Faculty from the Hawai'i School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Hawaii came together to raise awareness and money for children living in poverty. On Thursday, May 26, 2016, the school’s faculty members joined millions around the globe to participate in “Red Nose Day,” a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc.
Last year, funds raised benefited children in all 50 states and 15 countries through the support of programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy, and educated. “Red Nose Day” has raised over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years.

It was not always the plan of Hawaii School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University graduate Dr. Keith Pedro to enter the health field. In fact, Pedro initially wanted to be an interior designer, but after being introduced to the field of public health through a mentor, Pedro knew that he had to reroute his plans, and he did just that.
Pedro, who received his Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology degree, believes that attending the Hawaii School of Professional Psychology was one of the best choices he made in his academic career. "My experience has been the best with Argosy University, Hawai'i," states Pedro. "I was able to choose the field I was interested in and receive full circle preparation."
Along with great preparation, Pedro's experience while attending Argosy University, Hawai'i was heightened by encouraging faculty. "The faculty at Argosy University, Hawai'i were so supportive and they allowed me to learn from my mistakes," Pedro says. Learning from his errors early on in his education helped Pedro ease through the transition from school to the professional world of psychology, where there is no room for any mistakes.
Dr. Pedro is employed as a forensic coordinator with the Department of Adult Mental Health, State of Hawai'i where he takes great pride in his work. He has taken his passion for what he does outside of his job by volunteering his efforts to help create a community titled "Hale Imua" (meaning "moving forward" in Hawai'ian) for mentally ill patients who are reentering the community on conditional release. Pedro did not mind taking a big role in this project. "Because the patients we work with have been committed of a crime, I help to monitor their risk factors within the community and make recommendations to treatment teams," he explains. Pedro believes that building a community like Hale Imua was necessary so that patients can receive the proper guidance they need to reenter the community.
Dr. Pedro is a firm believer in lending a helping hand and giving back to others who need assistance. Currently he teaches at both Hawai'i Pacific University and Kapiolani Community College. He also serves as a board member on the Hawai'i Psychological Association and the Committee for Diversity. His goals include serving mentally ill populations in underserved communities.
Dr. Pedro encourages others to lend a helping hand whenever possible. "If it wasn't for the help of the people who helped shaped me, I wouldn't be where I am today."
