PHC Auxiliary Receives Special Screenings
The members of the Peninsula Hospital Center Auxiliary received very special screenings at their March meeting. Raul Padilla, Opthalmology Technician, made glaucoma screenings and vision screening available for everyone in attendance. The Food and Nutrition Department, in recognition of “March is National Nutrition Month,” provided Body Mass Index screenings and nutritional information.
The auxiliary is in the midst of its annual Raffle Sales to benefit Peninsula Hospital Center. A total of $5,500 in cash prizes will be awarded to lucky winners at the August drawing. The PHC Auxiliary is a group of community residents who have made it their mission to assist the Hospital Center through advocating on its behalf and through various fundraising activities. The Auxiliary meets at 12 noon for a luncheon on the first Tuesday of each month in the Meditation Room at Peninsula Center for Extended Care and Rehabilitation. The meeting features informational presentations about a wide variety of services, programs and health topics of interest. Sheila Schwartz, the organization’s president, always encourages new memberships and welcomes all interested members. “The Auxiliary members are informed and active and we combine entertaining activities with learning,” says Schwartz. “We always encourage new members.”
