Doylestown Health is committed to keeping our community healthy through education and outreach. Here is a recap of our efforts in the community this past month:
Don't Ignore the Snore! Sleep Apnea Risks and Treatment - Coffee Talk Series
Sleep specialist Les Szekely, MD, discussed the harmful risk factors associated with sleep apnea – a common disorder that can disrupt your breathing while you sleep – and preventative treatment options that help manage symptoms, and promote a better night's sleep.
Walk With A Doc Attendees Learn About Exercising with a Breathing Problem
Manuel Jimenez-Serrano, MD, led November's Walk With a Doc, where he gave a brief discussion on the benefits walking can have for those with breathing problems, including COPD. After the talk, attendees enjoyed a refreshing walk with Doylestown Health clinicians around the hospital campus.
Children Treat and Triage at Annual Teddy Bear Clinic
Children had a "bear-y" good time treating their best (stuffed) friend at the Annual Teddy Bear Clinic. An interactive experience utilizing medical play, children experienced a doctor's visit without fear. Teddy bears were triaged and treated in this enjoyable event held at the Bucks County Children's Museum!
Giggle, Squiggle, and Play
Doylestown Health pediatric healthcare professionals participated in Horsham Library's program, "Giggle, Squiggle, and Play." Healthcare professionals interacted with parents, and shared expertise in different areas of child development and education. Play, conversation, and distribution of materials are hallmarks of this educational event designed for parents and their children, ages 12 to 36 months.
Community Health Discussions Coming to a TV Near You
Health Matters with Doylestown Health is a collaboration between the Central Bucks High School TV club and Doylestown Health.

Co-hosted by a student and Doylestown Health's pediatric outreach manager, the series highlights important health issues that are relevant to students and parents in the Central Bucks school district. November's segment focused on illegal drugs. Watch video here.
