Orange Park Medical Center announces new partnership with area non-profit that specializes in education for seniors. The hospital recently joined Shepherd's Center of Orange Park (SCOOP) to offer weekly educational classes to its members. Orange Park Medical Center will be providing physician experts, screenings and a wide-variety of education on age relevant healthcare topics as part of their 8-week series, "Adventures in Learning", that will take place 4 times a year.
"We are excited for this new venture with SCOOP. With exposure to their over 600 members we feel that we can make a great impact to the health of seniors in Clay County. We look forward to the coming months as we grow the program together", said Belinda Ganey, Community Relations Liaison with Orange Park Medical Center.
The classes are located at United Methodist Church in Orange Park every Monday 9:00am - 3:15 pm and are open to all active adults in NE Florida. Additional non-health related topics are also included in the Adventures in Learning program. To become a member of SCOOP call (904) 269-5315 or visit www.tscoop.org.
As an added perk of the partnership, volunteers at Orange Park Medical Center will receive a free membership to SCOOP and the option to attend all education classes.
