Dyslexia: Basic Facts

Licensed psychologist Dr. Dawn Doup recently opened Foundations Dyslexia and Learning Centers with two colleagues in order to provide services for children, adolescents, and adults with dyslexia.  Dyslexia is a learning disability that includes difficulties with accurate or fluid word recognition, poor decoding, and poor spelling abilities.  It impacts one’s ability to read and write and often affects an individual’s self-image due to feeling less capable than others.  The effects of untreated dyslexia can have a long-term impact including problems with education and job performance.  Doup will discuss symptoms of dyslexia as well as how it is evaluated and interventions that help with both children and adults.

Yellow Jug Old Drug Program

Started by the Great Lakes Clean Water Organization in 2008, the Yellow Jug Old Drug Program has partnered with Pharmacy Care Solutions in Columbus, Indiana to provide secure and responsible drug disposal.  The Yellow Jug Old Drug Program addresses the fact that there are very limited ways to dispose of unwanted drugs.  Now, consumers can take their unwanted medications to Pharmacy Care Solutions, located at 2323 N. Marr Road, Columbus year-round for a safe disposal option while reducing the amount of chemicals showing up in our water.  
The Yellow Jug Old Drug Program not only decreases the volume of expired or unused prescription d​rugs in our medicine cabinets, it could also have a beneficial impact on the environment and the state’s fresh water supply.

Breast Cancer Event / Q & A Session

Franciscan St. Francis is hosting a breast cancer educational event in Columbus. The main activity at the event is the free showing of the movie “Decoding Annie Parker.” The movie tells the story of 3-time cancer survivor Annie Parker and the almost discovery of a cure for cancer. And how the BRCA gene mutation was discovered, which places women at increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

In addition to the movie, Dr. Erika Rager, Dr. Juliana Meyer and Morgan Dally, genetic counselor, will be at the event. The team will provide a short presentation on breast cancer and role of family history and genetics. And, they will lead the attendees in completing an individual risk assessment for breast and ovarian cancer. They will also lead a Q&A session after the movie. Any woman with a family history of breast or ovarian cancer who is concerned about her personal risk or, any women simply interested in learning more about breast health are invited to attend.

 

The event is free; however, seating is limited so registration is required. Registration will be handled by our call center. The registration number is (877) 888-1777. The movie is Rated R, so only those 18 years of age and older can attend. Free refreshments will be provided. Participants will have the opportunity to complete a high risk assessment to determine if they are at increased risk for breast or ovarian cancer. We can use the name of the movie, actors, etc. in promoting the event. And any imaging from or about the movie, including movie trailers, etc. Each attendee will receive a free Vera Bradley gift bag.
