As the Chairman of the Guam Legislature’s Committee on Health and Human Services, Senator Rodriguez is pleased with the District Court’s decision to end the federal watch of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse and the Department of Integrated Services for Individuals with Disabilities.
Yesterday, Senator Rodriguez addressed a gathering of the American College of Health Executives Guam Chapter on the state of community healthcare on island. The meeting was held at the Fiesta Resort and was attended by health executives from both the private and public sectors of the community. Senator Rodriguez spoke on major issues such as Obamacare, TEFRA reimbursments for GMH, the medical peer review process and so much more.
Senator Rodriguez stated, "There is a growing epidemic of increasing rates of obesity and unhealthy weight gain that are contributing to the rise of chronic diseases, poor health, a reduced quality of life, and the ever increasing higher costs for health care for our island. Every little thing that we can do to make our community healthier is worth it."
