Guam - Among the other bills signed into law at Adelup this morning included Bill 434. The measure would authorize the creation of several key positions within Public Health's community health centers, namely a chief executive officer, chief financial officer and medical director. According to DPHSS Linda Denorcey the positions fulfill federal requirements.

"Specifically we had 19 really crucial program requirements that the federal government expects us to follow and all health centers throughout the united states have to adhere to the program expectations and so this was one of them this is the last one that needs to clear everything else we cleared everything so we're very happy to say that the two community health centers are just as great as the other health centers in the United States," he said.

The positions will be funded through federal grants and program income.
