Shriner's Medical Team Will Make Semi-Annual Trip To Guam
Pacific News Center Staff Reporter 17
Guam - A medical team from the Shriners Hospital for Children in Hawaii will be on Guam next month to provide free clinical services to children who have special orthopedic care needs. The service will run from Jan. 7 to 10 at the Mangilao clinic of the Department of Public Health and Social Services.
Since patients will be seen by appointment only, they can call Arlean Kloppenburg at 735-7117.
Kloppenburg said there are currently around 400 families on Guam with children who are in need of such care. She is urging them to take advantage of the team's visit next month, noting that when the Shriner medical team was on the island back in June, only 23 families showed up.
