The Lions Vision Care Centre at the Health Sciences Centre is in need of a Retinal Imaging Camera; a specialized piece of equipment that allows ophthalmologists to properly see and monitor damage to retinas, caused by a variety of medical conditions, including diabetes. Earlier this week, the Lions Club announced donations totaling $20,500 toward the camera and are hoping to inspire others to join them in making a gift.

Here’s Jean Bartkowiak, President and CEO of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, and CEO of Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute, receiving his flu shot to help protect himself, his family, and his coworkers from the influenza virus.
Influenza, commonly known as “the flu”, is a respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus. It is highly contagious and spreads rapidly from person to person. Fortunately, the influenza vaccine is safe and effective and can benefit people of all ages.
Even if you’re healthy, getting immunized against influenza is a great way to protect those around you where you live, work and play. For more information about how you can be wise and immunize, visit http://www.thunderbayflu.ca/Flu/Vaccines.htm
