Barnes has questions for health board

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Senator Tina Muna Barnes' office today released a list of concerns regarding the Guam Board of Allied Health Examiners. The senator, who is currently in Taiwan, raised a number of concerns she's hoping will be addressed during this afternoon's oversight hearing.

At the top of the list is a resolution passed by the board, which bans the use of audio or recording devices during the board meetings. Muna Barnes also claims written requests for proof of education from board members have been gone unanswered. In addition, the Democrat policymaker claims members of the board have met with its legal counsel to discuss charges against a licensed member.

The senator questions whether this is a standard practice. Another concern she outlines is the lack of transparency in the minutes taken during the boards meetings and she questions whether the board has investigated complaints against veterinarians other than Dr. Joel Joseph.
