GIS Spotlight Eyes Improvements

Lion's Eye Clinic.

This week GIS Spotlight is eyeing new developments at the Lion's Eye Clinic, before visiting the West Bay nursing home and finally getting in shape with GIS staff.

With an additional doctor and new, cutting-edge equipment, patients at the Lion's Eye Clinic can look forward to receive world-class eye care.

Hear from the eye specialist and listen as patients talk about the way that recent technology is transforming their treatment experience.

October is Older Persons Month - an opportunity to celebrate and honour our senior citizens. So, join GIS Spotlight for a visit to the Golden Age Retirement Home and spend some time with residents. Also, hear more about the home's day care programme, plus learn how easy it is to improve the quality of life for seniors.

Do you want to lose weight, eat right, and feel better inside and out? If so, tune in and watch GIS: Get in Shape!

This new health and fitness series will run over the next three months and will showcase the efforts of nearly a dozen GIS staff members in their quest to become healthier and happier.

This week we'll introduce you to the participants: Meet a mother of two trying to balance work, kids, and staying in shape; a father who hopes his kids aren't picking up his unhealthy habits, and a woman who has tried everything from diets and boot camps to personal trainers and seaweed wraps.

Then hear them weigh in on why they want change for the better and how the GIS: Get in Shape! support group will help them reach their goals.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme airs on Mondays at 6:30 pm on Cayman27, and again on Thursdays at 7:30 pm on Island24. All the stories seen in this week's edition can also be found on YouTube.

Comments and suggestions about the programme are always welcome. Viewers can provide feedback by e-mailing Producer/Host Heather Hopson.
