Health Officials Seek Your Input During Health Fair This Weekend


Guam – The impact of the military buildup on the island’s public health and social service agencies is often over-looked and that’s why Public Health Officials are urging residents to turn out for a Health and Social Service Fair this weekend.

Public Health Director Pete Roberto called on residents to stop by booths that will be set up at the Agana Shopping Center on Saturday. And at the Micronesian Mall on Sunday.

Roberto wants your input on what Guam needs to improve its Health and social service programs. And your responses will be included into the 5 year Strategic Plan that will guide the growth of health care and social services on island in the years ahead.

Roberto says they expect to finalize the strategic health plan by December. He could not put an exact price tag on the cost of the additional services that will be needed. But he said it will probably run into the tens of millions.
