What’s Happening Today – Friday, October 14, 2016
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Losing a child has to be one of the most unbearable heartaches a person can endure. Today, we’re honoring those precious lives. It’s part of Peninsula Regional Medical Center‘s “Special Treasures are Remembered” (STAR) program. The program also supports the families going through such tragedies. PRMC is holding a STAR Remembrance Walk. It takes place Saturday, October 15th at the Avery W. Hall Educational Center Auditorium. The walk starts at 2 p.m., and will include guided tours of the new STAR Memorial Room at PRMC, a quiet place to honor the young lives lost.
If you could play a role in saving lives from this country’s number one and number five killers, heart disease and stroke, would you do it? You can. It’s as simple as taking part in the American Heart Association‘s Southern Delaware Heart Walks. Money raised from the walks is used to help save lives. The first Southern Delaware Heart Walk takes place AT 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 15th at the Delaware Technical Community (DTCC) College Owens Campus in Georgetown. The second Southern Delaware Heart Walk takes place on Saturday, October 22nd at DTCC’s Terry Campus in Dover. That walk also takes place at 9 a.m.
It’s been proven that pets can help the heart by helping to lower blood pressure and lessen anxiety. We introduce you to several cats and dogs on Delmarva that are looking for a home.
-“O’Henry”, an 11-week-old pit bull mix is at the Humane Society of Wicomico County in Salisbury. He is sweet and playful.
-“Itty Bit” is also at the Humane Society of Wicomico County. She’s a three-year-old Maltese.
-“Meeko” is at the Humane Society of Wicomico County. She’s a one-year-old, spayed, domestic short hair.
-Wicomico Humane is also where you’ll find “Octave,” a five-month-old domestic short hair.
-“Sparkle” is also at Delaware SPCA. She is a 3-to-4-year-old mixed breed.
When you think about how health care has changed over the past five decades, it’s almost mind boggling. The advancements in technology, the new discoveries – we’ve come a long way. All that progress has required many hospitals to grow and change, but there sometimes comes a point where a health care facility has to be re-imagined. After all, many were first built decades ago. That’s what’s happening in Milford. Bayhealth recently broke ground on an innovative health campus project that will include an inpatient hospital with state-of-the-art technology, patient-friendly access, and all private rooms designed around patients’ needs. So how are they doing it? With lots and lots of practice. Today, we see how it all starts with a cardboard city.
We are also letting loose today and kicking off the weekend with The Scott Bloodsworth Band. The band will perform two original songs, both written by Scott Bloodsworth, “Music Man,” and “Let the Love Roll In.”
We also celebrate Lisa’s big milestone birthday. The big 5-0! Happy birthday, Lisa!
