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.
Families Learn Tips to Foster Closeness - Parent Positive Series Finale
Community members gathered for the series finale of Parent Positive, a free speaker series that connects health experts with local families to provide education on important topics affecting the community. Dr. Robert Brooks presented on tips to foster closeness and factors to help families experience greater warmth and respect.
March for Babies – Bucks County 2017
Doylestown Health was proud to support the March of Dimes March for Babies 2017 – Bucks County walk, helping to fight premature birth and other life-threatening issues for babies. Doylestown Health professionals were on site, and offered health information, giveaways and cheered walkers on!
Doylestown Health teamed up with Wegmans Food Markets and Pharmacy for a nutrition expo, where shoppers learned practical nutrition tips, healthy on-the-go options, and were offered preventative health screenings and grocery store tours to guide them to the healthiest options
Poison Prevention: Play It Safe Program
Children at the Bucks County Children's Museum learned to stay out of harm's way during this household safety and poison prevention program. Learning the importance of poison safety, children participated interactively through fun activities such as the "poison toss" and "mystery look-alike" game. Continuing their learning, kids engaged in facilitated discussion and ultimately got creative by crafting their very own Mr. Yuk face!
Designer House Preview Gala
Bucks County Designer House & Gardens opened its doors for the Designer House Preview Gala, giving attendees a sneak peek at the professional transformation of Hill Crest Manor, an 1808 Victorian farmhouse. Guests enjoyed an elegant night with gourmet fare and dancing, and proceeds benefitted Doylestown Health's Richard A. Reif Heart Institute.
As one of the seven races in the Bucks 5K series, Cornerstone invited runners to participate in their 5K. Proceeds from the event supported The Friends of the Heart Institute, an organization consisting of dedicated community volunteers, caregivers and Doylestown Health Associates who are committed to advancing the highest quality cardiac and vascular care to patients and their families.
Walkers Learned About the Benefits of Exercise as You Age
Doylestown Health's monthly walking program, Walk With A Doc, featured a discussion on how exercise can benefit older adults let by Steve White, director of Security. Walkers also learned about early heart attack signs, enjoyed refreshments and took a 1.6 mile walk around the hospital campus.
