The District 204 Lion’s Club hosted its annual health fair at the Mount Carmel Diocese’s Daidai Social Hall last Saturday, and assisted over 200 members of the public.
According to the Lion’s Club District 204 governor Arturu Navarro, those who went to the health fair got free eye screenings and a pair of free reading lasses, free blood sugar screenings, free blood pressure screenings, and free immunization shots.
All the services were free of charge, thanks to the generosity of Lion’s Club sponsors and partners.
The public was also given the opportunity to learn more about cardiopulmonary resuscitation through the Department of Public Health.
The Commonwealth Cancer Association was also present to offer cancer awareness tips and share what steps can be taken to prevent cancer or obtain treatment.
The Northern Marianas College Cooperative Research and Extension Education Services also educated the public about the risks of diabetes and how it can be prevented.
The Lion’s Club is a non-profit organization that is constantly looking for ways to assist the community. The annual health fair is one of the ways the club aims to fulfill the needs of the community through awareness and prevention.
“Where there is a need, there is a lion,” said Navarro.
