Tagiilima Iatala, MBBS

Fuata Tagiilima I'atala served the children of American Samoa in both the ER and the pediatric clinic from 1993 until his passing.  He graduated as a general practitioner from the Medical Faculty of Papua New Guinea many moons ago but over the years gravitated toward working mostly with children.  He was an esteemed leader in his village and also served several terms as a Senator in the American Samoan Fono (Territorial legislature). Dr. Iatala is missed by the many children, families, and colleagues whose lives he touched through the years.
