********************Wolfeboro Lions Club is Sponsoring Health Screenings at St. Katharine Drexel Parish May 18th**********************************

The Wolfeboro Lions Club is partnering with Patty Walker, Registered Dietician and Certified Diabetes Educator, to conduct health screenings for blood sugar and eye disorders.

The screenings will take place at St. Katharine Drexel Parish on Tuesday, May 14th from 9 AM to 12:30 PM.

Diabetes is an epidemic in the United States, almost doubling in incidence over the past 20 years. In addition, an estimated 83 million American adults (1 in 3) have pre-diabetes, a condition that increases your risk for developing Type 2 diabetes, yet 90% don’t know they have it. If caught early enough, most persons can reverse this condition with simple lifestyle changes. The Lions Club International has a strategic objective to reduce the prevalence of diabetes and improve quality of life for those identified.  The results are not meant to make a diagnosis, but instead guide you to further steps if needed.  The optimum time  to get tested are fasting or 2 hours after any food or beverage.  Knowledge is power.  Please consider having this finger stick test done to identify your risk.

 There is no charge for this service or the eye screening. You can opt for one or both.

The eye screening process employs the Spot Vision Screener by Welch-Allyn, rated up to 90% accurate, which takes an instant scan of your eyes to determine the possible presence of various eye disorders. No physical contact is made, there are no eye drops necessary and the entire process takes a matter of seconds.

The information obtained is to be considered a preliminary procedure only and does not constitute a complete diagnosis. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the individual to arrange a full eye exam with an eye-care professional.

All are welcome. We look forward to your participation.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness. Wolfeboro Lions assist with glasses, hearing aids, eye surgery, etc.


Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide. Wolfeboro Lions hosts the only Leo Club in the state at this time: Kingswood Regional High School Leos.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
