Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero has appointed Dr. Nathaniel Berg as the new chair of the Physicians Advisory Group, succeeding Dr. Hoa Nguyen who resigned last week over policy differences with the chief executive.
Berg is a board-certified radiologist with three decades of experience. He is the Medical Director and CEO for Guam Radiology Consultants and serves as Chairman of the Guam Board of Medical Examiners.
“Throughout this pandemic, the Physicians Advisory Group has provided valuable medical advice to me and my Covid-19 team," the governor said.
"I appreciate each member’s work and dedication to our community. In my consideration for chair, I have asked Dr. Berg to take up the mantle. He is a respected medical professional and an active contributor to the group’s important work. I trust his expertise and look forward to his leadership.”
Berg accepted the chairmanship. “I want to thank Governor Leon Guerrero and the PAG membership for their confidence in me. We remain committed to providing guidance to you and your team, especially as the decisions to protect our island’s public health and safety become more and more difficult. I am up to the task, and we will fight this battle united.”
