Guam Memorial opens medical library

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Two decades in the making and two generous grants from the Robert Wood Foundation have made a medical library on Guam a reality. The grants were awarded to the Ayuda Foundation to establish these libraries in hospitals in the U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands.

The library, located on the 4th floor of the Guam Memorial Hospital, includes comprehensive and updated text and electronic resources for clinical providers, patients and members of the community.

Ayuda Foundation president Carlotta Leon Guerrero said, "We feel that medical libraries is [sic] one of the tools that helps our healthcare workers so they don't feel so isolated. So Robert Wood Foundation made this possible. They want to put a footprint out here in the Pacific."  

The Pacific Islands Health Officers Association and Arlene Cohen and Alice Hadley also helped to make the opening of the GMH Medical Library possible.
