The Get Healthy Guam Coalition is a community-based collaborative organization dedicated to Raising Awareness and Motivating People to Actively Engage in Healthy Lifestyles.
Our current focus is on developing health prevention/health literacy materials.
The Get Healthy Guam Coalition exists to raise awareness, educate young people, and motivate communities to live healthy, engaging lifestyles. By spreading messages of hope and health, today’s students can spark positive change within their families and local communities.

Student led Storytelling to Teach Communities the Power of Prevention
Our organization has proudly participated in various preventive health-related projects. In our latest endeavor, we’ve partnered with Children for Health (CfH) to create compelling posters & storybooks about community-specific health and wellness topics for students ages 9 to 14.
The poster on prevention of Type 2 Diabetes has just been completed.
The storybooks will:
Be written by students in collaboration with teachers and topic experts;
Be Illustrated by CfH’s in-house artist;
Be strategically designed using the participatory inquiry method to spark curiosity;
Create a depth of understanding;
Mobilize youth to become agents of change in their communities
The storybooks will have a primary story for older students and teachers, a lighter story for youth to share with younger children, and additional hands-on activities for further growth and exploration.
We invite you to become a Partner in Prevention. We’d love to connect with you. We believe that, together, we can make a remarkable impact in our community.
