Guam - A medical team from the Shriners Hospital for Children in Hawaii will be back on island next month to provide free consultative services. The group will provide services for children up to the age of 18 with orthopedic conditions, burns, and spinal cord injuries. 

Public Health says patients will be seen by appointment only and new patients are encouraged to obtain a referral and medical summary. Those children with deformities such as disease and injuries involving the bones, joints and muscles should be referred for evaluation to the orthopedic physicians through public health. 

The outreach clinic will be held from January 5-7 and from the 11th-13th.  For appointments please contact Arlene Kloppenburg at 735-7117.
