The Meeting


A much-anticipated meeting was held today between the nurses from the various hospitals on Savaii with some Peace Corps Volunteers who are assisting me in diabetes/hypertension screenings. Each Volunteer described their background, some in Samoan, and their participation with the screenings. The nurses were impressed. The meeting opened the door for further participation for Peace Corps involvement in assisting the National Health Service at the village level.
