A NEW ERA BEGINS FOR LIONS
From Our Past International President DR. Naresh Aggarwal
Progress can come with a steep price. As people worldwide enjoy fast food and work non-strenuous jobs, diabetes has become a global crisis. Nationwide, the picture is even grimmer. One in three children born in the United States is expected to have diabetes in their lifetimes. The toll on society will be enormous. Diabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney damage and nerve damage. It also causes blindness. Lions Clubs International (LCI) will not sit on the sidelines as the disease mounts. We will be in the thick of efforts to prevent and treat the disease. At our 100th International Convention we formally announced our new commitment to curtailing diabetes. Lion’s leaders have built a global technical diabetes working group, funded pilot programs and developed step-by-step guides to easily walk Lions and Leos through the planning and delivery of diabetes projects.
WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE THE WORLD
The Lions/Lioness/Leos of District 14-D are committed to the following LCI goals in this fight Against Diabetes.
To prevent type 2 diabetes through healthy lifestyles and healthy communities.
To control diabetes related complications through education, support and increased access to care.
To support and advocate for research that leads to new treatments and technologies that can change lives.
Lions can be the Difference in Diabetes
