Once more the St. Maarten Lions Club was at the realm of Health Care Awareness whereby they presented a check in the amount of US$1200 to the Diabetes Foundation to purchase 300 Cholesterol Strips which the Foundation will use at the St. Maarten Lions Club 3rd Annual Health and Wellness Fair on Saturday March 26th to carry out the necessary cholesterol tests.
In receiving the check President of the Diabetes Foundation Mrs. Charlotte (Lotty) Peterson stressed on the importance for Diabetics to get their regular check ups, always continue to use their medication and eat the correct food.
Medication for diabetics may never be shared with other diabetics because each diabetic needs their own doses and not getting sufficient medication can be very dangerous. Once diabetics are disciplined they can live a healthy and lengthy life.
The general public is invited to come out and receive free testing at the Lions Health & Wellness Fair which is being held this coming Saturday at the Festival Village.
