Health Screening Program

Sanibel-Captiva Rotary welcomed Kurt Peters, Sanibel Captiva Lions Club President, to our podium last week to give us an overview of the club’s Health Screening Program. I don’t know if many Islanders are aware of this program but believe me they should know. This is a one-stop FREE health screening opportunity to have your-blood pressure checked, blood glucose checked (primarily for diabetes), peripheral visual fields checked, testing to determine your intraocular pressure of the eyes (glaucoma), muscular degeneration screening, and a hearing test. These are painless tests that provide a quick easy preventive check for health issue that are unfortunately so common for many of us, especially as we age.

The Lions Club wants everyone on Island to take advantage of this program and has setup five various dates and locations for these Lions Club Health Screening opportunities …Sanibel Senior Center for Life-Nov. 18th, Sanibel Community House-Nov. 21st, and the Sanibel Rec. Center-Jan. 14th, Feb. 15th, and March 14th…all screenings will take place from 9:30AM TO 12:30PM.
