NEWS briefly EDUCATION

CTU: WE MUST DO BETTER IN PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN The Chicago Teachers Union is calling for an independent task force of parents, students, clinicians, teachers, union leaders, administrators and outside experts to address issues of sexual abuse in Chicago public schools – and to devise policies that will create safer school communities. The CTU is also renewing its call for more school clinicians, who are trained explicitly to address issues related to physical, sexual and emotional abuse of children. “School nurses and social workers are specially trained in how to handle sexual abuse,” said school social worker and CTU member Emily Penn, “but we have too few clinicians to support students, teachers and staff – less than 150 certified school nurses and only 170 counselors to cover over 600 schools. Much of our time is bound up with the burden of special education paperwork. That’s not enough to get students and staff the support they need, at the same time that we deal with real shortcomings in administrative follow-up or reporting on outcomes.”

HEALTH

2018 HEALTHY CHICAGO 2.0 COMMUNITY SEED GRANTS AWARDED Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) Commissioner Dr. Julie Morita and the Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago (PHIMC) recently announced the recipients of the 2018 Healthy Chicago 2.0 Community Seed Grants. The $150,000 grant was presented to four community-based organizations to improve health equity and support communitydriven change in North and South Lawndale. This year’s funding supports a vision for local change, developed and led by the community. Last year, Mayor Emanuel and CDPH awarded $175,000 to five community groups that addressed the conditions that promote heath in Austin, Armour Square, Englewood, Chicago Lawn and Gage Park. Community groups worked to improve access to social services, healthy food and safe public spaces.

LAW & POLITICS

Frerichs recently called on Governor Bruce Rauner to sign House Bill 4922 into law to put a stop to companies that issue rebate cards that charge dormancy or inactivity fees and avoid unclaimed property laws. House Bill 4922 recently passed the Illinois House and Senate with bipartisan support. The legislation amends the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act to prohibit the sale or issuance of a rebate card that charges dormancy fees and almost all other postissuance fees. The legislation was sponsored by Senator Cristina Castro (D-Elgin) and Representative Theresa Mah (D-Chicago).

Language Learning Center Provides Foreign Language Classes to Underserved Communities Continued from page 1 BY KATHERINE NEWMAN

A

fter offering traveling Spanish language enrichment classes for several years, FAYO Bilingual Training Institute (FBTI) finally opened a brick and mortar language learning center in Feb. in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood. FBTI still offers traveling language programs along with stationary language classes in their new location and the organization is currently preparing to host the inaugural five-week FBTI Summer Language Camp for kids. In 2016 Daniel Hernandez, founder and executive director of FBTI, met Dorothy Mars, FBTI Amigos Míos program director, and they quickly discovered that they were both working towards the same vision of bringing language enrichment programs to underserved communities. “In 2016 Daniel and I met through a mutual client and found out that we were doing the same thing. Amigo Míos is a program that I created and at the time, I was pretty much just going out to certain daycares

and providing Spanish,” said Mars. Very quickly the pair decided to combine forces. Through the partnership, Mars’ Amigos Míos program expanded to offer traveling language learning curriculum to daycare centers, learning centers, and afterschool programs all over the south and west sides of Chicago and the program now offers curriculum in several other languages outside of just Spanish. Growing up on the south side, Hernandez knew that there was a need for language enrichment in many of Chicago’s underserved communities and schools. Although he had the privilege of taking French and Spanish at Kenwood Academy, he noticed that many of his friends from other schools were not offered the same opportunities. “By the time I graduated high school I had taken AP Spanish and AP French,” said Hernandez. “However, for my peers that didn’t go to Kenwood Academy and went to other schools on the south side, their language departments were either nonexistent or not strong at all. There was a huge gap from my experience to what my peers at other schools experienced.” Because of this gap in resources from one

school to the next, Hernandez and Mars set out to provide language enrichment and language learning to schools that needed and wanted it. “Mainly, Daniel and I had the vision to provide these language services and enrichment activities on the south side of Chicago because we noticed that there weren’t that many other opportunities,” said Mars. This summer, FBTI will offer a five-week Summer Language Camp for children who are 7 to 13 years old. The camp will take place on Mon., Wed., and Fri. From July 9 to Aug. 10 and costs $50 a day. Students will study Spanish, Mandarin, and French languages along with the culture behind those languages. “This is our inaugural summer camp and it’s not a full immersion summer camp, but we are trying to push Spanish, Mandarin, and French. The kids will learn three different languages and their cultures by getting to try the food and going on cultural field trips,” said Hernandez.

TO YOUR HEALTH One of Chicago’s Top Cardiologists Works at Trinity Hospital BY: KATHERINE NEWMAN

A

special edition of Top Doctors was recently released by Chicago Magazine and named 138 top cardiologists working in the Chicagoland area. Among those named, 45 currently work for the Advocate Health Care’s Heart Institute. Cardiologist Pierrot Abi Mansour, M.D. sees patients at Advocate Trinity Hospital and was named one of Chicago’s Top Doctors specializing in Cardiac Electrophysiology. Cardiac Electrophysiology allows physicians to study and treat the electrical system of the heart, particularly focusing on abnormal heartbeats, or arrhythmias, according to the Advocate Heart Institute. Dr. Mansour received his medical training at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, OH and Emory University in Atlanta. After completing his residency, he began working as a Cardiologist at Northwestern University and eventually moved to private practice with the Advocate Health Care system. Being named a Top Doctor by Chicago Magazine has been a great honor, but at the end of the day, it has no effect on the way Mansour operates. “It’s a good feeling but it doesn’t change the way I treat my patients or how I see myself.

Dr. Pierrot Abi Mansour, (pictured) is a cardiologist at Advocate Trinity Hospital and was recently named one of Chicago’s Top Doctors specializing in Cardiac Electrophysiology.

I am the same doctor before the nomination and after the nomination. It’s a recognition of our work towards patient wellness and it’s a nice recognition,” said Mansour. More than anything else, Mansour said that he loves his job because he enjoys providing quality healthcare to his patients. “My favorite part is the interaction with my patients, making their life better, and

www.thechicagocitizen.com

making sure they stay away from the hospital and lead a normal life. This is my aim to treat every patient like a family member and keep them well and away from the hospital so that they can achieve whatever they want to achieve and help them reach their goals,” said Mansour. It is this type of empathy and compassion paired along with professional medical skills that make a Top Doctor. “The Top Doctors are not the smartest doctors, they are the doctors who best understand patients and how they interact with disease and how to interact with both of them. A Top Doctor can call upon empathy as needed, knowledge as needed, and knows when to apply their skill sets when doing a specific procedure and when not to apply their skill set,” said Dr. Imran Ali, Advocate Trinity Hospital section chief for Cardiology. The Advocate Health Care System is privileged to have so many excellent cardiologists working within the network and especially to have them seeing patients at Advocate Trinity Hospital, according to Ali. “I’m very proud to be part of the team at Trinity and to provide excellent care for the south-east neighborhoods of Chicago. We have a great potential to improve the health of our neighbors and we are there at Trinity to help them achieve their goals and to stay healthy and stay well,” said Mansour. Being a Top Doctor is not about money or notoriety for Mansour, he said a career in medicine is about dedicating your life to the wellness of others.

NEWS Janice Lopez Discusses the Impact of Early Childhood Education Businesses, WBDC’s Upcoming Expo and the Organization’s Support of Women-Owned Businesses BY LISETTE GUSHINIERE

CSTW: What challenges does the WBDC help women entrepreneurs overcome when they are establishing/ maintaining their businesses? Please speak to this both in terms of entrepreneurs who work in the child care industry and as it pertains to entrepreneurs in general?

T

he Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC) will host its 20th annual Early Childhood Education Entrepreneurship Expo on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 8:00am2:00pm. Rise Up: From Educator to Entrepreneur! focuses on building the foundations of child care businesses in Chicagoland. Expo is presented in Spanish and English and is the only event of its kind in the Chicago area that offers state-ofthe-art and industry-specific business guidance and resources to prospective and established early childhood education entrepreneurs. Highlights include workshops on increasing safety in businesses and orchestrating excellence through hiring, and the opportunity for childcare providers to complete the continuing education credits required to maintain their license. Founded in 1986, the WBDC has been in operation for more than 31 years. In this Q & A, the Citizen Suburban Times Weekly and Janice Lopez, managing director of entrepreneurial services at the Women’s Business Development Center.(WBDC) discuss the impact of early childhood education businesses, the upcoming expo and the organization’s support of womenowned businesses. CSTW: Besides this event, can you speak about other initiatives WBDC is currently involved in? What are some of the services you provide? JL: The Women’s Business

Development Center (WBDC) is a 501 (c)(3) and a nationally recognized leader in the field of women’s economic development. The organization was founded in 1986 to provide services and programs to support and accelerate women’s business ownership and strengthen the impact of women on the economy by creating jobs, fueling economic growth and building strong communities. The mission of the Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC) is to support and accelerate business development and growth, targeting women and serving all diverse business owners, in order to strengthen their participation in, and impact on, the economy. In Illinois, the WBDC offers: •C  apacity building to scale businesses to compete in the

marketplace • Technical assistance, financial support, direct lending and debt equity placement • Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) certification • Corporate and public sector procurement opportunities. Along with our annual Expo, the WBDC offers our Early Childhood Education Entrepreneurship Program year-round. The program supports the availability of more safe, affordable, and quality childcare for working mothers by helping early childcare entrepreneurs establish or expand their operations. It also creates a path to self-employment for those exploring this industry. CSTW: Explain in your view how women entrepreneurs impact the global economy? How are women entrepreneurs making an impact specifically in Chicago? JL: Entrepreneurship is on the rise

and does not show signs of slowing down anytime soon. According to the Global Entrepreneurship and Development Index, the United

States ranks first out of 138 countries for cultivating the best environment for business owners. An even bigger achievement is that nearly 11.3 million of those businesses are owned by women. According to American Express, women-owned businesses account for nearly 40% of the U.S. workforce, employ 8% of the private sector and contribute 4.2% of all revenues. Women entrepreneurs also significantly impact the employment growth rate, with women-owned businesses being stronger than all other businesses at 27% vs. 13%. Female entrepreneurs and business owners are innovating industries, empowering employees, and improving local communities. Specifically, through the child care industry, Chicago entrepreneurs are providing valuable resources to help combat the child care deserts - meaning a neighborhood either lacking any childcare options or with so few child care providers that there are more than three children for every licensed child care slot – in Chicago’s low- to moderate-income neighborhoods. www.thechicagocitizen.com

CSTW: Do you have any statistics on the number of women owned businesses in Chicago? JL: As of 2017, minorities accounted

for 46% of all women-owned businesses. In the City of Chicago, females are 51.48% of the total population, and based on the most current information of the U.S. Census, there are over 300,000 businesses in the City of Chicago of which over 123,000 are womenowned firms. . CSTW: Are your services specific to a certain geographical area or do you work with entrepreneurs outside of Chicago? JL: The WBDC serves a nine-state

region with three offices in the Chicagoland area, including its headquarters in Chicago, and four other satellite offices across the Midwest. Most of our programming and resources are offered to business owners and entrepreneurs in the state of Illinois (for example, their Early Childhood Education

owners navigate through a variety of challenges at every stage of a business’ life cycle. For instance, we provide oneon-one business advising to those just starting out, professional development seminars for business owners looking to take their business to the next level, and access to resource partners and other special programming for established businesses. Our Early Childhood Education Entrepreneurship Expo provides the opportunity for business owners to receive professional development credit which is vital to growing and maintaining a child care business. Also, for women who are just starting out in business, we provide our Developing Your Child Care Business series, which focuses on business operations and also enables them to earn up to 16 hours of INCCRRA/Gateway credit. As for entrepreneurs in general, one of the challenges we see time and time again is access to capital. At the WBDC, our Access to Capital program provides business owners with financial assessment, counseling, loan application assistance, direct lending and more. For instance, we educate business owners on how to prepare a profit and loss statement, or the importance of crowdfunding and equity treatment. We also inform them of what documentation is required for a loan application, or how to differentiate between potential sources of capital. As the Midwest’s regional partner for the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the country’s largest third-party certifier of women business enterprises (WBEs), we help local women business owners compete for contracts through Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) certification. From entrepreneurs to established business owners to supplier diversity leaders and community partners, we’ve built a network through which certified WBEs can learn and innovate together while accessing our diverse group of corporate and government Continued on page 5

NEWS Janice Lopez Discusses the Impact of Early Childhood Education Businesses Continued from page 3 partners that are eager to work with diverse suppliers. CSTW: How are entrepreneurs who are providing quality child care having an impact? Why are these services important? JL: One of the many entrepreneurial

areas in which we’ve seen womenbusiness owners thrive is the child care industry. In fact, America’s Small Business Development Center estimates that the U.S. child care services industry contributes $20 billion to the nation’s economy, which is why we offer specific programming related to starting and maintaining a child care business. These services are critical for Chicago communities – especially low- to moderate-income neighborhoods. In Chicago and Cook County, 38% of children live in single-parent households, which makes reliable child care even more important. Without safe and affordable child care, parents in Chicago cannot work and support their families.

There is a lot of emphasis on making sure kids have access to early childhood education during the ages of 0-3 because that is a crucial time for their development. When business owners are given support to manage a sound business they can, in turn, invest in our children. Providing a solution to child care issues can mitigate a number of economic hardships for working families.

Receiving child care assistance is linked to increased earnings and months worked. The more child care businesses that are readily available, the more it helps women overall because moms can go back to school or work, or start their own businesses, giving them the opportunity to earn more money to support their families.

CSTW: What trends are you seeing, if any, in the child care services profession?

CSTW: Please explain some of the goals of the upcoming WBDC’s 20th annual early childhood education entrepreneurship expo. What are you planning to accomplish?

JL: According to a recent study by

JL: At the Women’s Business

the Center for American Progress, in Chicago, 5 out of 6 children under the age of 5 live in child care deserts – meaning a neighborhood either lacking any child care options or with so few child care providers that there are more than three children for every licensed child care slot. For those reasons, we want to bring more attention and awareness to the importance of the child care industry. We’ve also seen research that proves mothers are more likely to leave their job and less likely to start a new job to address child care concerns.

Development Center (WBDC), our main priority is the economic empowerment of women- and minority-owned businesses and we work with entrepreneurs at all levels to help them succeed. Expo is one way we hope to inspire hardworking child care providers to continue or expand their services or entrepreneurs considering child care to fuel their own economic empowerment. We hope the event gives them the tools they need to succeed. Our annual Expo focuses on building the foundations of child care

businesses in the Chicagoland area to support the increased availability of more safe, affordable and quality child care for working families by helping early child care entrepreneurs establish or expand their operations. This drives our ultimate mission of strengthening the communities we serve. We also hope business owners will use this opportunity to earn some of their continuing education credits so they can remain in good standing to provide this valuable child care service to their community.

Debra Lee to Step Down as Chairman & CEO at BET Networks NEW YORK – After a trailblazing career in

television and entertainment spanning over 30 years at BET Networks, a unit of Viacom Inc. (NASDAQ: VIA, VIA.B sted NYSE: VIA, VIA.B) Debra Lee stepped down from her position as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BET Networks, on May 28, 2018. Lee, who began her career with the company as its first VP and General Counsel in 1986, was elevated to President and COO in 1996 and became Chairman and CEO in 2005.  Lee’s determination to make a real difference and give back greatly influenced BET Networks’ reinvigorated approach to developing authentic programming that both entertains and inspires the African-American community.   During Lee’s time at the helm, the network has enjoyed record-breaking success, including the 2014 series premiere of “The Game,” the most-watched sitcom premiere in cable TV history with 7.68 million viewers, and the 2017

hit mini-series “The New Edition Story,” which brought in 28.4 million viewers from the initial run through subsequent encores, making it the highest-rated TV biopic of all time. On Lee’s watch she oversaw the launch of the Network’s website, BET.com, developed BET Her, the first network for African-American women, and acquired television rights to “BLACK GIRLS ROCK”!™ Lee also launched Leading Women Defined, an annual conference where notable African American women, including Former First Lady Michelle Obama, Venus Williams, Issa Rae and Erykah Badu, to name a few, gathered each year for insightful debates and conversations on issues that impact their community and families.  Additionally, she championed BET’s breast cancer campaign “BET Goes Pink,” the education platform “BET Next Level,” awardwinning voting campaign “BET Vote Your Voice” and several telethons for Florida, Haiti and Katrina under the “SOS: Saving OurSelves”

initiative. Lee’s focus on diverse, high-quality scripted programming that positively highlights the African-American experience has set BET Networks apart from other brands desperate to reach the coveted black audience. Shows such as “Being Mary Jane,” “The Real Husbands of Hollywood,” and “In Contempt” have helped BET Networks remain the #1 network among African-American viewers for the past 17

years. Lee’s commitment to music and live entertainment led to the creation of one of the most popular award shows on television, “The BET Awards,” as well as the launch of the first festival weekend under the Viacom umbrella, The BET Experience. Her impact on the music industry led her to become the first woman to date to receive the Recording Academy’s prestigious Salute to Industry Icons Award.

FASHION Men’s Health Week Celebrated Up Until Father’s Day, Campaign Encourages People to Wear Blue to Raise More Awareness

J

une is recognized as Men’s Health Month, an annual awareness period solely dedicated to education and activities on the health and wellness of men and boys. This year, Men’s Health Week will be celebrated up until Father’s Day on June 17th. During this time, health care professionals, private corporations, faithbased community organizations, and government agencies, plan activities that focus on the health and well-being of boys, men, and their families.  Men’s Health Month is built on the pillars of Awareness–Prevention– Education–Family. “Awareness periods like Men’s Health Month are crucial in helping to educate the public on health issues and health disparities impacting men,” said Ana Fadich, VP of Men’s Health Network. “Men continue to suffer from chronic illness and lower insurance rates than women. Men are also less likely to seek out mental health services than women. Support for Men’s Health Month from policymakers, state and federal legislators, the media, and our private and non-profit partners can help fight these systemic issues and save lives.” “Health and safety are important in any workplace, particularly for men working physically demanding jobs. They are more prone to workplace injuries and it’s important for them to be aware of their health and engage their medical providers,” said Todd Washam, Director of Industry and External Relations Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA).  “Men’s Health Month is a great awareness and education period to encourage men to make their health a priority. Just like your car is triggered to remind you when it’s time to change your oil or get serviced, the month of June should serve as a mental trigger for men to get their body checked,” said Jamin Brahmbhatt , MD, a urologist and advisor to MHN.  “June is the perfect time for men to stop thinking and start getting screened for medical conditions that can be easily prevented and caught early. When it comes to your prostate health and overall wellness it’s better to get check now then wait until it’s too late.” This has been a pivotal year for men’s health. In May, a federal health task finalized new recommendations impacting prostate cancer screenings for men and MHN partnered with advocacy organizations to debrief legislative staff on the new recommendations to offer comments. MHN held a briefing on opioid addiction and men’s employment; as

well as another briefing on how the crisis continues to impact men’s mental health and wellness. “Awareness and early intervention are both key in preventing most chronic diseases impacting men, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and many types of cancer. Annual activities that promote awareness like Men’s Health Month are crucial in initiating conversations and leading men to be more engaged in their health,” said Jean Bonhomme, MD, Founder of the National Black Men’s Health Network. “Making men healthier can only lead to improved health for families and communities.” Over 300 mayors and governors across the country recognize June as Men’s Health Month with official proclamations. The proclamations are displayed in Congress and reports on the status of the health and well-being of boys and men in each state are available at the State of Men’s Health web site. Free resources are available in both English and Spanish at www. MensHealthMonth.com A key part of the continued momentum is the annual event and social media campaign, including: • Congress joins the celebration with a Congressional Workout, planned for June 14 • Men’s Health Month Twitter Chat is scheduled for June 27 at 2 PM EST • #ShowUsYourBlue campaign: People all over the world take pictures of themselves and others wearing blue to increase awareness for men’s health • The #ShowUsYourBlue social media storm is on Wear Blue Friday, June 15, the Friday of Men’s Health Week Men’s Health Month and Men’s Health Week are sponsored by Men’s Health Network (MHN), which maintains a list of experts and spokespersons on all areas of male health and wellness, including fatherhood issues. Men’s Health Month supporters include Sanofi-Regeneron, Allergan Foundation, and Pfizer, Inc. Men’s Health Network (MHN) is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men, boys, and their families where they live, work, play, and pray with health awareness messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy opportunities, and patient navigation. Learn more about MHN at www.menshealthnetwork. org and follow them on Twitter @ MensHlthNetwork and Facebook at www. facebook.com/menshealthnetwork.

For Father’s Day This Year, Let a Personal Stylist Come to Dad NEW YORK – It’s a no brainer that the retail

market has been going through drastic changes over the past 10 years. Stores are competing with the continuous growth in online sales. One of the biggest factors contributing to this market shift is the convenience that online shopping brings to its consumers. Companies are brainstorming on ways they can bring customers back into the stores and make their shopping experience easier.  Stores know they have something that online doesn’t, people and the actual product. Another shift in the consumer market is the
