This weekend was a busy one! Saturday was the annual American Diabetes Association (ADA) Step Out Walk. Dr Tafoya is the president of the ADA community leadership board. As president he welcomed the walkers with a speech. Pacific Retina Care (sm) was a Presenting Sponsor, so we had Mile Markers along the course. This year we did not have a team. But we did participate in the Health Fair once again. We had such a positive response with our roulette wheel last year that we decided to use it again. Our booth was overwhelmed with walkers! Hundreds and hundreds! We gave out Pacific Retina Care (sm) pens, mini-flashlights, lanyards, green bags, insulated tumblers and stress balls. We were fortunate enough to have the help of a wonderful volunteer. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without him. Thank you, Teava! It is our hope that education will help people to realize that Diabetes is a serious disease that can affect your eyes.
Today we celebrate Dr Tafoya’s birthday! If you are in the neighborhood, come by to wish him a happy day.
