News Journal

WILMINGTON — Promoting safe work environments is of key importance to the Wilmington-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce. That’s why they have partnered with Clinton Memorial Hospital and the businesses of the Wilmington College Center for Sport Sciences (CSS) — Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine; Rohlfs Chiropractic Care; and Drayer Physical Therapy Institute — to bring you an “Occupational Health, Wellness & Safety” Lunch & Learn series.

The series is targeted to local businesses and features a range of topics to enhance the health, wellness, and safety of your employees.

The next session is Thursday, Aug. 4 and the featured topic is “Wound Treatment for Workplace Injuries.” Dr. Ronald Pedalino, general surgeon and Director of the Wound Treatment Center at CMH, and Jan Schumacher, a certified wound ostomy nurse, will discuss wound treatment for workplace injuries. They’ll cover costs and incidences of the average wound, immediate care for wounds at workplaces with and without on-site nurses or clinics, and how to proceed with non-healing wounds.

The final session will be held on Thursday, Aug. 11, and the featured topic is “The Industrial Athlete: A Gameplan For Injury Prevention.” This presentation will feature a demonstration and discussion of preventative strategies for management of work place injuries and introduction to programs designed to help keep workers pain free. This topic will be presented by Rohlfs Chiropractic Care and Drayer Physical Therapy Institute.

Safety is of utmost importance at all levels and these workshops will be targeted to businesses of all sizes — from one employee to 500. Workshops will be held noon-1 p.m. in the Center for Sport Sciences, 720 Elm St., on the Wilmington College Campus.
