LEWISTON — Central Maine Medical Center’s Trauma Program, a community provider, is partnering with Healthy Living for ME to bring chronic disease and falls prevention programs to the local community.

Offered for free or at a low cost, these evidence-based workshops help Mainers improve their overall quality of life and reduce trauma-related injuries, according to a news release from Healthy Living for ME.

The trauma program has already been working with Healthy Living for ME to provide certain programming, but a newly formalized arrangement will allow them to expand their offerings and make a greater impact in the community.

“We are so pleased to strengthen our partnership with Healthy Living for ME and increase our reach through becoming part of their statewide network. As a community provider through the network, we’ll be able to help more Mainers as we expand our programming that is aimed at decreasing traumas related to falls and chronic disease,” said June Turcotte, injury prevention coordinator of the trauma program.

“Our partnerships help us reach all corners of the state with programming and resources, and we’re very glad to have CMMC’s Trauma Program join us as a formal partner in the Healthy Living for ME network. We’re excited to see the positive impact this partnership will have on Mainers’ health and wellness,” said Maija Dyke, business manager of Healthy Living for ME.
