“After discussing the donation with the University of Pittsburgh International President, the Guam Healthcare and Hospital Development Foundation Board decided, that in keeping with our goal of supporting the School of Nursing, UPMC should send the $18,000 donation directly to UOG rather than to the Foundation,” said Sgro.

“All of us at the School of Nursing and Health Sciences want to extend our sincerest thanks to the Guam Healthcare and Hospital Development Foundation for facilitating this donation,” said Kathy Wood, Acting Director, UOG School of Nursing.
