaching. I aspire to be a role model for medical students and help them achieve their goals.”
