Ellsworth. Healthy Acadia and Friends in Action will offer a free MedlinePlus tutorial workshop from 1pm to 2pm on Thursday, May 12 in the theater room of the Moore Community Center, 133 State Street, Ellsworth. “We are excited to offer this free, interactive workshop to introduce community members to MedlinePlus. It’s an easy-to-use online resource that offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, on any device, for free,” said Nina Zeldin of Healthy Acadia, who will be facilitating the workshop.
