Surgical Training For Our Global Family

Caring for the patient helps one patient, training the surgeon helps thousands of patients.

2021 Annual Report

Ohana One is excited to release our annual report, representing a snapshot of 2021’s progress, results, and outcomes. This report and all our critical surgical training would not have been possible without you, our incredible and dedicated supporters.

Operating Together for a Better World

Ohane One’s executive director, Marchelle Sellers, and our newest board member, Sharon Oreck, just delivered ten donated pairs of VUZIX M400 smart glasses loaded with TeleVu remote software to the Meest-International shipping center where a proud Ukrainian volunteer will hand-deliver this technology to surgeons in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine. From there, the technology will be shared with hospitals in Lviv and Kyiv and offer pivotal assistance to their surgeons as they navigate care for those wounded in the war zone of Eastern Ukraine.

A Look Into Our World

Ohana One is pioneering the use of smart glasses to close the surgical education gap, but our team is not satisfied with offering just this one innovative program. We have seen the impact technology can have on longterm remote surgical training, and we are actively pursuing new uses for emerging technology.  As we head in to 2022 and beyond Ohana One continues to innovate and looks to further disrupt surgical training. We are excited to share with you this sneak peak of what we are working on!
