400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care. Rotarians lead efforts to eradicate disease through our Rotary Foundation. Our focus is attacking diseases such as Polio, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, HIV/AIDS, MS and others. Disease will not eradicate itself and that’s why our efforts are so important. We focus on prevention through Health Education to bring individuals routine hearing, vision and dental care. We educate and equip communities to stop the spread life-threatening diseases around the world. The efforts of Rotary are ongoing throughout the world.

We have included some of the photos and commentary elsewhere in this newsletter.
