Speaker Val Canto-Soler - Director of CellSight
CellSight - Breakthrough Vision Research 
Val Canto-Soler, Ph.D., is the Doni Solich Family Chair in Ocular Stem Cell Research and the Director of CellSight – the Ocular Stem Cell and Regeneration Research Program at the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Throughout her training and early stages of her independent carrier, she acquired substantial expertise on the mechanisms regulating retinal progenitor cell differentiation in vivo and in vitro. This expertise has been a critical foundation for the current main area of research in her lab, which is directed to the development of stem cell-based technology for the treatment of retinal degenerative diseases.
Using human induced pluripotent stem cells Dr. Canto-Soler and her research team have recently established a method to generate light-sensitive miniature human retinas in a laboratory dish. At CellSight, they are currently using this breakthrough technology to develop novel stem cell-based therapeutics to save and restore sight in patients with blinding diseases.

Denver Lions Save a Person from Eviction for $142 
Denver Lion's Club funded the purchase of headphones for a legally deaf person in Denver. Because of the hearing impairment, this person was facing eviction for playing music too loudly. After agreeing with the landlord to listen to music through headphones, they were able to stay in their home. Without the funding from Denver Lion's Club for the headphones, this would not have been possible
A little help can go a long way in helping someone.  This is the Lion's way.

Need Rude Park Directors
Hi Lions
The Rude Park Board of Directors is in need of 3-4 additional members. This group is committed to helping all the children of the center and in addition maintaining the building until we can get the funds raised to build an entirely new center.  This area in Denver is undergoing a huge renewal and we will be right in the middle of it.  Join us and help one of the Lions Club of Denver's pillars continue work that has been going on for over fifty years.  If  you want more information, give me a call or email your request.
