Achieving peak athletic performance begins with having the tools to reduce the risk of injury, train for success, follow the right nutrition plan, and focus both on the mental and physical components of reaching an athlete’s fullest potential. In February and March, EMMC Sports Health will help competitive athletes, weekend warriors, and everyone in between gain the knowledge to perform their best during a free educational series.
At a recent national webinar, Sue Devoe, RN, BSN, Director of Quality, Licensing and Accreditation at Northern Maine Medical Center (NMMC), and Sharon Berz, Director of Long Term Care at the Aroostook Area Agency on Aging (AAAA) were guest presenters to a national audience of peers on a partnership the two organizations created to support patients in the transition from hospital to home. Implemented nearly two years ago, the partnership of NMMC and AAAA was intended to improve the quality of life of patients, to assist them to thrive in their home and to reduce readmission to the hospital.
