Guam - Speaker Judi Won Pat left for Palau this week to attend the Annual Association of Pacific Island Legislators General Assembly Meeting. Won Pat is the Association's vice-president. She says the main topic of discussion will focus on the health of pacific islanders, as she says the World Health Organization has deemed the region to have the biggest people in the nation.
Won Pat says the three day event hopes to find ways to provide better healthcare service to islands in the Pacific that lack advance medical care. "The ones that would really help us is telecommunications, you know that our doctors have been talking about telemedicine and so were going to bring some of these people to talk about the infrastructure and we hope to be able to get some information and have these guys come to Guam and connect with Guam," she said.
Won Pat adds there will also be presentations from environmental professionals from Hawaii who will discuss clean water and trash removal solutions.
