Life can get hectic. With so many things to juggle, it can be hard to remember that doctors appointment or to manage your medicines. Peninsula Regional Medical Center is changing this, with a little help, and making it a little easier to keep your health in check. Vice President of the Peninsula Regional Medical Group and medical director of the Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute, Dr. Thomas DeMarco, joins us alongside Jennifer Lux, co-founder and director of client experience of CareSync, come in to speak to us about how CareSync is teaming up with PRMC to provide benefits to patients of the hospital. They also talk about who is eligible for the program, what services CareSync provides, and how to take advantage of the service.
Every Friday, DelmarvaLife features furry friends of the area that are looking for a forever home. But, we know that families across the peninsula may not be in a position to adopt, but want a way to help these sweet animals. So, WBOC and Sherwood Automotive are teaming up again to help meet that need. Owner of Sherwood Automotive, Bruce Rogers, as well as the shelter manager of the Humane Society of Wicomico County, Siobhan Wyatt join us today to talk about the Rising Tide event, what items they hope to see the community bring, and how the donations benefit the shelter.
In just about two months, the school year will be nearing its end. With summer just around the corner, you may be thinking about how it is you’ll keep your children active during the long break. Missy Denault, executive director of the Dorchester County YMCA, comes in today to talk about the many summer camps they will be offering, the benefits of enrolling your children in summer camp, and when parents can sign their child up.
Alice in Wonderland is a classic Disney tale about a girl who falls into a rabbit hole, only to be transported to a magical world. Today on DelmarvaLife, we see a new spin on the old classic as we welcome the Eastern Shore Ballet Theatre to the show bringing the art of dance to the cartoon classic. Kim Carey, secretary for the Eastern Shore Ballet Theatre, brings along two dancers today to chat about the theatre, how to get involved with them, and how they are preparing for their big show. Be sure to tune in to see the dancers perform a scene from their upcoming performance. The Eastern Shore Ballet Theatre will be performing Alice in Wonderland Friday, April 6th at 7 pm and Saturday, April 7th at 2 pm. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here!
