Call for volunteer readers!
In partnership with the Prince William Chamber of Commerce, we will be participating in National Young Readers Day on Nov. 14. All team members are welcome to volunteer their time to read to elementary school students in Manassas City Public Schools, Manassas Park City Schools and Prince William County Public Schools. The event will be held Tuesday, Nov. 14, from about 8 a.m. to noon. Please enter your requested school and time when you sign up here. Please sign up no later than 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10.
The goal is to provide coverage for nearly all public elementary schools in the greater City of Manassas, City of Manassas Park and Prince William County area. Readers generally consist of leaders in the business community, retirees and even local high school and college students.
Congratulations to our recipients of state department of aging and rehabilitation awards
Our team members were recently recognized at the Disability Employment Champions award luncheon hosted by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS). The award stems from Project SEARCH, hosted at Prince William Medical Center, a partnership with Didlake and Manassas City Public Schools. The team received the highest honor, called the “Champions in Making a Difference Continued Partnership Award,” and one of our teammates, Nekisha Hogan, received the “Champion in Professional Development Outstanding Participant Award.”
Kudos to Dawn Byrne for her leadership and to the entire team for exemplifying our organization’s people credo and values, most prominently diversity and inclusion, and teamwork.

Mark your calendar for this upcoming community event
Register to attend the upcoming free orthopedics seminar with A. Brion Gardner, MD, titled, “Rapid recovery: Learn your options for hip, knee and shoulder aches and pain.” When you have joint pain, the first thing to do is try nonsurgical treatments like medications, physical therapy and changes to your daily activities. If these do not relieve pain, it may be time for total joint replacement. The event will be held Nov. 15 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Prince William Medical Center in medical office building 1, fourth floor conference room A, 8650 Sudley Road, Manassas. Click here to learn more.
