We believe good health care is everyone’s right. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care.
Disease results in misery, pain, and poverty for millions of people worldwide. That’s why treating and preventing disease is so important to us. We lead efforts both large and small. We set up temporary clinics, blood donation centers, and training facilities in underserved communities struggling with outbreaks and health care access. We design and build infrastructure that allows doctors, patients, and governments to work together.
Our members combat diseases like malaria, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and polio. Prevention is important, which is why we also focus on health education and bringing people routine hearing, vision, and dental care.
HOW ROTARY MAKES HELP HAPPEN
We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases. Rotary members have hundreds of health projects underway around the world at any given time.

Virtual Meeting on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 @ 12: 15 pm – 1:15 pm
Ask every Rotarian in your Club and area to consider which of their friends, neighbors, or work colleagues would be a good fit for club membership.
Why? Because District 5160’s Fall Membership drive is scheduled for the week October 18th through October 22nd.
Consistent with RI President Shekhar Mehta’s message of “Each-One-Bring-One” we are encouraging every Rotarian in our District to bring a guest to their meeting that week in an effort to promote and increase membership.
Our virtual program on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 12:15 pm will feature Joel Sjostrom, President and CEO of the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, Eve Birge, Executive Director of White Pony Express and Project Second Chance. Our program will feature how we partner with different agencies in the community to assist those in need. We hope to inspire and engage our members and guests and show what we can do as an international organization. Again, the message is simply that each member brings a guest to their club meeting that week.
District 5160 is offering prizes to the clubs that most actively and successfully participate. We also will recognize all Rotarians who participate and who bring a guest to their meetings during membership drive week.
Also, the District membership committee is excited to announce the District membership photo contest, which will have its own prizes for the clubs that participate including up to $1,200 in cash prizes and 6000 in PHF total points.
It’s a new year for Rotary International and for the Rotary Club of Concord Diablo. With that comes our new Rotary International President, Shekhar Mehta, a new president for the Rotary Club of Concord Diablo. I am Patricia Ramirez and will serve as President with President Elect, Rocky Gernhardt and out esteemed Board of Directors. We are all believers in our new 2021 – 2022 theme, Serve to Change Others.
