Hometown Hero Dr. John Janikowski

Hometown Hero Week 24 Winner - Dr. John Janikowski

Congratulations to our Hometown Hero week 24 winner, Dr. John Janikowski! Dr. Janikowski serves the community of Lana’i not only as a medical professional but as a resident. As a practicing physician he goes above and beyond for his patients, even providing home visits for kupuna and those with special needs. He has volunteered for all the COVID-19 testing and COVID-19 vaccine clinics on the island of Lana’i because he considers it an essential service for the health of the community.

Thank you Dr. Janikowski for the dedication you have shown to our community. Through your selfless acts of giving we are reminded of the importance of compassion for others and that true aloha spirit lives on in Maui County, even through the toughest times. You are a real life hero and we are forever grateful.
