Max Yarawamai moved from Ulithi Atoll in Yap, Micronesia to attend high school in Hawai’i in 1974. Since moving, Max has lived in Hawai’i, and currently resides on the Big Island. He is co-owner of Resort Management Group – a landscape construction and maintenance company. Despite not returning to his native Ulithi to live, Max has always tried to support the Micronesian community by helping his family and people in any way he can. Max sees Oceania Community Health as a way to a larger impact in helping the health of the region. In his traveling with the Polynesian Voyaging Society, Max understands that many Pacific communities are facing health and cultural challenges and hopes that Oceania Community Health will be able to work throughout the Pacific. Max is most proud of his family, his wife and two daughters.
