    Bringing DEI to Rotary (Aired On February 19, 2023)

    Bringing DEI to Rotary (Aired On February 19, 2023)

    Radio Rotary welcomes Rotarians Boe Loendorf (Cairo Durham Rotary) and Elena Mosley (Hudson Rotary), part of the eight-member Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in Rotary District 7210. The members of this committee are fanning out through District 7210, helping Rotary Clubs increase their commitment to DEI. Rotary was once an international club whose members were primarily wealthy male businessmen or government leaders, which might still describe Rotary in some nations. But in the United States, Rotary has been growing more diverse to reflect the local community.  No longer does Rotary include primarily professionals—people of all vocations are welcome. Since 1987, when Rotary clubs in the United States began to admit women as members, the clubs in this country have become more devoted to service without abandoning fellowship. Clubs actively change their meeting schedules and practices to attract younger members and members of all community groups. From this program you can learn about some of the ways to make DEI happen.

    Village in Zambia Aided by Rotary (Aired On February 5, 2023)

    Rotarians Steven Caine and Laura Lee (Burnt Bills Ballston Lake Rotary) visit Radio Rotary to tell about their efforts to help bring medical facilities to Muchila Center, an isolated village in Zambia—the nearest hospital is two hours away.

    In addition to assistance from the Rotary clubs of Kusinta and Lusaka, the new clinic uses equipment supplied by Project C.U.R.E. Much needed dental facilities and transportation are also part of the nonprofit Muchila Access Project, which will serve over 43,000 persons in the Muchila region.  Burnt Hills Ballston Lake Rotary is working on a Rotary Foundation Global Grant directed primarily toward providing maternal and child health and disease prevention and treatment, including dental health. As many as 1 in 13 women die from maternal related causes in regions like Muchila, compared to 1 in 4,000 in developed countries, and about 80% of the population in the region suffers from oral disease.

    Preventing Substance Abuse through Education (Aired On January 29, 2023)

    Preventing Substance Abuse through Education (Aired On January 29, 2023)

    CAPE is the Council on Addiction Prevention & Education in Dutchess County. For this program, Dora Celestino, Community Educator, returns to Radio Rotary to talk about how CAPE uses education about the harm caused by substance misuse disorder—including addiction to tobacco, alcohol, prescription drugs, or street drugs— as a way to prevent such misuse.  Duchess County currently experiences more overdose deaths than any other county in New York State, mainly due to the synthetic drug fentanyl. While fentanyl may be taken deliberately, it is also used as an additive to other drugs, so persons may be exposed without expecting it. CAPE teaches children, often younger than 13,to avoid buying drugs over the internet. Another frequent misuse of drugs is taking a prescription medicine by raiding a medicine cabinet. But the most common form of drug misuse among children is vaping, nicotine delivered with an electronic device as a substitute for cigarettes. CAPE is also showing a movie about a family after their 19-year-old dies from drug misuse (Life After You at the Millerton Moviehouse)
