Lions Clubs International and Diabetes Awareness

by Linda Arhonian

Lions Clubs International and Diabetes Awareness go hand in hand.  With an international goal to prevent blindness, it is important to Lions worldwide that everyone understands the risks associated with diabetes, both Type I and II.  People with diabetes are at risk of losing sight due to diabetic retinopathy. It is the leading cause of vision loss in adults of working age (20 to 65 years) in industrialized countries.

The Holliston Lions Club will have a diabetes awareness table at the upcoming flu clinic on Saturday, October 28th, at Placentino Cafetorium from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon.  Please stop by to pick up donated literature and healthy snacks.
