The Healthcare Association of Hawaii (HAH) and the Hawaii-Pacific Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) jointly sponsored a gubernatorial candidate forum on August 25, 2010. The event featured former Congressman Neil Abercrombie and former Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann. Lt. Governor James "Duke" Aiona was invited but declined to participate.

Members of HAH and ACHE were invited to the event which was held at the Manoa Grand Ballroom of the Japanese Cultural Center. The forum was designed to afford members of HAH and ACHE an opportunity to find out how the candidates stand on healthcare issues.  Each candidate gave an overview of their views on healthcare, then responded to five questions that were provided in advance. The questions addressed such issues as strengthening Hawaii's healthcare infrastructure, developing public/private partnerships and generating adequate funding for Medicaid. The candidates also responded to questions from the audience.
