The Ocean Pines Association and Peninsula Regional Medical Center introduced the premiere of the Live Well Academy, a free, year-long lecture series on a wide range of health care topics.

The lectures will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every month at the Ocean Pines Community Center, 235 Ocean Parkway, Ocean Pines, Maryland. An exception is the January lecture, which will be held on the second Wednesday.

“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 Kathryn Fiddler, vice president of population health. “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.”

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.
