Health, Injury Expert To Address Chester Lioness Club

A health education and injury prevention expert will address the Chester Lioness Club during its next meeting, Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lamplighter Restaurant, Chester.
The program will be presented by Jacqueline Stackhouse Leach, health educator in injury prevention at Morristown Medical Center. She will speak about a Carfit Program offered for seniors and touch on child passenger safety as it relates to grandparents providing day care for their grandchildren. She will also talk about how falls have become the number one reason individuals visit the emergency room and the most common reasons for their falls.
Leach is a lifelong resident of Chester and has been a volunteer Chester First Aid Squad member for 23 years. In October 2016, she was awarded the AAA Community Service Award for her work with prevention Works in the area of child passenger safety which, due to her efforts, has spread from CPS for passenger cars to ambulances, school busses, and children with special needs.
She also received the Essex County Traffic Safety Award and the GDL Champion Award for teaching teen driving.
