Dave Jones, former educator and realtor, spoke at the April meeting of the Alpha Eta Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa.
Jones related his health journey since his diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. IPF is a nonreversible disease that affects the air sacs in the lungs. Jones stressed it is important to get an early diagnosis. He attributes his present positive quality of life to his special medication, exercise, oxygen, and the support of his family and IPF support groups.
Alpha Eta’s next meeting is May 20 at Slammin’ Sammies at 5 p.m. Jane Myers, grades 3-5 principal of the Defiance Elementary School, will speak on the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program implemented at DES.
Members should RSVP to Terry Ruyle by Monday.
