Urgent Care Centers versus Emergency Rooms - What's Best for You and When?

Dr. Ellis recently opened the Lincoln Urgent Care Center in the Safeway Shopping Center on Lincoln Blvd.  He recently moved to Lincoln from Chico and established the new business in Lincoln.    https://www.lincolnurgentcare.com/

Member Jan Hutchinson reported:

"Dr. Ellis will not be ‘selling'  the Lincoln Urgent Care Center, but will speak to the history of Urgent Care Centers and what they can do vs. Emergency Rooms; and how we can make the decision which facility to use relative to our symptoms which require immediate treatment.

I attended his presentation at the Community Forum in the SCLH Presentation Hall recently, where the Forum Chair stated that Forum members voted unanimously that our entire community would benefit from this valuable community service as well as his presentation."

District Governor Ray Ward Sep 12, 2019 12:00 PM
DG Visit and Update on What is Happening in District 5180

This is our annual meeting with the District 5180 District Governor. 

Ray Ward is the son of a U.S. Marine. He attended nine schools by his sophomore year in high school. When his father retired from the U.S.M.C., they settled in Penryn where Ray graduated from Del Oro High School. He says that a military family is a great environment to grow up in since all that moving forces you to make friends quickly.

Ray earned his B.S. degree in Business from National University. Ray currently owns an insurance agency specializing in health insurance and other employee benefits. 

Ray joined Rotary in 2007 and served as President of the Rotary Club of Rocklin/Loomis Basin during the 2010-11 Rotary year. Since that time, he has been active at the district level serving on many committees (up to seven at a time) including Chair of the Website Committee, Membership Committee and Co-Chair of the 2016 District Conference. In 2016, he also became an Assistant Governor for Area 8.

Ray has been married to his wife, Gena for over 20 years and they have a wonderful daughter, Alyssa who is currently a college student. Some of Ray’s greatest joys have been seeing the positive impact on Alyssa through interacting with Rotarians.

Ray enjoys listening to music and is a huge Parrothead (fan of Jimmy Buffett). He has seen Jimmy Buffett in concert so many times he can’t remember how many, but he can recall seeing him perform in at least 12 different locations, including Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Bowl.
