Doctor Mehmet Oz and Deepak Chopra to Speak on June 8th in Redwood City, California at the "Legacy of Health, Wellness and Education Symposium" at the Oracle Conference Center

FOSTER CITY, CA--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - On Saturday, June 8th, the Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club will be presenting a one day Health and Wellness Symposium featuring presentations by Dr. Mehmet Oz, Deepak Chopra and many more health and wellness experts in many different fields. The symposium will take place from 8:15am to 3:45pm at the Oracle Conference Center at 345 Oracle Parkway in Redwood City, California.

The Health and Wellness Symposium will address many of the critical health issues in today's society... issues like obesity, issues like poor nutrition, issues like how to help prevent yourself from having heart attacks and strokes... issues like how to help protect yourself against certain types of cancer... issues like how to get the proper medical care, how to know what your vital numbers are and what they mean... and what you can do about them so you can be in better control of your own health... issues like how to help identify and prevent the spread of infectious diseases... and issues like how to change your diet and lifestyle to help you achieve a better, happier, healthier life.

"There are some very critical health issues out there right now, and despite the fact that we like to think that America has the best healthcare system in the world, the fact of the matter is that there are some very serious health problems in each and every community in America, and if we don't address these problems now, we'll face some very serious health problems very soon, as a society, and in many of our own personal lives," according to PSILC, a special interest Lions Club for medical clinics and education. The club's clinics are the first line of healthcare for many people.

"These kinds of health problems, and the solutions to these kinds of health problems are some of the topics that will be discussed at the Health and Wellness Symposium on June 8th, and they will be presented at a level that everyone can understand. This is a health Symposium for the public, and people in the medical profession should attend it as well."

The Health and Wellness Symposium will cover a tremendous amount of information on many of the urgent health problems facing society and individuals, and anyone who is concerned about the health of their family, the health of their loved ones, and the health of themselves will be able to get a lot of potentially lifesaving information from the lineup of experts who will be speaking at this Symposium on June 8th.

The Legacy of Health, Wellness and Education Symposium is a special presentation of the Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club (PSILC), headquartered at 149 Flying Cloud Isle in Foster City, California, 94404.

The Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club (PSILC) is a medical and education service club within the Lions Club organization. Lions Club International is the World's Largest Service Club Organization with 46,000 clubs and 1,350,000 global members.

The PSILC was founded by Dr. Eleanor Lindquist-Britter and her husband, Bill Britter, in January 2012.

The club has over half of its members in the medical profession, with its primary focus on health care initiatives in partnerships with schools, hospitals, senior centers and local communities. 

In 2012, the PSILC delivered medical clinics and nutrition workshops to thousands of children, seniors and adults in San Mateo County, California last year.

Their clinics and programs are designed to help and teach individuals how to take better care of their families and better care of themselves. "This will in turn help decrease medical costs and the spread of infectious diseases. Statistics show that 82% of all diseases are treatable when diagnosed early and treatment is received. Infectious diseases are also containable when detected early."

Diseases like diabetes, certain types of cancer, heart disease, etc., and infectious diseases such as Typhoid Fever, Measles, Tuberculosis, etc., are containable, and they can be contained when detected early. With infectious diseases, if we catch it early, we can prevent an epidemic, and that also includes certain viruses.

Some of the testing that the PSILC does in many of their free clinics includes nutrition glucose testing, cholesterol testing, blood pressure testing, blood oxygen testing, Belly Fat testing and eye exams. If they detect any signs of pre-diabetes, extremely high blood pressure, or any combination of symptoms that could lead to a health episode, they refer people to proper medical care and they even get emergency treatment for these people.

Their clinics and programs cover almost all age groups. In their work with children from K-12, they do nutrition clinics in schools on a regular basis, and they also participate in Wellness Expos produced by the San Mateo Daily Journal six times a year.

They also work with hospitals, homeless shelters and large corporations.

By meeting with people face to face and one to one through their classes and free medical clinics, and by educating people about their vital sign numbers, and by listening to their physical needs and complaints, the PSILC can help outline a safe, nutritional program specific to each individual and then recommend the medical attention that they need to pursue.

In this way, through their symposiums, medical/wellness clinics, nutrition coaching, and by distributing handouts with health and wellness information, the PSILC hopes to be able to enlighten people to the importance of good nutrition and exercise to help them obtain maximum health and longevity, and to help them secure their health and prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

*ONGOING SPONSORSHIP FUNDING AND PARTICIPATION OPPORTUNITIES:

There are many types of companies that might be interested in become involved with the activities of the Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club whose first line of health care services are free to the community through their clinics.

"Companies that are involved in Food Advocacy programs, Education Advocacy programs, companies that are involved in youth services and resource programs, and businesses that are Health Care system providers, Wellness providers, and all kinds of companies that support the well being of our youth and emerging future leaders should consider sponsoring the activities of the Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club," says the PSILC.

The Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club hopes to be able to partner with more medical institutions, private foundations, large corporations and private individuals who have matching goals for a healthier population.

Through their clinics, classes and workshops, the Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club already serves close to 6,500 people in one year.

To continue this kind of work, and to help them reach thousands more people who need these kinds of services, the Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club needs ongoing funding to help them conduct their free clinics and programs. They also need more equipment, more materials, and a lot more funding to help them reach the thousands of people who can benefit from their services and their efforts to help build stronger and healthier communities.

They are the first line of health care, especially for those who are uninsured, or underinsured and the community at large.

"The Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club is an organization whose clinics and programs benefit many individuals, and it would be a great association for companies and organizations wishing to become more involved in the health and well being of the community," says Dr. Britter.

Companies and organizations that are already among the sponsors and partners of the Peninsula Special Interest Lions group include:
