Thanks for successful Rotary Blood Screening

The success of the Rotary Blood Screening program this month is truly a reflection of the Essentia Health and the Sanford Health organizations dedication to the community of Detroit Lakes. We could not wrap up our efforts on the 2011 Rotary Blood Screening program without recognizing the outstanding contributions of the many Essentia and Sandford volunteers, who gave of their time and their knowledge to help their area community members with this blood screening.

Many area residents had the opportunity to have a blood sample drawn which was tested for various health measurements. Blood tests can be the simplest, most inexpensive ways to keep up with your health. Your blood tells a great deal about what is going on in your body, and the tests tend to be highly accurate. Doctors can use the information from the blood test as it provides a fast, easy way to catch health problems.

The Detroit Lakes Noon Rotary would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to Essentia St. Mary's Hospital for providing Rotary the space in their facility for the blood screening and for all the coffee, juice, and muffins served free of charge to all who participated in this blood screening event. -- Greg Hildenbrand, 2011-12 Detroit Lakes Noon Rotary President
