UM Charles Regional Medical Center at the Inaugural Healthcare Resource Fair in Bryans Road, Maryland

News Release, UM Charles Regional Medical Center

On Wednesday, July 17, the Access to Care Coalition (part of Partnerships for a Healthier Charles County) hosted a Healthcare Resource Fair in western Charles County.

The Fair brought information on health resources into the community with the goal of increasing the health literacy of the attendees that visited the event. Nurse Navigator, Teri White (left) delighted in sharing programs that are offered at UM Charles Regional Medical Center and joined Manager of Population Health, Mary Hannah (center in white shirt), in checking blood pressure for those attendees that chose to have this screening.

The event was a huge success with over 70 attendees, 25 agencies represented and free Rita’s ice courtesy of the hospital. This partnership is one important way that UM Charles Regional Medical Center supports the health needs of its community. 

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
