The GAA Medical Club is excited to begin another successful year of medical outreach and experience with the medical workforce. Guam Adventist Academy's Medical Club allows students to have the opportunity to observe and learn from medical professionals and to reach the community with the club's medical screenings. The Medical Club has a total number of fourteen members with Mrs. Carmen Kasperbauer as the club's advisor. They meet every other Friday of each month in Room 111 during lunch.
Members of the Medical Club undergo training provided by medical staff from the SDA clinic. This training, which takes about one to two days to complete, involves learning how to take blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart rate readings.
The Medical Club is known for its health screenings, which are held either at local malls or school events. Each screening allows the members to have hands-on experience in measuring one’s blood sugar and heart rate. The Medical Club also goes on field trips to local hospitals, healthcare centers, and other locations that show members what each medical profession is all about and how each medical field works. This school year, the Medical Club plans on having more medical screenings, field trips, and possibly a donation drive for healthcare centers that are in need of supplies.
GAA's Medical Club invites all students from grades 7-12 to join to learn all about various opportunities in the medical field and the different aspects of each health profession.
