Living Room Series
The Living Room Series is a unique way for people to connect with various providers and specialists to learn more about a wide array of health-related topics. The FREE programs are held on the DCMC campus throughout the year and vary in subjects such as “Menopause Mania” or “Mindful Eating” as well as “ADHD in Children”, to topics focusing on integrative medicine practices such as Craniosacral Therapy. Participants can gain first-hand knowledge from DCMC providers, engage in discussion, and do so while enjoying a comfortable, home-like atmosphere with complementary snacks and beverages.
Stroke Support Group
The Stroke Support group typically meets the third Thursday of each month at various locations in the Sturgeon Bay area. Family and/or friends are welcome to attend to talk with providers and other staff who are experienced with patients who’ve experienced a stroke and all of the changes that brings to one’s life.
