A local non-profit organization wants to assure the community that they can still help residents meet their primary health needs, especially their children’s, for free.
Co-founded in 2015 by former senator Dennis Rodriguez Jr. and his wife, Lena, the Todu Guam Foundation aims to provide preventative healthcare to uninsured and underinsured children and families.
With the anticipation of face-to-face school instruction approaching next month, Rodriguez stressed the importance of having health screenings and getting proper medical treatment for the island’s children as soon as possible.
“That’s something I’ve been thinking about. During this pandemic, when kids are not in school, a lot of them still are not getting the physical check-ups and the immunizations and that’s a priority we think should be undertaken because aside from COVID, there are other illnesses and other diseases out there that we have to protect people from, especially our kids from,” Rodriguez said.
Even during PCOR1, Rodriguez says that the organization was and is still helping families get in touch with medical professionals so they can get the healthcare they need.
