Don't miss this important forum. Free and open to the public, no tickets or RSVPs required. A major strategic decision for healthcare is facing us: Should we advocate for a bold step forward or should we be wary of reaching too far, gaining nothing, and strengthening the dysfunctional status quo? Ed Weisbart MD, chair of the MO chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program, believes the time is now for single payer Medicare for All, that partial steps will delay the changes we desperately need while accomplishing too little for too few. Ken Schechtman, Professor of Biostatistics and Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine, agrees with the goal of universal healthcare but believes advocacy for Medicare for All is more likely to lead to the re-election of President Trump.

TIME STANDS STILL THEATER PERFORMANCE

New Jewish Theater

Time Stands Still revolves around Sarah, a photojournalist who has returned from covering the Iraq war after being injured by a roadside bomb, and her reporter boyfriend James who is swamped by guilt after having left Sarah alone in Iraq. The two are trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life. Can they stay together amidst unspoken betrayals and conflicting ideals? Playwright Margulies answers these questions, while leaving unanswered qualms regarding the way America deals with war and tragedy coverage. Directed by Doug Finlayson; Cast Wendy Greenwood, Ben Nordstrom*, Jerry Vogel*, Libby Jasper

Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired

Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired introduces new eyeglass mounted technology to St. Louis. The Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired announces the introduction of OrCam MyEye a new wearable device that mounts on glasses, receives visual information and speaks to the wearer, recognizes products and identifies faces. The Orcam is now available exclusively at the Society. According to David Ekin, President of the Society, “This device makes the world of difference for those who have limited vision. We are excited to introduce this remarkable device which interprets visual information using a smart camera mounted on the frames of the wearer’s eyeglasses and allows them to instantly and discreetly read their mail, newspapers and magazines, restaurant menus, even recognize faces and objects, opening up a whole new world! This only adds to the many options we offer for those with low vision”. OrCam is available for demonstration, training and purchase through the Society. The price for the base reader only is $2,500 or $3,500 ($4,500 wireless) for a device with all options. Anyone needing the Society’s services, including the OrCam demonstration, may visit www.slsbvi.org or call the Society’s office at 314-968-9000.

AFFORDABLE COLLEGE ROOM AND BOARD

Connect Room & Board

We are Connect Room & Board, created by two moms wanting to make college more affordable. Connect R&B is a network of hosts and students who, once they pass a background check, register on our site to communicate details such as house rules prior to forming a match. Once the match is made the student pays $1,500 for one semester of housing. We are currently looking for hosts and have found that seniors benefit greatly from this program as guests can exchange help around the house, rides to appointments and companionship for reduced rental of a spare room. Our goal is to aid as many students as possible achieve the dream of a higher education.

FORMER MILITARY AS VOLUNTEERS

Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care

November is a traditional time for recognizing the service and commitment of those who have served their country as a member of the Armed Services.

Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care wants to enlist former military personnel from across the Greater St. Louis region to serve as volunteers to assist in providing care and comfort for hospice patients who are themselves Veterans. (Patients who are Veterans often find it easier to communicate with a fellow Veteran.)

FYI, Medicare guidelines require all hospices to have a team of volunteers providing day-to-day administrative and/or direct patient care services in an amount that equals at least 5% of total patient care hours of all paid hospice employees and contract staff.

Thank you in advance for helping us spread the word.
