Lions Club Talks

We hope to be able to host speakers in partnership with the Latrobe Lions Club on a series of health-related programs in 2021.  Past or planned topics include:

Macular Degeneration

The latest research and progress on macular degeneration, a debilitating disease that robs so many of our family and friends of their precious eye sight. Lawton Snyder, CEO of the Eye and Ear Foundation will be the guest speaker. The public is invited to come and hear what new things are being discovered. The Latrobe Lions Club has long been one of the leading advocates for eye care programs in the area. They are happy to sponsor this important program. Those attending are welcome to bring old eyeglasses for donation to the Lions Club’s Recycle For Sight Program.

Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s disease, the most common cause of dementia among older adults, is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Dr. Oscar L. Lopez, a professor of neurology and psychiatry and director of the University of Pittsburgh’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center will fill in area residents about the latest findings on dementia.

All hosted programs at 416 Weldon Street are free to attend, but we do accept donations.

For events at 416 Weldon Street, parking will be available along Weldon Street on Fridays.  Additional parking will be available for evening and Saturday use at the Kelly, Sparber, White & Associates parking lot on the corner of Weldon and Alexandria streets
