Hawaii-Pacific Chapter of ACHE Active in Guam
MAJ Aristotle Vaseliades

     In early 2009 Mr. Lee Saltzberg started the initiative to begin Guam's first ACHE Chapter. With all the proposed healthcare changes in the near future proposed for Guam, he felt it was important to get the various healthcare leaders together to share ideas and consult on new initiatives. Lee contacted the Hawaii-Pacific Chapter for assistance in establishing the Guam Local Program Council. The Hawaii-Pacific Chapter quickly agreed to help in this initiative, and has lent support and mentoring over the past year to help Guam's Local Program Chapter (GLPC) get on its feet. In February 2010 the GLPC held board officer elections where LtCol Kara Gormont was named President, and Mr. Albert Gurusamy was named Vice President. Quickly afterward the Guam LPC bylaws were written. Mr. Francis Santos was named the Treasurer and Capt Cathleen Connolly joined as the Secretary. Current GLPC membership represents more than 50 personnel from 32 organizations on Guam. The Council was successful in hosting its first educational event in March, bringing International SOS to brief on the new TRICARE changes the island will see in 2010. There are many plans for more Chapter events in the near future. For information on activities planned by the GLPC please contact LtCol Kara Gormont at or call (671) 366-3230.
