YOUR REGION EDUCATION TEAM
IS HERE TO SERVE YOU
We sing, we dance, we learn, we meditate, we feed our souls and we share all this with our Hadassah women: we need YOU.
We are proud to say we are booked through April, 2015, but we are disappointed to report we are lacking volunteer chapters to complete the year. Please step up and say yes WE will.
Every Beat Counts
Our Regional Heart Health event was held on July 9 at Bethesda Hospital West. It was very well attended and we learned all about proper heart health: proper nutrition, exercise and the functions of the heart and how it works. Bethesda Hospital hosted a nutritious heart healthy breakfast.
This monthly Sunday morning class will begin its new season in October. Fran Sachs is our facilitator. It is open to our membership, and we meet at the Hadassah Office. Each year, an exciting subject is chosen and discussed. The class has an enrollment of 20, and can fit a few more. If interested please call us.
Check It Out
We have been unsuccessful in restarting our Check It Out high school program . It was not for lack of trying. Schools are burdened with “exams” and ensuring their students are ready for them, so a topic like breast health takes a back seat. As there are no longer Health courses in the Palm Beach Public Schools, it's a challenge to fit us in. We worked with the Board of Education, who loved the program and was happy to hear it was being reinstated, but even they couldn't open a door for us.
So we are planning another route: a letter has been prepared to send to local churches to ask them if they would like us to present our program. Do you know of a synagogue, youth group (teenagers) or club who would be interested in our presentation? Let us know and we will make the contacts.
We are still lacking the correct e-mail addresses for the education VPs of the some chapters. The addresses I have are coming back as undeliverable. We send out copies of the latest innovations at Hadassah Medical Organization, current Israeli news, and articles of the latest update of technology coming out of Israel.
