Our speaker this week was Christine Margalis, Accreditation Coordinator with the Lake County General Health District (LCGHD). She gave a lot of insight into the services provided by LCGHD. LCGHD serves all of Lake County, there are no city health departments in Lake County. Christine spoke about a few of the services they provide: WIC programs, vital statistics, mosquito control, pharmaceutical drug disposal, rabies prevention, recreational programs and many others. She also spoke specifically about programs right here in Painesville. Programs such as the Milk Bank Drop Site which provides breast milk to infants in NICU's. The Kiwanis Park Story Walk. They promote bike safety in our community donating both bikes and helmets at several local events.  In the future LCGHD looks forward to helping with Safety Town, the State Street Park Improvement Project, WIC Farmer's Market Nutrition Program, and Healthy Food Pantry Program. 
The members were very involved in the conversation with Christine, by sharing what they knew about the LCGHD and asking many questions. It was a pleasure having Christine speak at our meeting today.
