Brad Baker, CEO of the Mid-South Lions Sight and Hearing Service, Inc., was recently honored as a "Champion of Change" by our nation's capitol. Baker and ten other key members of Lions Club International were invited to the White House to share their ideas for "winning the future" with government leaders including Valerie Jarrett, senior advisor to President Obama. We congratulate Mr. Baker and the Mid-South Lions for this incredible achievement.

This story was recently spotlighted in the Lions Quarterly video magazine. The video segment also features the Adult Specialty Center and the Lions Low Vision Center at the UT Hamilton Eye Institute, where comprehensive ophthalmologist Alinda McGowin, MD, and low-vision therapist Orli Weisser-Pike can be seen interacting with Lions patients.
