New website focuses on health and wellness
Tidelands Health has launched a new website meant to help people live better, healthier lives by providing engaging health news, wellness tips and expert medical advice.
MyCarolinaLife.com was developed to serve as a go-to source for residents of our region to find timely, trustworthy health information. The site features a broad and ever-increasing amount of content on the latest medical studies, health trends, wellness topics and even healthy recipe ideas.
Nearly all content on the site is free to republish for community groups, churches, homeowners’ associations, the media and other organizations. Visitors can sign up to receive the latest headlines through an e-newsletter delivered directly to their email inboxes.
“There’s a lot of interest in trusted health care information that's not only relevant and useful but also interesting and engaging,” said Amy Stevens, vice president of marketing and communications for Tidelands Health. “MyCarolinaLife.com provides that resource by leveraging the expertise and resources of our region’s largest health care provider.”
MyCarolinaLife.com readers can learn about a broad variety of topics such as heart care, diabetes, nutrition, cancer care, sports medicine and more. Entire sections of the site are devoted to women’s health, men’s health, children’s health and senior health, among others.
The MyCarolinaLife.com website is one of several new programs underway as part of the health system’s mission to help people live better lives through better health.
In August, the health system launched “Better for Life,” a free membership programed for people 50 and older. Enrollees benefit from invitations to health screenings and programs, special discounts from Tidelands Health and select community partners and exclusive access to a monthly e-newsletter and quarterly print magazine featuring health news and information.
People can sign up at tidelandshealth.org/betterforlife for free.
And in May, the health system kicked off “Walk With a Doc,” a free community walking program that takes place the second Saturday of every month in The Market Common community of Horry County. Each program begins at 9 a.m. with a brief presentation on a health topic from a Tidelands Health medical professional before participants enjoy a walk around the lake at Grand Park.
The event also features healthy snacks and blood pressure checks.
All members of the community are welcome to attend. The walks start in Pavilion A at the Grand Park Athletic Complex.
