Over 34 million Americans have diabetes and face its devastating and serious complications which include heart disease, stroke, amputation, end-stage kidney disease, blindness and death. The Lions Club International Foundation recognized the overwhelming need to fight for diabetes relief and local clubs stepped up to support the cause. On Wednesday, July 28, Karl Jackson, Lions Club District 14-M Governor, his wife Alice who is a member of the Monongahela Donora Area Lions Club, along with other club members Michelle Clapsaddle, Catherine Waller and R.C., presented a check for $745.83 to Mark Spitzer, executive director, The Monongahela Valley Hospital Foundation.

District Governor Jackson oversees 45 clubs with approximately 1,500 members in four counties: Fayette, Greene, Somerset and Washington. Each of the clubs participates in fundraising for multiple projects and causes. The district makes yearly donations to health care facilities within their four counties and this year District Governor Jackson made the decision to donate funds to MVH to support diabetes education and prevention. The Lions Club has a history of supporting MVH through partnerships on fundraisers and volunteerism and continues to offer support to the health system and the efforts to educate our communities about diabetes and prevention.

MVH is dedicated to diabetes prevention and maintenance which is a prominent health concern in the mid-Mon Valley area. It is one of only two hospitals in Southwestern Pennsylvania and 85 among all hospitals in the United States to achieve Advanced Certification for Inpatient Diabetes Education by The Joint Commission.
