What’s Happening Today – Oct. 31, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Many parents wake up with pain in their back and legs after carrying their kids around the day before, especially if they are not used to exercising. Chiropractor, Dr. Randal Horsley from the Wellness Junction in Millsboro, Del., tells us about how an adjustment could really help.
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month and here on Delmarva, Kent Sussex Industries, or KSI’s sole purpose is to assist people with disabilities in the pursuit of employment. Chief Executive Officer of KSI, Craig Crouch, tells us about what KSI does, who they serve, how they are changing lives and what the community can do to help.
