Retina Screening Gives Vision

WE News Release

Together we can have a greater impact on improving the health of our neighbors and the island community we love.  That is the philosophy of a large group of health professionals and volunteers who will be on Molokai during the first week of February.    The purpose is to reduce preventable blindness and assist the community in identifying approaches and strategies which can lead to better health and longer, stronger, happier  lives.

Retina screening is a free service provided by a partnership between Molokai’s Lions Club, Project Vision Hawaii and WE… a hui for health.  Retina screening is offered as follows:

Grace Episcopal Church, Kualapu`u Thursday, Feb. 6 10am – 4pm
Kalani`ana`ole Hall, Kaunakakai Sunday, Feb. 9 10am – 4pm

Retina screenings, as well as more comprehensive wellness screening and information will be offered as follows at:
Home Pumehana, Kaunakakai Friday, Feb. 7 10am – 4pm
Kalani`ana`ole Hall, Kaunakakai Saturday, Feb. 8 10am – 4pm

Everyone on the island knows the Lions’ dedication to service to the community.   Lions spend countless hours every year to better the world in which we all live.  Nearly a hundred years ago, Helen Keller, champion of blind persons, challenged Lions to become “knights for the blind.”  The Lions have never wavered in answering the call.
