Dakota Lions Sight & Health

One of the missions of the Lions of North Dakota and South Dakota, as well as Lions worldwide, is to restore the gift of sight and health.   Advancements in medicine and technology have resulted in the ability to transplant an ever increasing amount of human tissue resulting in a growing demand for eye and tissue donors.

Attached is a video designed to encourage the Lions of North Dakota and South Dakota and their partners to spread the word of the need for additional donors and to encourage them to support the unification of the ND and SD Lions Eye Banks into the Dakota Lions Sight and Health to better meet that mission.  (The number of donors from ND has increased considerably since the number indicated on this video.)

The video initially resulted from a presentation made by Dakota Lions Sight and Health CEO, Marcy Dimond and Dakota Lion Sight and Health Community Relations Outreach Coordinator, Alan  Berdahl at the 2015 North Dakota State Lions Convention.  The presentation was later recorded at a Fargo Lions Club meeting, then edited and produced by Nate Manning from the NDSU Communications Department.

Lions Club Leaders and Partners—LET’S ALL WORK TOGETHER TO RESTORE THE GIFT OF SIGHT AND HEALTH OF THOSE IN NEED.  Please show this video to your club or organization and talk to your family, friends and associates about becoming donors!.

A Emergency Medical Response Dog (EMRD) is trained to assist an individual with epilepsy, seizure disorder, or hypoglycemic unawareness.  That's me the last one...Diabetic Alert EMRD. I'm learning how to use my nose to detect sudden drops in my partner's blood sugar through scent and trainer Vicki is teaching my how to alert them so that they can monitor their blood sugar an consume something sweet.  My ability to detect and react to hypoglycemic episodes helps my life partner avoid loss of consciousness and subsequent life-threatening effects.

All while, changing their life, as well as their family's life. Imagine being part of the change!
