MAY is AWARENESS MONTH FOR ALS AND MENTAL HEALTH!

MAY IS AWARENESS MONTH FOR ALS (AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS) AND MENTAL HEALTH!!

ALS

Quick Facts about ALS

**Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord. When these cells die, voluntary muscle control and movement dies with them. Patients in the later stages of the disease are totally paralyzed, yet in most cases, their minds remain sharp and alert.
**Every day, an average of 15 people are newly diagnosed with ALS — more than 5,600 people per year. As many as 30,000 Americans may currently be affected by ALS. Annually, ALS is responsible for two deaths per 100,000 people.
**The average life expectancy of a person with ALS is two to five years from time of diagnosis. With recent advances in research and improved medical care, many patients are living longer, more productive lives. Half of all those affected live at least three years or more after diagnosis. About 20 percent live five years or more, and up to ten percent will survive more than ten years.
**ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries. ALS can strike anyone. Every single American is threatened by this disease.

The details regarding the scholarship are below:

This scholarship is presented by Stony Brook University in memory of Debbie Whittemore, former Athletic Training Student and Intramural Program Employee. She was an exceptional student during her college years, 1987 to 1994, as well as a committed intramural employee and dedicated student athletic trainer.

Tragically, we lost Debbie during the summer of 1994 in a senseless car crash, as she was yet another victim of a drunken driver. She has left us far too soon. For those of us that knew her, it is an inconceivable and devastating loss. Just two days before her death, she began her career as a nurse at Stony Brook University Hospital. She would have been a wonderful nurse because of her selflessness and concern for others.

Although Debbie is no longer with us in body, she will forever be with us in spirit and memory. In order to honor her and never let her be forgotten, we have established the Debbie Whittemore Endowed Scholarship Fund. public domains . It is exactly what she would have wanted, to provide opportunities for students to receive an education and go on to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

The Debbie Whittemore Scholarship will be awarded annually to two (2) Undergraduate Students who display outstanding academic excellence and have made significant contributions to student life and athletics on the campus and within the community.

Each year a 5K Run is held in Debbie’s memory, with the proceeds going to the scholarship fund. This year’s run will be held on Sunday, April 26, 2015 @ 9:30 am.

April is OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY Month!

In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. – See more at: http://www.aota.org/About-Occupational-Therapy.aspx…
