I was also able to photograph in dressing rooms and capture candid, spontaneous moments when I was a record company photographer. Professional photographers do not get this kind of access anymore. These days, the performers themselves take selfies and send them out.” All photographs in the exhibition are for sale and make perfect gifts for a music-loving friends and family members.

“Mother Emanuel: An American Musical Play” Two Shows During Black History Month at Bethel AME Church of Ardmore he Mother Emanuel Nine is the subject of a powerful production, “Mother Emanuel: An American Musical Play,” being hosted by Bethel AME Church of Ardmore, Sunday, February 12. The musical is being presented in two performances, during the 10:30 a.m. worship service and 4 p.m. at the church located at 163 Sheldon Lane, Ardmore, PA. The stirring play pays homage to the nine members of historic Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. – Cynthia Marie Graham Hurd, Susie Jackson, Ethel Lee Lance, Depayne Middleton-Doctor, Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney who was also a state legislator, Tywanza Sanders, Daniel Simmons, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton and Myra Thompson – who were viciously massacred by a young, white supremacist, the evening of June 17, 2015, during a Bible study group at the church. Written by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, Adam Mace and Christian Lee Branch, the play won the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival Award for “Overall Excellence For A Musical” and was selected to be part of the Fringe Encore Series. The production has received excellent reviews from the New York Times and Washington Post among other media. Maharaj, guest artistic director of Philadelphia’s New Freedom Theatre, also directs the play. The immensely-talented cast of four that includes Branch, Marquis Gibson, Lauren Shaye and Nicole Stacie—portrays the nine martyred victims in what is a celebration of their remarkable lives. Although the play is set during the Bible study, it gives the audience some insight as to who the nine souls were through flashbacks that reveal their personal stories, strong faith, hopes and dreams. The gospel-infused musical also provides the audience with a rousing depiction


of the experience of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and invites the audience to feel the spirit of the moment. “We are happy to host the Mother Emanuel musical production which invites us into the lives and experiences of the nine souls lost in the horrific massacre that took place at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina in June, 2015,” said Rev. Carolyn C. Cavaness, pastor of Bethel AME Church. “We are very honored that the production desires to share the musical, which is full of great singing and testimony, inviting us into the lives of those departed.” In spite of the tragedy, the play is a heartfelt testament to the joy of life and the strength of a community of faith. While it is fitting that the play is being presented during Black History Month, it depicts a solemn part of American history that must be taught now and to future generations, like the four little Black girls who were brutally murdered while attending Sunday School when members of the Ku Klux Klan bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963. Their story and that of the Mother Emanuel Nine must never be forgotten. It is fitting that God’s judgment has come down on the demonic perpetrator who was recently sentenced to death for his evil deeds. Suggested donation for adults is $20. A portion of the donations is being contributed to support organizations that have been founded as a result of the senseless act of violence. Children are welcome with parental guidance strongly encouraged. Tickets may be purchased at the door for both performances.

and Progeny – a Concert and Conversation about Genius, Genes, and Epigenetics.” The Bach family dominated music in their region of Germany for five generations and produced Johann Sebastian Bach, widely considered the greatest composer of all time. After his sons’ generation, however, the family’s output dwindled. Dr. Harder will discuss the new field of Epigenetics and how how environment awakens the genes that may – or may not – produce creative genius. “This is truly an amazing program,” says Gilya Hodos, the Bala Cynwyd Library’s musical director. “Debra combines wonderful piano playing with thought-provoking commentary. You will enjoy wonderful music and learn something about the minds that produced it, all in one presentation. What could be better?” Dr. Harder, who has doctorates in both medicine and music, believes in the power of art to transform people’s lives. She started playing the piano by ear at age three and made her musical debut at twelve. While studying for a medical degree, she continued to perform in national chamber music concerts. Later, while an emergency room physician, she earned a second doctorate in music. She continues to perform widely throughout in the U.S. and overseas, and to teach and publish essays and transcriptions for piano on jazz, orchestral and non-Western music.

Crozer-Keystone Family Medicine Physician Receives Award for Work with Underserved Population rozer-Keystone family medicine physician Letitia O’Kicki, M.D. and her team recently received an award from the American Cancer Society in recognition of their outstanding commitment to increasing colorectal cancer screening rates among underserved populations. O’Kicki also is a faculty member of Crozer-Keystone’s Family Medicine Residency Program and Medical Director of ChesPenn Health Services. ChesPenn Health Services, Inc. is a regional network of nonprofit Federally Qualified Health Centers that provides affordable and accessible primary health care services, regardless of income or insurance status. O’Kicki and her team received the Project Award for Increasing Colon Cancer Screening from the American Cancer Society (ACS) at the Greater Philadelphia Volunteer Awards ceremony in late 2016. The ACS recognized the ChesPenn Center for Family Health at Upper Darby as one of the earliest supporters of its “80% by 2018” campaign to increase colorectal cancer screening rates. O’Kicki’s program, which operated under a grant from the ACS and the Philadelphia Get Your Rear In Gear event, implemented several measureable project goals, some of which include: • Build a colorectal cancer screening program that maximizes patient engagement and adherence. • Educate a target patient population on the importance and methods of screening. • Improve access to low-cost screening and diagnostic colonoscopies. O’Kicki and her team found that only 13.6 percent of eligible Upper Darby patients were up-to-date on their colorectal cancer screenings in 2013, and 17 percent in 2014. By working to reduce barriers – such as cost, cultural and language barriers, and fear – uninsured patients were Letitia O’Kicki, M.D., Crozer-Keystone Family screened and educated on the importance of screening. Medicine physician and Medical Director of As a result, ChesPenn’s Center for Family Health at Upper Darby increased ChesPenn Health Services. screening rates from 17 percent in 2014 to 28 percent in 2016. In addition, the staff reached and educated more than 430 patients on the importance of screening. “It was an honor to receive the award, and to work collaboratively with the American Cancer Society and the entire ChesPenn staff to make it happen,” O’Kicki says. “This was truly a team effort.” The colorectal cancer screening program has been expanded to include all of ChesPenn’s health centers as part of its continuing efforts to provide preventive care. In order to accomplish this, ChesPenn is participating in a joint project between the American Cancer Society, the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Health Federation of Philadelphia to work toward the goal of reaching 80 percent of adults aged 50 and over for colorectal cancer screenings by 2018. This project provides Federally Qualified Health Centers with training, assistance with quality improvement, and support for implementing interventions. The ChesPenn Center for Family Health at Upper Darby is lauded by Crozer-Keystone Family Residency Program residents for providing a learning environment that offers enviable opportunities for case discussion and teaching. In addition to the colorectal cancer screening initiative, O’Kicki’s team has also provided community education on diabetes and is currently piloting a project for the American Cancer Society aimed at increasing HPV vaccination rates at the Upper Darby location.

Merion Mercy Academy Summer Programs: Something for Everyone





grades 6-12 U Co-Educational Academic & Enrichment U Sports Camps MMA Summer Programs’ students become fast friends! or more than 25 years, the summer programs at Merion Mercy Academy have offered a multitude of academic, athletic, and enrichment opportunities for students. In recent years, the offerings have expanded and now MMA’s summer programs provide academic and enrichment opportunities for girls and boys grades 6 to 12 and sports camps for girls grades 4 to 10. MMA teachers and coaches run most of the programs, and students can sample everything from field hockey to forensics. Whether students wish to sharpen their writing skills, earn high school credits, prepare for the various high school and scholarship exams, or try a new sport, such as volleyball, there’s a summer program at Merion Mercy that matches their interests. “There really is something for everyone in MMA's summer programs,” said Director of Summer Programs Mrs. Barbara Harrison. “We are proud to have strong instructors and utilize our facilities to offer students a productive and unique summer experience.” Close to 100 high school students take part in the summer programs while elementary school students and incoming freshmen are also eager to explore MMA’s six-acre campus. And, although there are several co-ed options, many of the summer programs allow prospective students the chance to get to know MMA’s campus, meet faculty members, staff members, and /or coaches, and experience the school’s programs first hand. Most notably, the all-girls academic enrichment option is a pre-eighth grade program called the Summer Academy. Summer Academy is a full-day, four-week program designed specifically for girls entering grade eight. The Summer Academy helps students begin the transition from an elementary school to a college preparatory high school program. Students take courses, such as pre-algebra, language arts, study skills, and public speaking. There is also a fitness class built in that includes options such as tennis and yoga. As one happy Summer Academy parent noted, “My daughter loved the program, learned a lot, and made great new friends. For our family, MMA’s Summer Academy was a perfect mix of learning and fun.” “Our Summer Academy is a great way for young girls to spend their summer days. They receive unparalleled preparation for eighth and ninth grades and beyond, prepare for the entrance exams for high school, and learn various skills, such as time management and effective study skills. Plus there is a healthy living component, where students utilize some of the fitness amenities at MMA,” said Mrs. Harrison. Whether families are looking for an all-day camp experience or would like the freedom to select half-day programs that focus on a particular area of interest, Merion Mercy has something for everyone.

Next without glucose, neurons starve and eventually die. The new study, published online January 31 in the journal Translational Psychiatry, is the first to directly link memory impairment to glucose deprivation in the brain specifically through a mechanism involving the accumulation of a protein known as phosphorylated tau. “Phosphorylated tau precipitates and aggregates in the brain, forming tangles and inducPHILADELPHIA AND THE MAIN LINE’S FAVORITE WEEKLY ing neuronal death,” Dr. Praticò explained. In general, a greater abundance of neurofibrillary tau tangles is associated with more severe dementia. The study also is the first to identify a protein known as p38 as a potential alternate drug target in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Neurons activate p38 protein in response to glucose deprivation, possibly as a defensive mechanism. In the long run, however, its activation increases tau phosphorylation, making the problem worse. To investigate the impact of glucose deprivation on the brain, Dr. Praticò’s team used a mouse model that recapitulates memory impairments and tau pathology in Alzheimer’s disease. At about 4 or 5 months of age, some of the animals were treated with 2-deoxyglucose (DG), a compound that stops glucose from entering and being utilized by cells. The compound was administered to the mice in a chronic manner, over a period of several months. The animals were then evaluated for cognitive function. In a series of maze tests to assess memory, glucose-deprived mice performed significantly worse than their untreated counterparts. 5, 2016 June 29 – July munity News When examined microscopically, neurons in the brains of DG-treated mice exhibited Years of Com Celebrating 31 ers’ 2016 F R E E Year 31, No. 43 abnormal synaptic function, suggesting that neural communication pathways had broken Academy PlayBo nanza Coming OlSudmm g ct in e-A FIND YOUR rit On W er or m Hu down.

In the new study, they found that memory impairment was of Music e6 Pag directly associated with increased p38 activation. “The findings are very exciting,” Dr. Praticò said. “There is now a lot of evidence to suggest that p38 is involved in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.” The findings also lend support to the idea that chronically occurring, small episodes of in glucose deprivation are damaging for the brain. “There is a high likelihood that those types Tim McGraw ch Wildwood Bea of episodes are related to diabetes, which is a condition in which glucose cannot enter the Concert O 7 e Pag cell,” he explained. “Insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes is a known risk factor for dementia.” According to Dr. Praticò, the next step is to inhibit p38 to see if memory impairments can be alleviated, despite glucose deprivation. “It is an exciting avenue of research. A drug targeting this protein could bring big benefits for patients,” he added. aker John Wanam Other researchers involved in the new study include Elisabetta Lauretti, Jian-Guo Li, and Athletic Award Page 12 Antonio Di Meco in the Department of Pharmacology and Center for Translational Medicine at LKSOM.

As the lights come up, we see Lenny, a middle-aged, mild-mannered schoolteacher whose wife Risa has suddenly left him, brooding in his den, the remains of a pizza on the floor and the movie “To Kill a Mockingbird” heard on the TV. Lenny’s longtime friend, Mickey, enters, a blustering, loud-mouthed, politically incorrect transit worker, who has an inspired, but legally dubious plan to get back Lenny’s estranged wife. This decidedly black contemporary comedy-satire takes on a heady range of issues, from racism and violence to religion and free will, leaving the audience a little discomfited, yet at the same time roaring with laughter! Bruce Graham (b. 1956), Philadelphia native, began his career as a playwright with “Burkie” in 1984 at the Philadelpia Festival Theatre for New Plays (PFT). He has since authored some two dozen plays, performed all around the country (for example, “Moon Over the Brewery,” “Belmont Avenue Social Club,” “Minor Demons,” “Coyote on a Fence,” “According to Goldberg,” “Something Intangible,” “Rizzo”). The Stagecrafters has produced a number of his plays, most recently “Something Intangible” in 2015. “Any Given Monday” premiered at Philadelphia’s Theatre Exile in 2010 (co-produced with Act II Playhouse) to critical praise; and during 2011 it enjoyed an extended run in New York City.
