Spotlighting Health and History

The Prospect Primary School Dental Therapist Alice Naimool-Loraine (L) at work with students.

This week (Monday, 5 January), GIS Spotlight brushes up on dental health, salutes some stellar nurses and highlights an historic spiritual site.

First up, the team visits with the Health Services Authority and discovers that going to the dentist is easier than you may think. The HSA offers a wide range of services in the main clinic in George Town, as well as in schools and district clinics. Find out how you and your family can benefit.

Next up, we stop by the Cayman Islands Hospital to meet this year's winner and runner-up of the Eloise Reed Award for Nursing Excellence, and find out what it takes to become an award-winning nurse. Plus, you'll hear how the winners plan to share their prize with the community as a whole!

And the 'Cayman Quiz' returns as GIS Spotlight teams up with the Cayman Islands National Trust to explore our country's past. This week we go back in time to one of the oldest religious sites in Grand Cayman. Here's a hint to the quiz answer: the site was set up by accident. Put on your thinking cap and get ready to be put to the test.

Produced by Government Information Services (GIS), GIS Spotlight is a weekly programme that highlights services and solutions available from government, about issues that concern and affect you.

The programme will air on Monday, 5 January at 6:30 p.m. on Cayman27. Comments and suggestions about GIS Spotlight are always welcome. Viewers can provide feedback by e-mailing Producer/Host Heather Hopson, at heather.hopson@gov.ky.
