(Nov. 2, 2018) The Ocean Pines Association and Peninsula Regional Medical Center introduce the premiere of the Live Well Academy, a free year-long lecture series on a wide range of healthcare topics.

The lectures will be held on the first Wednesday of every month (except for the January lecture, which will be held on the second Wednesday) from 3-4 p.m. at the Ocean Pines Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway.

“At Peninsula Regional Medical Center, we believe health literacy is extremely important, and so we’re excited to get into our communities and educate our patients about health and wellness,” said Dr. Kathryn Fiddler, MS, RN, NE-BC, vice president of Population Health at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

“By partnering with the Ocean Pines Association for this year-long lecture series, we are giving residents a unique opportunity to discuss their health concerns with some of the region’s most experienced healthcare providers,” she added.

Peninsula Regional Medical Center, located in Salisbury, provides community health services through a network of family medicine and specialty care offices including the Delmarva Health Pavilion Ocean Pines, home to the Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute, a 20,000-square-foot facility located outside the north gate.
