Outer Banks Hospital Events:
Partners of the Get Pinked! campaign pledge to raise $1,000 or more between September to the end of October. Any organization, group or business may become a “Pink Partner.” Groups raise monies in numerous ways - from bake sales to yard sales; one group even sold fall chrysanthemums this year. Businesses may donate a portion of their sales to the cause and one boutique puts on a five-star fashion show every spring. The “Pink Possibilities” are endless!
The American Lung Association in North Carolina in partnership with The Outer Banks Hospital offers the Better Breathers Club. The Club meets monthly at 4 pm, at The Outer Banks Hospital Medical Office Building/Starboard Educational Suite for one hour sessions to provide support, education, and social networking for people with lung disease, their family members and caregivers.
The Outer Banks Hospital staff and community health professionals will provide members with information on nutrition, breathing exercises, and treatment options that are available to help patients live a more comfortable life.
