The Rotary Foundation has major focus areas to make our impact stronger throughout the world.  During December, the focus on member education and advocacy is the work we do in disease prevention and treatment.
The "elevator speech" we can all use in educating our friends and associates about why we are proud to be Rotarians in this area is:
We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases like polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria.  We improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in developing areas.
