What’s Happening Today – Oct. 23, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Healthcare and how it’s distributed and paid for has been a topic of debate for decades. No one seems to agree on the best way to keep everyone healthy and how to make sure everyone gets access to the latest advances in medicine. One thing that many can agree on and that preventative medicine goes a long way in combating disease. Preventative screening tests are important in keeping us healthy and we recently stopped by Peninsula Imaging to learn more.
According to the US Department of Labor, the construction industry is made up of around 90% men and 10% women which is a small fraction compared to other industries. We learn about a business right here on Delmarva that is defying those odds. The co-owner of DryZone took her passion for construction and turned it into a successful company that continues to grow each day.
Hermitage Eastern Shore is more than a retirement community. Sydney Whitfield recently stopped by Hermitage to hear all about their new respite program.
