JRMC Auxiliary has three speakers
President Eunice Sahr called the meeting of Jamestown Regional Medical Center Auxiliary to order on Oct. 1 with 29 members present. Lynell Madsoe read the prayer.
Trisha Jungels, interim JRMC CEO, was the first of three guest speakers. She spoke on JRMC values and commitment to high standards. The second speaker was Lisa Jackson, Foundation Director. She updated the auxilans on the oncology center. Construction of the cancer unit started Oct. 1 and will take six to eight months.
The third presenter was Leann Ripplinger, who spoke on “CarFit.” One thing older drivers can do to adapt to factors that may affect their driving is to make individual adjustments to find their best person-to-vehicle fit. These adjustments will help drivers benefit from their vehicle’s safety features by helping them feel more comfortable and in better control behind the wheel. On Oct. 11 from 2 to 5:30 p.m., in the Atonement Lutheran Church parking lot, drivers can visit with a CarFit professional and leave with recommended car adjustments and adaptations.
