Charles Hartwig introduced Dr. Mary Hartwig, Director of Nursing Education
and a faculty member at the UAMS/AHEC Family Medical Center and residency
program in Jonesboro, who presented an illustrated program entitled "The Top
10 FAQs about Diabetes." [for Lions Diabetes Awareness Month]. The
outstanding presentation had many eye-opening features, such as warnings
such as the need to keep up immunizations. (President Curt Hodges indicated
that he hoped to use the presentation as the basis of a feature on diabetes
in the Jonesboro Sun this coming weekend, since it is vital that information
about this epidemic is more widely shared.)
Programs for the rest of November, scheduled by Lion Charles Hartwig, are
listed below (invite a guest!).
