TakeCare Insurance Donates $100K to GCC

Students in the Allied Health program at the Guam Community College will benefit from more scholarships, state-of-the-art equipment and supplies thanks to a donation from TakeCare. 

Guam – As part of an ongoing partnership, TakeCare presented GCC a check of $100-thousand dollars to go towards the college’s Practical Nursing and Medical Assisting programs.

President of TakeCare Jeffrey Larsen says this contribution is part of TakeCare’s mission to improve the overall health and wellness of the community by educating future leaders. 

For the past seven years, TakeCare has contributed to the GCC Allied Health program, funding scholarships for both students and faculty, and funding the purchase of state-of-the-art technology such as patient simulator manikins.

GCC Allied Health Department Chairperson Dorothy-Lou Manglona says along with upgrading their medical equipment and replenishing training supplies, this year’s donation will provide $1,000 dollar scholarships to ten students.

GCC President Mary Okada says the donations over the years have helped the Allied Health programs flourish noting Medical Assisting is one of GCC’s top-enrolled associate degree programs and that Practical Nursing is one of the top three certificate programs.
