Each year, millions of writing instruments are needlessly discarded and end up in the landfills. These used pens and markers are NOT degradable. They contribute to filling up our FINITE landfill space. As part of our mission to help create a healthier community through creating a healthier environment, Community Medical Centers' Sustainability-VAT’s (Value Analysis Team) has been collecting used writing instruments and recycling them into new products with he help of Terracycle.

I am not sure which is my favorite season, spring or fall.  However, what I do love about both is the weather they share.  There is nothing like that cool, crisp weather with just a slight bite in the air.  You know those occasional days when the air actually has a little bit of a coastal feel, even way inland here in Fresno.  There is no beating those days where the temp is right around 60 or so, the sun is out and proper dress code for the day is a ball cap, long sleeve tshirt, shorts and flip flops.

...and so is the potential to consume an average of 4,500 calories during a typical Thanksgiving Feast-yikes!

Oh well, it's only one time per year, right? I like the saying: "It's not what you do between Thanksgiving and New Years, it's what you do between New Years and Thanksgiving".

Six years ago, when one of our Home Health nurses, Gene Kliewer, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in its early stages, he was given four choices: surgery to remove the prostate; multiple radiation treatments; CyberKnife treatment; or do nothing and just watch to see if it got worse. He rejected choice number four, but had lots of questions about his other options. Taking to prostate cancer survivors in our monthly support group helped him decide on CyberKnife.
