Western Connecticut Health Network (WCHN) and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center (Connecticut Children’s) have launched a pediatric alliance to bring Connecticut Children’s prominent attributes and highly specialized pediatric health care to families throughout western Connecticut. Connecticut Children’s pediatric hospitalists and physician assistants (PAs) are now providing inpatient care for children at Danbury Hospital and Norwalk Hospital. Neonatologists will start caring for babies at each hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) this summer. This alliance will enhance quality outcomes and provide greater access to subspecialty pediatric care for families in the communities WCHN serves.

WCHN is now bringing an unprecedented level of specialized pediatric and neonatology care to its community hospitals by aligning with Connecticut Children’s, the only hospital in Connecticut dedicated exclusively to the care of children. Through the alliance, children and their families will have 24/7 access to readily available specialized and subspecialized pediatric services. Even more pediatric consultations will be available at Danbury Hospital and Norwalk Hospital emergency departments (EDs), ensuring best-in-class pediatric emergency care for young patients.

“Aligning with Connecticut Children’s exemplifies how WCHN is collaborating with leading healthcare experts to ensure we can offer the greatest care possible. Bringing Connecticut Children’s to our community hospitals enables us to deliver extraordinary pediatric care and achieve the best outcomes for every family and the children they cherish,” said John M. Murphy, MD, president and CEO of WCHN.

Two physician leaders from Connecticut Children’s and three WCHN providers have assumed new roles to lead local efforts at each hospital. This includes a Connecticut Children’s board-certified pediatric emergency medicine physician who will provide consultation to Danbury Hospital, New Milford Hospital, and Norwalk Hospital EDs. WCHN will adopt Connecticut Children’s standardized best practices to advance continuity of care. Family-centered care will also be introduced, where the entire care team rounds at the bedside with the patient’s family.

“We are looking forward to expanding our evidence-based, state-of-the-art care to families in western Connecticut. We are excited to align with WCHN and progress our mission to make children in Connecticut the healthiest in the country,” said Anand Sekaran, MD, division head of Hospital Medicine at Connecticut Children’s.

Pediatric patients will remain Danbury Hospital and Norwalk Hospital patients. They will have easy access to Connecticut Children’s main campus in Hartford if necessary. Pediatricians and family physicians can refer children to WCHN’s EDs for evaluation, care, and hospitalization. They may also contact the pediatric hospitalist team for direct admissions.

Ridgefield Library Author Talk with Wilton resident Anthony F. LoFrisco on Tuesday, January 30 at 7:00 PM
 
The LoFrisco Family Cookbook: How Josie Brought Sicily to Brooklyn with Anthony F. LoFrisco.
 
Please register
 
The LoFrisco Family Cookbook is part cookbook, part memoir. The author, son of Sicilian immigrants in the early 1900s, shares not only his mother's time-tested simple and delicious recipes, but he brings them to life by embracing them with endearing family stories of growing up in an Italian-American neighborhood in Brooklyn. 

LoFrisco intersperses recipes for such Italian classics as lasagna and chicken cacciatore with reminiscences of his childhood days, where food was always the center of attention and mama ruled the kitchen. 
 
A graduate of Fordham College and Fordham Law School, LoFrisco was a partner and litigator in several high energy law firms in Manhattan. His way of relaxing at home was to walk into the kitchen, put on an apron, turn on the oven and go to work. LoFrisco lives, and cooks, in Wilton, Connecticut.
 
Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.

Wilton Library’s art exhibition embraces couples opening Feb. 2 http://news.hamlethub.com/wilton/places/48052-wilton-library-s-art-exhibition-embraces-couples-opening-feb-248052-wilton-library-s-art-exhibition-embraces-couples-opening-feb-2 http://news.hamlethub.com/wilton/places/48052-wilton-library-s-art-exhibition-embraces-couples-opening-feb-248052-wilton-library-s-art-exhibition-embraces-couples-opening-feb-2

Finding something in which two people have a shared interest oftentimes makes for a solid foundation.  That appears to be true for two couples who share their love of art in Wilton Library’s upcoming art exhibition, “A Couple of Couples—Paintings and Photography,” opening Friday, Feb. 2, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.  Julie Leff and Charles Douthat, artists from Weston, and Leona and Richard Frank of Westport, artist and photographer respectively, will be showcasing more than 60 of their works in the exhibition that runs through February 23. Their talents are on display in a variety of media including oil, acrylic, charcoal drawings and photography with subject matter encompassing portraits, still life, abstracts, botanicals, landscapes and more.

Ed MacEwen, Wilton Library’s art chairman, said of the pairings, “I had seen the talent of Julie and Leona on separate occasions, and was aware of the Franks’ time as Weir Farm artists-in-residence.  When I heard that there was a fourth artist in Charles, I just knew that this exhibition had to come together in this way.”

Julie Leff, a graduate of Yale University, began painting professionally in 2001.  Since then, her work has appeared in numerous solo and group shows in New York and Connecticut.  Her artwork is held in many private collections in the US, Europe and Asia.  Her medium is oil paint on canvas and subjects are primarily florals, still lifes, abstracts, and portraits. She noted about her work, “I paint for myself, for my love of color and form, but in a way that invites others to discover the beauty I see in the world.”  To view her work, visit www.julieleff.com.

Charles Douthat is a graduate of Stanford University and the University of California, Charles is a self-taught painter who works within the traditions of abstract expressionism and lyrical abstraction.  He paints in acrylics, usually on canvas, but sometimes on recycled surfaces. Of his work, he said, “I never know where I’m going or what I’m looking for; I’m simply trying to make marks on canvas that strike me as moving or beautiful or full of potential.”

Leona Frank is a painter who also teaches art in her Westport studio.  Her award-winning acrylic paintings are in numerous public and private collections. Her latest energy has been applied to her Flowerscapes, which focus on the insistent and vibrant flowers she observed at Weir Farm, the National Historic Site in Wilton where she and her husband, Richard Frank, were collaborative Artists-in-Residence in July, 2012. During the month-long residency at Weir Farm, Leona and Dick spent valuable time sharing ideas for new directions in their respective work. A unique aspect of Leona’s work is the challenge of creating art on the diminutive 2”x 2” format of an iPhone screen, as well as the limitation of the given tools in the Notes program.  Her many years of experience as a professional calligrapher provide familiarity with small-scale work. She remarked, “Whether I am painting or drawing, the act of drawing consistently plays an important role in my work. It is through drawing that I learn to understand my subjects.”  Leona has a B.A in Studio Art from Queens College, New York and an M.S. in Art Education from Southern CT State University. She is a member of National Association of Women Artists, Connecticut Women Artists and New Haven Paint & Clay Club, where she was one of five members selected for a solo exhibit. Leona’s work can be seen on her website, www.leonafrank.com

Richard Frank began photography at the age of twenty-two, when he enrolled in Sheldon Brody’s photography class at Queens College.  That class became the catalyst for his interest in “pursuing the discipline of observation and technical knowledge needed to do meaningful and high quality work.” The American social landscape and portraiture became his preferred subjects. Dick worked as a free-lance photographer, specializing in people on location, for over forty years.  He is known for his ability to depict his subjects in a natural and authentic style.  Dick has done assignments for national magazines, including Fortune, Money, Sports Illustrated, Life, New York Magazine, New York Times Magazine, Car & Driver, Esquire and Audubon Magazine.  Dick continues to challenge himself with visual ideas and content, and according to him, he’s “always looking.”

The reception is free and open to the public.  A majority of the works will be available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the library. The media sponsor is The Wilton Bulletin. Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Road in the heart of Wilton Center. The library is open Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays, 1 to 5 p.m. The library will be closed on February 19 for Presidents’ Day.  For information and directions, visit www.wiltonlibrary.org or call 203-762-6334.

Norwalk's Remarkable Hill Sisters and the Struggle For Equality http://news.hamlethub.com/wilton/life/48051-norwalk-s-remarkable-hill-sisters-151664359548051-norwalk-s-remarkable-hill-sisters-1516643595 http://news.hamlethub.com/wilton/life/48051-norwalk-s-remarkable-hill-sisters-151664359548051-norwalk-s-remarkable-hill-sisters-1516643595

In celebration of Women's History Month, the Norwalk Historical Society will be presenting a new lecture entitled: “Norwalk’s Remarkable Hill Sisters and the Struggle for Equality” by local educator and researcher Alice Warren on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 2:00pm at the Norwalk Historical Society Museum. 141 East Avenue, Norwalk, CT. Learn how three sisters from Norwalk, CT – Clara Mossman Hill, Helena Hill Weed, and Elsie Mary Hill – struggled for suffrage and women’s rights during the 20th century.  Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased at here or 203-846-0525.

Please note that the lecture will take place upstairs and seating is limited.  Purchasing in advance is highly recommended.  Parking is available at Norwalk City Hall, 125 East Avenue.  The museum is in the red brick house with blue double front doors, next to the Norwalk Health Dept.  If there is inclement weather, the lecture will be rescheduled for Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 2:00pm.

Norwalk’s Hill Sisters, daughters of a U.S. congressman, worked tirelessly for the passage and ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, crisscrossing the country giving lectures, organizing marches, and even going to jail after picketing the White House during the First World War.  After ratification in 1920, the Hills continued to fight for feminist causes during the post-suffrage decades, when many historians contended that women had lost interest in issues of civil and economic rights.  This illustrated 45-minute talk will introduce you to these remarkable women, whose advocacy for full equality helped sustain movement goals and tactics for future generations of feminists.

About Alice Warren
Alice Warren teaches 8th grade U.S. history at Fairfield Woods Middle School. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Mount Holyoke College and a master’s degree in Women’s Studies at Southern Connecticut State University, with a focus on women’s history. While in that graduate program, she became involved with the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, first researching and rewriting the biographies of the original inductees, and now serves on the Hall of Fame’s Consulting Scholar Committee. Ms. Warren’s thesis about the Hill sisters was the result of her deep interest in the contributions made by Connecticut women to the causes of social justice and equal rights.

Wilton Historical Society hosts Birds of Winter Workshop for kids on Saturday, January 20, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

American robins, the state bird of Connecticut, have not yet returned from warmer climes, but other species are in our area, surviving the snow and cold.

At this Birds of Winter Workshop for Kids, Educator Lola Chen will be discussing what birds are in the area for the winter, information that is gathered by the National Audubon Society at its annual Christmas Bird Count. She will share the history of the Audubon Society, while the kids work on a useful project – making a bird feeder with grapevine and suet for our feathered friends. The children will help make their own snack.

Suggested for ages 6 – 12. Wilton Historical Society Members $10 per child, maximum $25 per family; Non-members $15 per child, maximum $35 per family. Please register: info@wiltonhistorical.org or call 203-762-7257.

Love and Support for Mallozzi Family of New Canaan http://news.hamlethub.com/wilton/neighbors/48038-community-rallies-behind-mallozzi-family-donations-pouring-in-151629415648038-community-rallies-behind-mallozzi-family-donations-pouring-in-1516294156 http://news.hamlethub.com/wilton/neighbors/48038-community-rallies-behind-mallozzi-family-donations-pouring-in-151629415648038-community-rallies-behind-mallozzi-family-donations-pouring-in-1516294156

Nico Mallozzi Memorial Fund

In the wake of the tragic death of ten-year-old Nico Mallozzi that rocked New Canaan and Roughriders Hockey Team, a Go Fund Me page has been set up on behalf of the Mallozzi family by Nico's fellow hockey teammates and coaches. 

The page has been shared by nearly 6,000 people and to date, $148,328.00 has been raised for the family. 

Visit the page here.

The page reads:

The Mallozzi family has just encountered a loss that no family should ever have to endure.  Please join us in helping support the family as they cope with their unimaginable grief.  

One of Nico's coaches described him best:  Nico's sly little smile and charm have captivated, entertained and kept us on our toes.  Our rink won't be the same without him.  Nico was an amazing player, teammate, and friend.... not to mention, a bit of jokester with a trademark smile.  

Our hockey family is ready to rally around the Mallozzi family....as the rest of the 2007 Roughriders have been saying #NicoStrong.  Each and every teammate will miss you dearly! Not to mention the parents that were often drafted to help lace up your skates over the years....we all wish we could help him lace them up one more time!

Visit the page, show your support by making a donation, and/or leave some comforting words for the Mallozzi family.
