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:
Doylestown Health's Cancer Institute Hosts a Wellness Day for Breast Cancer Patients
Doylestown Health's Cancer Institute joined forces with Unite for HER to provide a wellness day for women diagnosed with breast cancer. Unite for HER is a nonprofit whose mission is to educate women and the community about the role of healthy lifestyle choices in the prevention of disease and the promotion of wellness. Women learned about the benefits of Reiki, acupuncture, eating well, exercise and more.
Children Learned How to Scrub Away Germs
Children gave a "High Five for Handwashing" and learned the benefits of proper handwashing skills to stay healthy! Programs at the Bucks County Children's Museum, Deep Run Presbyterian Nursery School, and Vita Education Services reached 230+ children and parents. Attendees learned how to scrub-a-dub-dub away germs, test their handwashing skills through our "germ simulator," and "play" their way to clean hands through songs, interactive games and a craft worthy of a healthy high-five!
Students Learn About the Five Senses; Benefits of Animal Therapy
Unami Middle School's Special Education class visited Doylestown Hospital for an educational program on the five senses and how they help us in our daily lives. Following the informative program, special guests Joyce Rivas, chair of Doylestown Health's Animal Assisted Activity Program, and her furry pal Scooter shared how pet therapy can help others stay emotionally healthy. Program attendees also learned how animals and humans alike use their senses to help them in their daily lives. Kids had a paws-itively awesome experience!
Exploring Healthcare Careers
Health Matters with Doylestown Health is a collaboration between the Central Bucks High School TV club and Doylestown Health. Students use their video production skills to bring the messages of CB Cares to CBTV. 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. January's segment focused on healthcare careers.
Doylestown Health Celebrates Bicentennial at Kick-off Gala
Doylestown Health is a proud sponsor of Doylestown Township's Bicentennial (1818-2018) Celebration. The festivities kicked off last month, when representatives from Doylestown Health and the Village Improvement Association enjoyed the Bicentennial Gala at the Doylestown Country Club. Although it was one of the coldest nights of the winter, the atmosphere inside was warm and friendly as neighbors enjoyed dinner and dancing in anticipation of a year of celebrating our wonderful hometown.
