    Six local Rotary clubs sponsored a fundraising event held recently at Cooper’s Seafood Restaurant donating part of the funds to the Edward R. Leahy Jr. Center Clinic for the Uninsured. Rotary clubs of Abington, Dunmore, North Scranton, Scranton, North Pocono and the Passport Club participated. The Friday evening event raised $1,340 from basket raffle and 50/50 events to support the work of the clinic.

    The Leahy Clinic, now in its 12th year at The University of Scranton, provides free non-emergency healthcare to uninsured Lackawanna County residents who may otherwise forego healthcare due to cost or seek care in hospital emergency rooms. Through the innovative collaboration of community health provider volunteers with undergraduate and graduate student volunteers and faculty members, as well as other University resources, the clinic has been able to offer free care including medical, counseling, physical therapy and low vision services, along with exercise and nutrition classes.
