Now You Know



Inspired by the popular TED Talks that have piqued public interest in recent years, two Mahoning County entities are teaming up to bring a similar concept to the area that will focus on Family, Health and Lifestyle topics. Beginning in September, Meridian HealthCare and the Library will present monthly “Now You Know” talks at various Library branches. The 45-minute talks will feature experts in their fields who can speak to prominent issues facing families and individuals today. The talks will be followed by a Question and Answer period. For more information about the program, contact Renee Amacher of Meridian at (330) 259-8623.
