Moment of Inspiration - Lynne Gilmore & Roberto Montt

President Lynne and Roberto discussed how our Club is collaborating with Entheos Audiology and others to request a global grant to support the opening of a second audiology screening clinic in Guatemala.  Thanks to Holli Seabury for her assistance with the global grant process.
 
Roberto expressed his thanks to our Club for the work with the global grant - "Partnering with you gives a breath of hope to our kids."
