Hafa Adai Everyone,
In April, the local Guam Chapter of ACHE is planning an educational event hosted by Sarah Smith: a presentation on the issues in reproductive health care with respect to Chuukese women and the affect of transnationalism in Guam and Chuuk. This event was originally planned in March, and there have been some challenges holding the schedule due to various events; however, it looks like we will be able to overcome the obstacles and we will have the opportunity to host this event.
Guam is also looking forward to participating in the currently planned Annual Hawai‘i Chapter breakfast presentation and educational opportunity by ACHE Immediate Past Chairman, Ms Christine Candio, RN, FACHE. This presentation will occur the morning of July 13, Guam time and will provide a valuable educational opportunity for us.
As we round the corner of the first quarter, we are looking forward to the opportunity of a fresh new year of service and building educational opportunities, membership, and advancement for the chapter.
