Breast cancer patients at Putnam Hospital Center now have an opportunity to be treated holistically with the opening this month of the medical center’s Integrative Health suite.

The complimentary program provides alternative therapies to patients as they undergo surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. The hospital has contracted with Liberation Yoga of Mahopac to bring an array of services including yoga classes, massage therapy, reiki, reflexology and meditation. 

“This new program enables us to provide whole mind and body care to the patients that need it the most,” said Maureen Pace, Putnam Hospital Center’s director of clinical services.

Dr. Lyda Rojas, breast surgeon and medical director of the breast cancer program at Putnam Hospital Center, and Dr. Vinita Agarwal, chief of pathology at Putnam Hospital Center, both on the hospital’s medical staff, cut the ribbon this week on the Integrative Health program located on the hospital campus in suite 114. The suite has a yoga studio and two rooms for therapeutic services. Nutritional counseling and lymphedema treatments are also housed in the suite.

The opening of Integrative Health comes on the heels of the hospital’s accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons and only granted to centers committed to providing the highest level of quality breast care to its patients.

Radiology at Putnam Hospital Center also now provides patients with 3-D mammography, a more accurate breast screening technology.  

To learn more about the Integrative Health program, please call 845-628-0007. For more information on breast care at Putnam Hospital Center, please visit https://www.healthquest.org/cancer/breast-cancer-putnam-hospital-center.aspx

Allegations under investigation at Brewster Schools http://news.hamlethub.com/brewster/publicsafety/5709-allegations-under-investigation-at-brewster-schools5709-allegations-under-investigation-at-brewster-schools http://news.hamlethub.com/brewster/publicsafety/5709-allegations-under-investigation-at-brewster-schools5709-allegations-under-investigation-at-brewster-schools

The following letter was released on October 18, 2017 by the Superintendent of Schools.

Dear Parents,

On Thursday, Oct. 12, the Brewster Central School District was informed about an alleged inappropriate relationship between a staff member and a highschool student. Student safety is of paramount importance and we find these allegations deeply troubling. The administration immediately contacted law enforcement, which began an investigation. At this time, the matter is still being investigated by law enforcement. While the investigation is pending, the staff member will not have any contact with students.  The District has arranged for school counselors to be available to support students should the need arise. Additionally, in conjunction with the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department, the District has established a 24 hour hotline for anyone who has information to share with respect to this matter. The 24 hour hotline number is 845-808-4377.

Sincerely,

Valerie Henning-Piedmonte, Ed.D.

In addition the following letter was release earlier today, October 19th:

October 19, 2017
Dear Parents and Guardians,

Each of our schools will initiate “Lockout” procedures to protect our students and staff from exposure to potential media coverage. A “Lockout” is used to secure school buildings and grounds during incidents that pose an imminent concern outside of the school.

We notified each school, cancelled outdoor physical education classes and recess to be cautious. Before children can return to outside activities, our School Resource Officers will monitor the grounds to make sure that they are safe.

Sincerely,
Valerie Henning-Piedmonte

McSweeney performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival with Claire Daly and the Baritone Monk Band, which was rated in the top ten on jazz radio in the USA.

Reviewing her "Thoughts of You" CD, Glenn Astarita in all.about.jazz: 'Jazz bassist Mary Ann McSweeney possesses a smooth touch, conveying a warm, organic tone... her sextet expounds upon the primary theme via a mid tempo swing.... a good, tasteful recording brimming with tight arrangements and sonorous exchanges.'

Along with being a full-time professional bassist in New York City, McSweeney is on the faculty for the Middle School Jazz Academy at Lincoln Center and the New York Jazz Workshop. McSweeney has played more than 35 Broadway shows, including Tony award winning “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.”

This summer she performed in Greece and Berlin with her Urban Fado project. In her words: "My great great Grandparents are from Portugal, where this music originated in the 1800's; the sadness, the sigh of the voice, the story of fate told by the singer inspired me to compose music that is Fado, bringing new grooves and new chord structures to the Fado form; keeping the traditional form but leaving room for improvisation; sharing the cultural diversity it has to offer."
