Hunterdon Healthcare Will Have Surgical Robot at Rotary Club of Flemington’s Pancake Day and Kid’s Expo
     Want to meet a robot? Hunterdon Healthcare will be hosting a demonstration of the daVinci Robot at the 40th Annual Rotary Club of Flemington’s Pancake Day and Kid’s Expo which will be held on Saturday, November 1st from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Hunterdon Central Regional High School. Attendees will be able to interact with the robot and observe demonstrations by Propa Ghosh, M.D., Urologist and Medical Director of Robotic Surgical Services at Hunterdon Medical Center.
     Hunterdon Medical Center is now offering patients looking for minimally invasive surgery a new approach using the da Vinci Surgical System. The da Vinci® Surgical System is robotic surgery technology, which surgeons control from a console. Instead of a large abdominal incision used in open surgery, a surgeon using the da Vinci® Surgical System makes a few small incisions where the surgical instruments and a miniature camera are introduced into the body. A monitor on the console allows the surgeon to see highly magnified, three dimensional images of the body as the surgeon directs the robotic arm movements to manipulate the camera and special instruments. Safety mechanisms are in place to ensure the robot only moves under the control of the surgeon.
     For the past month, Hunterdon Healthcare has been hosting a contest for kids in Kindergarten-grade 4 to name the robot and describe why the name was chosen. On October 20th the names were posted to Hunterdon Healthcare’s facebook page where people can vote for their favorite name. The contest will close on October 30th and the winning name will be announced at the Rotary Pancake Day on November 1st.
     Pancake Day and the Kid’s Expo will be held at Hunterdon Central Regional High School Commons, next to the Field House, 29 Junction Rd., Flemington. Attendees can purchase tickets for Pancake Day at the door. Adults are $7, Children 5-11 are $4 and children under 5 are no charge. Proceeds benefit Flemington Rotary’s charitable projects which include, scholarships for Hunterdon Central Regional High School and Hunterdon Central Polytech graduating seniors. For more information on Pancake Day and Kid’s Expo visit, www.flemingtonrotarynj.org

Under the Dome at Jack Cust Baseball Academy

     Hunterdon Medical Center Foundation will host its 34th Annual Crystal Ball on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at 6:30 PM at the Jack Cust Baseball Academy in Flemington, NJ. The dome that covers the baseball academy during the winter months will be transformed into an elegant ballroom. Titled “The Black and White Masquerade”, this year’s Crystal Ball proceeds, once again, will support Hunterdon Healthcare and its charitable medical mission.
      The Crystal Ball also enables the Hunterdon Healthcare System to honor those individuals who have made significant contributions toward the improvement of health in partnership with the organization or the community. This year the “Spirit of Hunterdon” crystal obelisk will be awarded to three individuals. They are Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns III; Hunterdon County resident and Bristol-Myers Squibb employee, Mark Peters, Pharm D; and Karen Kallens, RN, former Hunterdon County Medication Access Program Coordinator. “This year’s honorees were instrumental in introducing lifesaving medication access programs for Hunterdon County residents that have become models for the rest of the State”, stated Robert Wise, President and CEO, Hunterdon Healthcare.
     The event will begin with an open bar cocktail reception where guests will have a chance to mingle, and bid in the silent auction, while enjoying the evening. The cocktail reception will be followed by a lavish farm to table menu in the Grand Ballroom and an evening of dancing. “We decided to host the event locally to draw attention to the cultural richness of the Hunterdon County community as well as to celebrate Hunterdon Healthcare’s pledge to provide quality healthcare close to home,” stated Christopher Sickels, Executive Vice President, Hunterdon Medical Center Foundation and Senior Vice President, Community Affairs.
     The Hunterdon Medical Center Foundation, the fundraising organization for Hunterdon Healthcare, seeks gifts and grants from individuals, corporations, foundations and other sources to assist the Hunterdon Medical Center and its affiliated non-profit organizations.

Hunterdon Health and Wellness Center in Clinton Will Offer Program On Treating Hemorrhoids
     The Hunterdon Health and Wellness Centers in Whitehouse Station and Clinton are dedicated to providing health enhancement and disease prevention programs for the community. As part of their education series, the Hunterdon Health and Wellness Centers will hold a program called HET: Treatment for Internal Hemorrhoids at the Clinton campus on Monday, November 17th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
     Seventy five percent of all people have symptomatic hemorrhoids at some point in their lives and 50% of people over the age of 50 suffer from chronic, progressively worsening hemorrhoidal problems. Historically, hemorrhoid sufferers have been treated with a rubber banding procedure which can cause pain and discomfort after the treatment. The HET system is a small, sterile, disposable cannula that applies a combination of gentle tissue compression and mild heat to significantly shrink internal hemorrhoids.
     Gastroenterologist, Jeffrey Hartford, M.D., Advanced Gastroenterology and Nutrition, will lead this program on the HET system and discuss options for treating internal hemorrhoids. This is an opportunity to bring your questions and get them answered by Dr. Hartford.
     This program is free and open to the community. Participants will receive a guest pass to be used at either of the Hunterdon Health and Wellness Centers.
     To register for the program at the Hunterdon Health and Wellness Center in Clinton call 908-735-6884. The Hunterdon Health and Wellness Center in Clinton is located at 1738 Rte. 31, Clinton, New Jersey.

She is a faculty member of Artworks in Trenton, NJ and has held summer workshops at the Ocean City Arts Center and plain air workshops in both Beaufort SC and Chimay NM. She is a member of the Artist's Gallery in Lambertville, NJ and is represented at the Canal Frame - Crafts Gallery in Washington Crossing, PA and the Famsworth Gallery in Bordentown, NJ.
