Workshops and Clinics

LOWLINC takes its responsibility to the broader community seriously, sponsoring programs in which residents of both Lake of the Woods and the surrounding area are urged to participate. Among these programs are workshops and clinics that promote health and wellness among older adults. We partner with various groups and organizations to carry out these programs. These are some of the events sponsored to date.


Flu Vaccination Clinic

LOWLINC partnered with our local CVS pharmacy to conduct a drive-through flu vaccination clinic for Lake of the Woods residents on October 3, 2020. CVS provided the staff to verify paperwork, check temperatures and administer both the regular and high-dose flu vaccines, giving out 206 shots. LOWLINC supplied volunteers for traffic control and hospitality.

Stop the Bleed Workshop

With the Mary Washington Hospital Trauma Team and the LOW Volunteer Rescue Squad, LOWLINC conducted a Stop the Bleed workshop for members, volunteers, and the LOW community. Forty-two LOW residents learned and practiced techniques to use in an emergency to stop excessive bleeding. June 29, 2019.
Hands-only CPR Workshop

A hands-only CPR workshop was conducted with Mary Washington Healthcare and LOW Fire and Rescue. The workshop was attended by 64 LOW residents.
