Colleges Against Cancer is holding our annual Relay for Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society virtually TOMORROW! Cancer hasn't stopped just because of all of this, so neither are we. The American Cancer Society needs us now more than ever, as cancer patients are among those at a high risk of infection, and this has stopped patients from being able to get chemotherapy treatments, among other things.

Participate throughout the day by walking/running/biking. Ask friends and family members for donations, or pledge to walk/run/bike a number of steps/miles to be matched by their donation and help us reach our goal of raising $2,400 in 24 hours. Tag us in your posts and use #PaceRelay20 so we can share on our account and with the American Cancer Society!

Recognize emotions while not identifying with them:
Take a moment to notice emotions: do you feel unsettled? Anxious? Afraid? Angry? Depressed?
What sensations do you notice in the body? Tightness? Pain? Cold? Warm?
Rather than pushing emotions and sensations away, simply practice being aware of them, observing them with curiosity, like clouds passing in the sky. When emotions or sensations seem too intense, bringing the awareness to the breath, placing one hand on the chest and one hand on the belly, and simply breathing slowly – gently closing the eyes to allow focusing inward. Practice putting some distance between yourself and your emotions, gently letting go.

Lovinkindness Practice:
(Adapted from Sharon Salzberg)
Sitting quietly with your eyes closed and repeating silently the Loving Kindness phrases, first addressed to yourself, and then slowly expanding the circle to various individuals, to all beings:
May [I/You/All Beings] be safe and free from danger
May [I/You/All Beings] be happy in body, mind, and spirit
May [I/You/All Beings] be healthy and strong
May [I/You/All Beings] live with ease

Feeling our interconnectedness, our common humanity:
With social distancing, there may be a feeling of isolation, anxiety, particularly when living alone. Paradoxically recognize that we are all sharing this social distancing and we are actually more connected than ever. Social distancing doesn’t mean social disconnection. Fortunately, in 2020 technology allows us to continue to foster social connection and a sense of community. Join an online meditation group in your area!

Practice STOP:
S-Stop
T-Take a breath
O-Observe – what you are feeling internally in the body (heart beating faster? Tension in the shoulders? Knot in the stomach?) and externally (alarming news, sounds, voices…)
P-Proceed or Pause again before proceeding

The STOP practice helps us practice Pausing which is at the heart of mindfulness practice.

A Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist's (RDN) snowy night dinner: warm veggies, lean meat and mashed potatoes. Colorful = loaded with nutritents (and comfort!) Then a long winter's nap. Zzzzz....
Just arrived in Washington, DC, at the national Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (#FNCE), which is the national Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' (Eat Right Nutrition) annual gathering about 8,000 dietitians. Tomorrow I'll be "womaning" the College of Health Professions at Pace University's first MS in Nutrition and Dietetics booth at the Expo! Prof. Mary Opfer and our student, Michelle Iannacchino will be joining me a the table.
August 2, 1993 was my first day at Pace, so I just completed 25 wonderful years. To this day I believe this was the best decision of my professional career. Being able to touch thousands of lives through the education of health practitioners is an honor and a privilege. Being able to mentor so many faculty and staff has been so very gratifying. Knowing how far this all reaches to many thousands of patients and their families is overwhelming! We do great work at the College of Health Professions and I am very proud to lead the way as your dean! Harriet R. Feldman
Hello, Just looking for some people who are in the first cohort of the new M.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders program. Message me
Hello. I am a student at Pace in the PA program. One of my neighbors is trying to rent a room in her house in Brooklyn (park slope south area). She is a single mom with two girls (10ish). She is looking to rent to a female. Rent is $800/mo for a fully furnished room and then full access to common areas. If anyone is interested or knows of anyone that would be interested just send me a message and I can get more information. Thanks!
Please support the #BSN10 campaign – an initiative that will improve the outcomes of patient care in our state and across the nation, and will forever impact the nursing profession. The bill has been sent to the Governor and he has 10 days to act on the bill; we must move quickly on getting our messaging out. We need to show the Governor the importance of this legislation; that it matters to millions of patients, doctors, nurses and hospitals in New York. One of the best ways to do this is to create a social media campaign to share your support and “tagging” Governor Cuomo’s office so he and his staff can see the power of the campaign. And it’s easy to do! Follow these steps: Step 1 – Getting Started Set up your Social Media Account(s) • If you do not already have one, set up a Twitter and Facebook account. It’s a simple process with clear prompts asking for very specific information, like email address and your user name or “handle” as it is referred to on Twitter. The following link is to a helpful article that explains the process. It is a bit out dated in one aspect and that is the number of characters you can use. This year Twitter increased the maximum number of characters from 140 to 280. Facebook does not have a limit and allows for more text in its posts, but be concise. https://www.wired.com/2016/05/twitter-onboarding-tips-for-new-users/ • Remember each Tweet must include these handles for either Facebook or Twitter (note the difference): @NYGovCuomo (twitter) and @Governor Andrew Cuomo (Facebook). • Repetition is VERY important. Please tweet/post at least once a day during the 10 day period. Step 2 – Start Engagement Once your accounts are established you are now ready to send the Governor a tweet showing your support. 1. Twitter - Below we have provided some sample tweets that you can use: • NYS is US leader in health care. Please sign A1842/S6768 @NYGovCuomo #BSN10. It will save lives! • Quality healthcare is critical & New Yorkers depend on it. Please sign A1842/S6768 #BSN10 @NYGovCuomo • Every NYer deserves the best healthcare. @NYGovCuomo A 10% increase in the proportion of BS prepared nurses decreases the risk of patient death by 5%. Please sign A1842/S6768 #BSN10 • Improved patient outcomes reduce the cost of healthcare & save the State scarce healthcare dollars. Please @NYGovCuomo sign A1842/S6768 #BSN10 legislation • Patients come first! @NYGovCuomo Make NY the first in the nation & sign A1842/S6768 #BSN 10 legislation • More RNs with BS education results in less patient deaths and better patient health outcomes. Please @NYGovCuomo sign A1842/S6768 #BSN10 legislation 2. Create a Facebook post - you have the ability to add more information to a post on Facebook, but it is still best to keep all posts concise. Below is an example of a Facebook post you can use. • Advances in health science and technology, increasing complexity of patient care, and a more diverse population require registered professional nurses with different and improved skills than in the past. Patients come first! @Governor Andrew Cuomo, make New York the first in the nation & sign A.1842/S.6768 #BSN10 legislation. o NOTE: there is a different handle for Facebook and that is the only way to notify the Governor of your Facebook post. Use: @Governor Andrew Cuomo. And if you would like to take it a step further... Take a photo with your #BSN10 Support Sign—at your facility, in your neighborhood, in your home, or anyplace that is important to you and your story. • Share your photo on Twitter and Facebook – make sure to tag Governor Cuomo AND the #BSN10. Again, each tweet/post must include these handles: @NYGovCuomo (twitter) and @Governor Andrew Cuomo (Facebook). Social Media hints to be aware of: • Always use the @ if you want that person to be notified that you have tagged them. • A hashtag is more for a campaign where others can participate - it is significantly less important for our purposes here. Think of it this way - someone will create a hashtag for an event or an issue we're all talking about - #SuperBowl or #NY21. The @ is targeting a specific person: @NYGovCuomo • For the #BSN10 Campaign, we will use #BSN10 and then anyone can search that hashtag on twitter. But what we really always need is for the Governor's staff to see it every single time we tweet so tagging him is most important. Send the following tweet: I am right behind you! Please sign BSN10 legislation A1842/S6768
Happy Nurses Week everyone! Pace Alumni who all work with me at Vassar Brothers Medical Center!
