Availability and Statistics of Vaccine's Around the World
My name is Delanie Arend and I am a senior at Parker High School. I am a Valedictorian, and hope to go to either Johns Hopkins University or UW- Madison for pharmacology, specifically creating pharmaceuticals. 
This presentation touches on the vaccine availability throughout the world, and the statistics along with them. It compares the United States to countries with less advanced medical technology, and how it effect populations. Most importantly though, it breaks down how vaccines work, and why they are needed in less fortunate countries.

Larry Nitz | Secretary/Treasurer Apr 15, 2019
Rock River Aero Modelers Society

My name is Larry Nitz, I am the Secretary/Treasurer of the Rock River Aero Modelers Society. I am 76 years old, retired from Woodmans, where I was the Photo Category manager. I started the photo program at Woodmans and managed it for 23 years. Prior to Woodmans I was self-employed owning camera stores, a wholesale photographic business and a bicycle and ski shop.

The hobby of building and flying model planes has been a life long hobby. Within the hobby of model airplanes, I specialize in rubber- band freeflight models. That is to say I can’t make the planes come back to me like the RC guys do. I have to retrieve them myself.

Our club name is the Rock River Aero Modelers Society, RRAMS for short. I will be speaking about the history of our club and the challenges we have in the post 9/11 world and how technology is changing the nature of our hobby. The club has a flying site in Turtle Township on land owned by the township. This land was a dump/landfill and had limited repurposing options. We have been using the site now for about 17 years. The club just completed an overhaul of its site this past year and more projects are on deck for the coming flying season. We also support community projects throughout our membership area.

Vocational Training Team - Training Guatemalan Women to be Birth Attendants

Nancy Commello, Rotary Club of Madison West Towne-Middleton, is trying to create a Vocational Training Team and would very much like to present to clubs in our district. It is an exciting project involving training women in Guatemala to be birth attendants. Vocational training teams will train birth attendants and equip them with supplies. Trainers use two programs— Helping Mothers Survive and Helping Babies Survive—that were developed specifically for use in low-resource countries and have been used successfully since 2010.By creating a self-sustaining program using the “Train the Trainer” model, this project will build the capacity of indigenous birth attendants, thereby allowing them to provide evidence-based care to women and babies in their communities to improve birth outcomes.
