The Rotary Club of Lake Placid had a very busy breakfast meeting today, hearing about a new idea to improve doctor - young patient communications, listening to a Rotary Exchange student make some observations about time spent in an area school, concluding with several members receiving Paul Harris awards.  
Dr. Duncan Winter presented an idea to improve communications between doctors and younger patients using puppetry.  Duncan envisions this as part of a medical resident's training and suggested we consider making this a project with medical schools in the larger area (Albany, Burlington).   
 
Mia Pouet, an exchange student from France and sponsored by the Ausable Valley Rotary Club, gave us some observations about her time in a local school system, comparing it to school in her home country.  She also participated in a flag exchange from her home club.
 
Paul Harris awards were presented to several of our members.
