Art contest raises awareness about latex allergens

KALIA KAPISI, Art contest winner

The 2017 Maui County Latex Allergy Awareness Student Art Contest winner is Kalia Kapisi, a senior at Maui High School. This year’s theme is “Beyond the Gloves: What you need to know about Latex Allergy.” Kapisi’s entry is a watercolor of a lung — one side is healthy while latex allergens are taking over the other side of the lung.
