Guam - Project Karinu, Public Health's early childhood system of care initiative, kicked-off its strategic planning summit this morning. The project's goal is to develop a system of care that early childhood health and provides family-centered support services. 

Neal Horen, deputy director of early childhood policy at Georgetown University, was one of today's speakers.  He said the purpose of the forum is "just making sure the family drives how things work and that it's not about what departments or agencies want to have happen but about making sure the families get what they need and it's easy to get to. We've already had a lot of systems work done here on island - it's just the next sort of extension of all that good work."

The summit will conclude tomorrow at the Hilton Resort in Tumon.
