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:

In an effort to promote bone and joint health, Doylestown Health hosted a one-day conference on May 14th with education, advice, and resources for those with arthritis.

The Community was "Up to the Challenge" at the Outdoor Challenge

Doylestown Health partnered with Cornerstone Clubs and the Central Bucks Family YMCA to offer free outdoor fitness activities on June 4th for all exercise levels. Events included an obstacle course, 1-mile fun walk, and mini-fitness classes.

Fishing for Sun Safety at the Willow Dale Elementary Fun Fair
