DREXEL HILL, Sept. 17 – State Rep. Mike Zabel, D-Delaware, will host a Public Health Series to provide residents with a chance to listen to experts and ask questions during online events. The series is being conducted in conjunction with Child Guidance Resource Centers in Havertown and will feature experts from health organizations about specific topics in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
