Jan Lovelady
Denver Southeast Rotary Club's Health Projects in Nepal

Jan is originally from Oklahoma and then spent 11 years up in Frisco, CO, before moving to Lone Tree in 2003.  Jan’s professional career was in IT for 17 years and then in mortgage lending for 14 years. 

After retiring from full time work in 2006, Jan found her passion working part time for Centura Global Health Initiatives.  She now calls herself a Global Health Volunteer. 

In 2014, in conjunction with the Kantipur Rotary Club in Kathmandu, Nepal, Jan began working on a Rotary global grant to improve the health of women in the rural district of Makwanpur Nepal.  After 4 long years, this project was just completed.  Health care workers in 30 villages were trained in how to examine, diagnose, and treat women with pelvic organ prolapse.  Over 6,000 women were treated in the women’s health clinics that were held multiple times in these villages.

In 2017, Jan’s Denver Southeast Rotary Club started working with the local 501c3, Global Dental Relief, to sponsor pediatric dental clinics in Nepal.  Her presentation will review these projects and outline how Global Dental Relief is now providing food packages to underprivileged children and their families in Kathmandu.
