Elizabeth City, NC — To commemorate February being Heart Health Month, Albemarle Hospital’s Community Health Nurse Pamela Etheridge, RN, BSN, will present “Body Check” at Port Discover’s Afterschool Science program on Thursday, February 24, from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Kids are invited to attend while we investigate ways to keep your body healthy. They will learn things from how to monitor their hearts to what to do in an emergency, and more.

“Body Check” is a part of Port Discover's Kinetic Kids programs made possible by a grant from University Health Systems Foundation and Albemarle Hospital Foundation. Afterschool Science is Port Discover’s free, interactive science program featuring a different and timely topic each month. Afterschool Science is made possible thanks to support from the City of Elizabeth City. No reservations are necessary for this event.
