Stroke Awareness Day 2019

Posted: Tue, 19/03/2019 - 7:54pm

 
'Over half of all strokes can be caused by high blood pressure', and it is estimated that over five million people across the UK don’t realise they have raised blood pressure, because often there are no apparent or unusual symptoms.

 
The Stroke Association and Rotary International are joining forces again this year to help raise awareness of one of the biggest risk factors for stroke:

  • high blood pressure

And as part of this initiative, we are inviting local residents and visitors to spare a few minutes on Saturday 13 April to take a free, simple, quick and painless Blood Pressure Test as part of the annual “Know Your Blood Pressure Day".  

Testing will take place:

  • from 9.30 am until 12.30 pm on Saturday 13 April 2019 in the St Francis Church Hall, Ravenswood Avenue, West Wickham, Kent BR4 0PW

If you are away from the area on the day of the tests, simply ring and ask your Doctor about a test.

    Le Tran Quach, a Rotary Foundation Global Scholar

    Posted: Tue, 18/04/2017 - 8:35pm

    Le Tran Quach, aged 24 from Atlanta, USA, has been sponsored by the Rotary Foundation as a Global Grant Scholar to study for a Master of Science in epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in London, UK for the school year 2016-17.

    The Grant and other funding opportunities through the Rotary Foundation are possible due to the generosity and money-generating activities of Rotarians.  Valued between $30,000 and $200,000, the Global Grant is awarded to fund activities that correspond to the Areas of Focus of Rotary International. Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of diseases within a population, and thus falls under one of six Areas: Disease, Prevention and Control.  Though medicine and epidemiology are related, to understand the difference, the patient is to the doctor, what a community is to an epidemiologist. Other Areas include Prevention and Resolution of Conflict and Promoting Peace, Providing Clean Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene, Mother and Child Health, Basic Education and Health, Economic and Community Development.  Other activities funded include eligible projects.

    Le earned a dual-Bachelor of Arts at the American University of Paris in International Economics and International and Comparative Politics (2010-15).  She has experienced with the American government and international and local organizations that work in humanitarian emergencies in Atlanta, Washington DC, Paris, and Geneva

    To receive the Grant, Le had to apply to her District point-of-contact after soliciting a local club in Atlanta to nominate her.  She competed against others with an application process of two rounds, short essays and in round 2 an in-person panel interview with about 8 Rotarians from her District.  When asked, Le explained that she wants to work in humanitarian emergencies as a public health professional and that schools like the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, which ranks globally as first or third according to different measures, are ideal preparation for someone who wants to have a meaningful career.  

    Once awarded a Global Scholar's Grant, the Roitary Foundation (which is based in the USA) contacts a Rotary Club local to the area where the Student is to study in order that the chosen club can help admisister the Award and also 'look after' the Student during their Study in a foreign country.  This is how Le came to be  known to the Rotary Club of Langley Park.


    Le is pictured above with her local Rotarians from District 6900 and RC Clayton County and Lake Spivey - she is leftmost on the first row..  Lee attended our 2016 Beer Festival and also the Dstrict 1120 Conference in Eastbourne last October.  Le also had the opportunity to attend Rotary orientation at Alcester (at the headquarter for Rotary of Great Britain and Ireland) in December 2016, along with the current year's cohort of other Grant recipients. 

    Her parents are Vietnamese, and she has two sisters and two brothers.  In her free time, she enjoys reading, travelling, volunteering, and learning languages.  Le volunteers with Rotary Club of Langley Park D1120 and she looks forward to continue to remain in contact even after her departure this summer.  She looks forward to doing tours of her School with Rotarians from Langley Park, especially to showcase the crocus plot dedicated to Polio in her School's garden.
