Lions, Rotary clubs team up for better health in Rockford

Working together, the Rockford Lions and Rockford Rotary clubs teamed up for their second annual free health screening on Saturday, March 27 to serve the clients of the North Kent Service Center.

Jill Erickson, RN, screens for blood pressure problems as part of the Rockford Lions and Rotary clubs’ annual free health screening event.

The Rockford Reformed Church once again provided the venue for this screening of hearing, vision, blood pressure, podiatry, dental and pharmaceutical. Volunteering their services beside club members were Dr. Michael Kelley, podiatrist, and Dr. David Fischer and Dr. Brian Wilson, dentists. Blood pressure screening was in the hands of RN Jill Erickson.

The Rockford Lions Sightmobile housed the vision and hearing screening conducted under the direction of Dr. Chad Jackson, optometrist, and Dr. Karen Jacobs, audiologist. Available for use throughout Western Michigan, the Sightmobile is maintained by the Rockford Lions for the use of fellow clubs and area communities.

Both the Rockford Lions and Rockford Rotary clubs exist to serve their communities and the needs of others. It is only through the generosity of neighbors supporting the clubs’ fundraisers that they are able to provide services such as this health screening—and they thank you.
