MCCS HAPPENINGS


Perfect Picnic Pointers Use these tips to ensure your summer picnics are safe and full of family fun: • • • • • • • •

Bring moist towelettes or soap and water to wash your hands before, during, and after preparing foods. Defrost meat at home in the refrigerator, never at the picnic site, and don’t reuse marinade unless it has been boiled. Keep raw or thawed meats tightly sealed and away from other foods. Pack meats in a separate cooler if you can. To prevent cross-contamination, bring two sets of cooking utensils - one for raw food, one for cooked food. Use a meat thermometer to make sure hamburgers and bratwursts are cooked to 160°F and chicken breasts to 165°F. Pack the cooler with plenty of ice or ice packs to keep food at a temperature of 40°F or below. Carry coolers in the back seat of an air conditioned car instead of in the hot trunk. If possible, park in the shade at the picnic site. Make sure cooked meats, potatoes, and eggs are cooled to 40°F if they are used to make salads prepared with mayonnaise. Eat take-out foods like fried chicken within two hours or make sure they are chilled properly before you put them in the cooler. Discard any food that has been left out of the cooler for more than two hours. Bacteria can start to grow quickly after two hours.

recipe Pasta with Fresh Tomato-Basil Sauce Though we paired this chunky sauce with fettuccine, it would also be nice with short pasta shapes like penne, gemelli, or farfalle. For a more dramatic presentation, use multicolored cherry tomatoes, or a combination of cherry and pear (or teardrop-shaped) tomatoes. YIELD: 4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups pasta and about 2 tablespoons cheese) TOTAL: 15 Minutes COURSE: Main Dish

This class takes an inside look at the many factors that come into play within a marriage, including the dynamics of each partner’s family. When two people marry, they not only marry each other, but they also marry into each other’s families. These family systems have a huge influence on you, your spouse, and your future family. Take an in-depth look at you and your spouse’s family dynamics and learn how to use that knowledge to establish and enhance a healthy foundation.

Ginny and William have to be parents all over again. “2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America” by Albert Brooks. By the year 2014 cancer had been alleviated, America had aged dramatically, and people were living into their 80s with no natural end in sight. As they reaped perpetual retirement benefits, and lived securely on pensions that never envisioned longevity, the young people of the world simmered with resentment toward them. Then, in 2030 an earthquake struck Los Angeles that set in motion an unthinkable option. “The Final Storm: A Novel of the War in the Pacific” by Jeff Shaara.

This is the story of the early years of Mama Ruby, one of the South’s most notorious and volatile women. “Embassytown” by China Mieville. On a distant planet, humans and an alien race live in a nonviolent but uncomfortable arrangement. Although they’re not happy to share the city, they manage to get along.

Behavioral Health Branch 101 Days of Summer: Alcohol and the Heat The Tri-Command and surrounding communities are in full swing with the summer season. This time of year brings fun and people together; however, without good planning and use of safe practices, the fun can turn dangerous. It is vital to be conscientious and respectful with the combination of alcohol and sun. Often people think of a cold beer as the ultimate refreshment on a hot and humid day. While drinking a cold beer at a softball game or a picnic is usually done with little or no concern, the combination of heat exposure and the excessive use of alcohol can be a problem. The final breakdown of alcohol in the body is through the release of H2O (water). With the increased use of alcohol in these hot, humid conditions, the greater the release of water within the body. This is setting the stage for dehydration and the risk for other heat related illnesses increases. Stay alert to the signs of over-exposure (dizziness, racing heart, vision impairment to name a few) and keep in mind, that alcohol is a drug, not just a “social lubricant.” The MCCS Behavioral Health Branch Preven-

The over-arching goal is to partner with our community in promoting the safe use of alcohol and to implement health standards that will help keep all Marines and their family members safe this summer. Please check out the MCCS-SC web site for further details on the 101 Days of Summer and the activities that you can participate in throughout the Tri-Command and Community this summer.

The BAP meets in a public forum about six weeks after each DoD P&T Committee meeting. BAP members are appointed on an annual basis by the secretary of defense to represent the interests of TRICARE beneficiaries. BAP members come from nongovernment organizations and associations that represent the views of a large number of eligible beneficiaries. These members include contractors responsible for the retail pharmacy network, TRICARE Pharmacy Home Delivery and TRICARE network providers. Members also come from beneficiary organizations such as the Fleet Reserve Association, the Military Coalition, the National Military Family Association, the Military Officers Association of America, the Military Alliance and the National Military and Veterans Alliance. Information discussed at BAP meetings does not include specific drug pricing or financial information. The meetings focus on the uniform formulary recommendations and prior authorization criteria recommended by the DoD P&T Committee. The BAP does not review Military Treatment Facility Basic Core Formulary/Extended Core Formulary recommendations or quantity limits. A major focus of the BAP is the process of implementing uniform formulary decisions, especially communications with beneficiaries. The BAP has been instrumental in DoD’s decision to send letters that target affected beneficiaries during the implementation period before drugs are designated non-formulary (Tier 3).

Did You Know? Federal Drug and Product Recalls Are Listed Online The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting public health by assuring the safety and security of drugs, food, medical devices and other consumer products. One way the FDA fulfills its mission is by recalling unsafe products from the marketplace. You can identify the drugs and other products the FDA finds unsafe by going to www.fda.gov/recalls. The website includes a list of recalls, market withdrawals, safety alerts and other important information for you and your family. You can also visit www.recalls.gov for information on additional federal recalls of household electronics, motor vehicles and other consumer products.

Social Security Numbers Will Be Removed from Beneficiary ID The Federal Register announces all BAP Cards BAP Meeting Information

meetings at least two weeks in advance and provides necessary supplementary information. Meeting information and supporting materials can also be obtained by visiting

The Department of Defense (DoD) is in the process of removing Social Security numbers (SSNs) from uniformed services identification

(ID) cards as part of the continued effort to protect the privacy and security of TRICARE’s 9.6 million beneficiaries. Before June 2011, SSNs will begin to be replaced with a DoD Benefits Number. This process is expected to last several years, until all current uniformed services ID cards are replaced as they come up for renewal. Note: You do not need to make a special trip to have your ID card updated until it expires. Your health care providers and pharmacists will be able to access your benefits using either your SSN or your DoD Benefits Number. The new 11-digit DoD Benefits Number can be found above the bar code on the back of your ID card. This number is a unique number, like your SSN, and it will ensure that your records are clearly aligned with you and your treatments. If you have questions, please visit www.tricare.mil/ssn.
