BANGOR The Eastern Maine Medical Center Auxilary will be holding their 10th Annual Winter Beach Ball at the Cross Insurance Center on March 4, from 7 to 11 p.m. The evening will be filled with the music from the Bob Charest Band, and there will be a cash bar and light refreshments. Beach attire is encouraged.

'We're pretty excited. Typically we get around 500 people. You're really going to need to get your tickets early - we're expecting to sell out,' said Kelli Roy, the Winter Beach ball Committee chair for 2016.

HAMPDEN Primary care is the foundation for maintaining a healthy community, and there are many children who may not have regular access to a primary care provider. Recognizing this issue, leaders at Eastern Maine Medical Center and RSU 22 came together to create the RSU 22 School-Based Health Center. The center is a place where students can be seen for health concerns, while staying right at Hampden Academy.

"This initiative stems from a need that RSU 22 staff members were seeing,' says James Raczek, MD, FAAFP, EMMC senior vice president and chief medical officer. 'Upon being seen, our providers will work with the patient's primary care providers to ensure the visit is entered into their medical records. It's a real benefit to the students, their parents and the community.'

BANGOR - Eastern Maine Medical Center is quickly becoming one of the most popular hospital sites among medical students looking for locations to fulfill their rotation requirements. Just ask Mary Blish, EMMC's enthusiastic clinical education specialist.

"We do what is called a showcase at the University of New England [each year]. It's for students looking for rotations in the next year. Every clinical site is down there and we all get a certain amount of time to talk about our location. I always like to be different and stand out," explained Blish.
