Guam - Hoping to get the conversation started about health issues on our island, Committee on Health and Human Services chairman Senator Dennis Rodriguez Jr. will be launching the "You Have Questions That Need Answers. Let's Talk." series of conversations with medical professionals this weekend.

The first series will focus on living with auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, back pain, tendinitis, gout, lupus and Type I diabetes. The keynote speaker will be visiting rheumatologist Dr. Evan Vista from St. Luke's Medical Center in the Philippines, along with guest speakers certified nutritionist Dr. Keith Horinouchi and obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Thomas Shieh. A panel of physicians will also be on hand to answer questions.

The forum is free to the public and takes place Saturday, October 27 from 9am-3pm at the Marriott Resort and Spa.
