Certificate of Appreciation

September 6, 2017

We are so proud to announce that we partnered with Catie’s Closet in August 2017 during their Fill The Bus Clothing and Toiletry Drive to collect clothing and toiletries for kids in need. We also encourage everyone to follow Catie’s Closet to stay informed of their current needs. Schools equipped with a Catie’s Closet give students living in poverty the ability to discreetly pick and choose the clothing and basic necessities they need, and are proud to wear. Lack of access to basic necessities is one of the top reasons for absenteeism. By meeting students’ needs, Catie’s Closet boosts self esteem and motivates students to attend school and focus on their education.

Every little bit helps- make a donation now

Today it is widely recognized that there are many reasons to screen for cognitive impairment, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease beginning at age 65. Considerations include:

  1. Early dementia-especially Alzheimer’s disease is easily missed. Early dementia, including mild cognitive impairment is a subtle problem. Family members often avoid the problem and compensate the individual.
  2. Physicians tend to miss the initial signs and symptoms, so about 90 % of Alzheimer’s cases are missed early , and many individuals who have Alzheimer’s are never recognized as having the disease.
  3. Diagnoses are still missed at moderate and severe levels, and estimates are that 25 to 50 % of cases remain undiagnosed.
  4. Screening may lead to better care.
  5. Early detection can inform caregiver education and help caregivers better understand the symptoms and behaviors of individuals in their care.
  6. Early preparation can can reduce family stress and misunderstanding, caregiver burden, blame and denial.
  7. Early awareness of the problem of dementia may help those most involved to promote advocacy for research for a treatment and a cure.

ActivMed gives free memory screenings at two of our research sites, call for an appointment and more information. Methuen, Ma. 978-655-7155, ask for Ashley or Deepa Portsmouth, NH 603-319-8863, ask

Nutrition articles stress the importance of following a strict diet in order to control bouts of acne, but is this really true? Many resources attribute refined carbohydrates, dairy, and saturated fats to acne. The thought is that Americans have become accustomed to a diet lacking low glycemic index foods (ie. processed foods), which in turn spikes insulin levels and causes an increase in sebum production. This sebum production can then clog pores often on the face, chest, and back, resulting in acne. In 2013, a research study published in the American Academy of Dermatology showed a strong correlation between acne and diet. The article highlighted research based studies that primarily focused on glycemic index and blood sugar. In particular, a study of Australian males who followed a strict low glyacne-and-dietcemic diet experienced significant improvement in the severity of their acne after following a diet of low glycemic index foods. The results were not surprising and seemed to follow established stereotypes. However, they also had significant weight loss during the study. Did the diet itself cause the improvement in acne, or was it the weight loss? Or was it something else altogether? It is hard to pin poin
