Lunch & Learn

Presented by the Onslow Memorial Hospital Foundation.

Onslow Memorial Hospital is dedicated to providing the best care possible for our community, so we can be at our healthiest. Few things in life are as powerful as knowledge, and preventative medicine is often the best. In that regard, we are proud to launch our Lunch & Learn series: convenient, lunchtime talks and demonstrations around today’s important health and wellness topics, for free! Lunch will be provided.

The series is just one more way Onslow Memorial Hospital is helping the Jacksonville area keep it healthy.
