HONOLULU — Catherine Marquette was honored in ceremonies in both the House and Senate at the Hawaii State Capitol in Honolulu on April 4.

A family nurse practitioner from Hamakua-Kohala Health, she is one of five Hawaii Healthcare Heroes in the state chosen by the Healthcare Association of Hawaii.

“If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t be alive today,” said nominator Rae Therrien of Laupahoehoe, who credits Marquette for finding a rare type of cancer thanks to genetic testing and diligence.
