Assumption Regional Book Swap - Reading Across America

Assumption Regional Book Swap – Reading Across America

Read Across America is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2nd, Dr. Seuss’s Birthday.  Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing kids, teens, and books together.

Assumption Regional Catholic School invited The Galloway Patriot to cover their Read Across America Dr. Seuss event.  Children from grades PreK through second participated in various games all Dr. Seuss related.  Each child brought a book to school allowing each child the ability to swap their book for a different book.  Stations were set up giving the children the option to color, make “Cat in the Hat” hats to wear, have the Cat in the Hat whiskers painted on, balloons, match the sox, and pin the hat on the Cat in the Hat.  Every child in the room was happy and excited for the day’s events.

Atlanticare annual Red Dress event 2015

More than 250 guests attended AtlantiCare’s eighth annual Red Dress Reception, which took place February 12 at the Smithville Inn in Galloway. Event proceeds benefit the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center (ARMC) Heart Heroes.

Guests donned red in awareness of heart disease and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, vendor shopping, a photo booth and a raffle featuring goods and services from local businesses. 

“Women in particular need to be proactive in seeking medical attention when they are not feeling well,” said Howard Levite, MD, MBA, medical director of the Heart Institute at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, and director, Cardiac Catheterization Lab at ARMC’s Cardiac Catheterization and Rhythm Center. “Symptoms of a heart attack are often more subtle for women and may go unnoticed. Women need to put their own health needs on par with those of other family members.”

Levite encouraged guests to attend a yearly check-up with a primary care practitioner, and to know vital numbers, such as body mass index (BMI), cholesterol levels, sugar level and blood pressure. “Smoking cigarettes is linked to or causal for 26 diseases,” he added. “It greatly increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and peripheral arterial disease. One of the best things you can do for your health is to quit smoking.” 

The Heart Heroes volunteers raise funds for the Heart Institute at ARMC and the AtlantiCare Foundation to place Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in the community. AEDs can restore a normal heart rhythm in victims of sudden cardiac arrest. The Heart Heroes Program funds a portion of the AED cost. Community groups and/or organizations provide the remaining funds. Since 2002 the program has placed nearly 150 AEDs in the community to increase awareness about the importance of prompt care for heart attack.
