Out spreading the word!

— Sue Szydlowski

Ten years ago I began volunteering for the Lebanon Family Health Services as a board member. For years, I had long been familiar with LFHS, but felt an agency of such value to the community deserved my attention.

 

When I became a member of the Board, I realized the breadth of services provided to the community far outreached my previously held perceptions.  It took me about a year to fully understand the range of services and the diversity of clients served by this wonderful agency.  As luck would have it, I became chair of the Outreach and Communications Committee, a perfect opportunity to “spread the word”.

 

It is an honor to support an agency which provides safe, respectful, clinically sound and above all, affordable opportunities to improve the lives of the members of our community. I feel passionately that families of all backgrounds deserve the best medical care regardless of economics.  LFHS provides a safe environment for teens in need of contraception and counseling with unique teen walk-in clinics.  Another aspect of LFHS that stands out for me is the WIC program (Women-Infants and Children) which not only provides funding for healthy foods, but also includes nutritional counseling, farmers market opportunities and breast feeding support.

 

I have long believed in the importance of all people acquiring quality healthcare.  The healthier our population, the more productive our community.  LFHS provides these opportunities for families of diverse backgrounds, regardless of financial status. Excellent healthcare is a right, not a privilege.   As a Board Member, I feel it is our duty to promote these opportunities and I am proud to serve this agency and above all, to support our clients.
