A note to our readers The biggest health story currently being reported on is the Coronavirus outbreak. While no cases have yet been reported in Sullivan County our reporters are working to stay on top of the latest news in our region. Stories on the Coronavirus and its impact on our region will appear on the news pages of the Sullivan County Democrat and on our online edition at www. scdemocratonline. com. We are commited to keeping you informed to the best of our ability.

his time of year, there are always plenty of us experiencing, and complaining about, the very unpleasant symptoms of colds, flu and other respiratory symptoms. Wintertime means the heat is on in the house, which can dry out the air in your home, in turn drying out your nasal passages. Dry nasal passages make it easier for viruses to really settle in and do their nefarious work. Having the heat on also means making sure the house is closed up against the weather, which leads to people spending a lot more time a lot closer together. In short, between the months of December and March when respiratory illnesses typically peak, the result is a perfect storm of circumstances for those illnesses to thrive and jump from one person to another. Here are two common winter illnesses that people should know. Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) RSV is the most common cause of the respiratory illnesses in children. It shares symptoms with the common cold – runny nose, sneezing, and cough – sometimes fever and decreased appetite which can lead to dehydration. It’s most commonly seen in babies six months old or younger. If you recognize any of these signs of RSV in your infant, it is advisable to make an appointment with your family doctor or pediatrician to assess and monitor the situation. It is possible for RSV to lead to

illnesses such as bronchiolitis or pneumonia, especially in vulnerable populations like babies. Acute Bronchitis This one is commonly referred to as the “chest cold.” With bronchitis, the airways of the lungs get really swollen, and when that happens, they produce a lot of mucus, which is what makes people cough so much. Bronchitis is almost always viral, not infectious, and usually lasts about three weeks, which is when people start to get worried that it's more bacterial than viral. The prominent symptom that troubles so many is persistent coughing, that is either productive or not, which is to say if mucus is being expelled or not. Chest soreness is another common symptom, and you may also experience fatigue, headache and body aches; even sore throat. The best way to treat bronchitis is with rest and abundant fluids. Respiratory illnesses are uncomfortable and largely unavoidable this time of year. People with preexisting chronic conditions that affect the lungs are even more susceptible. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of RSV, bronchitis or other respiratory illnesses the Primary Care physicians of Catskill Regional Medical Group can help. We have locations throughout Sullivan County – Monticello, Bethel, Callicoon and Livingston Manor – with daytime and evening hours available, including same-day appointments.

fter Sullivan County ranked second to last in New York State in health outcomes, according to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Program study, a new nonprofit was born to combat our health challenges. Sullivan 180, as its namesake says, wants to turn the health ranking 180 degrees and get us going in an upward swing. However, Sullivan 180 could not do it alone and reached out to the community to seek individuals who wanted to be Community Health Champions. Now there are health champions in almost every town in Sullivan County, and each is doing different things to improve their community health. In Forestburgh, Councilwoman Karen Ellswieg became certified as a health champion and helped start Forestburgh Friends For Fitness (F4). F4 meets every third Wednesday, in the lower level of Forestburgh Town Hall, located at 332 King Road from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. “I became a Health Champion because I want to help my community,” said Ellswieg. “I believe it is the responsibility of all residents in Sullivan County to get involved as best we can and to improve our health and that of our neighbors.

Forestburgh’s Sullivan 180 What you need to do to prepare for emergency personnel STORY AND PHOTO BY PATRICIO ROBAYO

Sullivan 180’s mission is to improve the health of our county one degree at a time, so I am proud to represent our efforts at a grass roots level,” added Ellswieg. For their February, 2020 meeting, F4 invited Forestburgh native Danielle Cassidy, who was the town’s first female firefighter and served for 19 years. She is also an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and has been since 2004. Because of her experience as a firefighter and an EMT, she spoke about her

experiences and how you can best prepare if any emergency personnel have to visit your home. Cassidy, who comes from a long line of firefighters in her family, always wanted to be one when she was young. When she turned 16, she and her brother jumped at the chance to apply and soon became firefighters like their father before them. “A lot of my childhood was spent at the firehouse,” said Cassidy. Since firefighters not only deal with fires but are sometimes the only person on the scene who can provide medical assistance during an emergency incident, Cassidy said they have to think quickly on their feet. “I love emergency services, and I want to help,” said Cassidy. The Forestburgh Fire District was able to help pay for her medical training so she could become an EMT and further benefit her community and town. Because of her training, she was able to expand her opportunity and was able to work for Mobilemedic EMS for seven

years. “It taught me about the community, and it’s just so great knowing that I’m helping my community,” added Cassidy. Furthermore, when Cassidy had a chance to work in Antarctica as a firefighter, she leaped at the opportunity. She spent three years working as a firefighter in the sub-zero temperatures in Antarctica at the McMurdo Station, a United States Antarctic research station.

IN YOUR HOME Cassidy said you need to prepare for the off chance that you might need emergency personnel at your home so that you can make their life-saving efforts easier. One suggestion Cassidy had was to have a list of your medications, current medical conditions, and who are your emergency contacts. She suggested to have that list out and visible to the emergency personnel, and one good place to post the list would be the refrigerator.

everything we can to save you,” said Cassidy. She said that having the list out in the open in your home will help emergency personnel if you are left unconscious and live alone. Moreover, if you have pets, she suggested you put away your pets so they will not interfere with any live-saving actions. To further help emergency personnel, Cassidy said the house numbers outside

of your home need to be visible and need to be reflective so they can be seen during the night and from a far distance. “If I could see it from the road, it’s going to help me in getting to you lot faster,” said Cassidy. Currently, the Town of Forestburgh, through the efforts of the Forestburgh Fire Department, are looking to upgrade all the home number signs within the town. Cassidy also said if you called 911 and

for some reason, the call drops, emergency personnel and law enforcement can track you down from your Global Positioning System (GPS) location. Also, when possible, it is crucial to have your driveway clear of snow and debris. Moreover, Cassidy said another excellent idea is to leave your outside lights on or turn on your car lights so that emergency personnel can find your home faster. Also, another tip is to have a meeting place for your family outside the home when an emergency happens. This helps to identify if everyone in the house has gotten out and is safe. Cassidy said these are just some tips to keep you and emergency personnel safe, should they need to come to your home. One Forestburgh resident, Susan Hawvermale, who attended Cassidy’s talk, said, “I think Danielle provides information that we can really use and it’s so important to saving lives.” Hawvermale said she joined F4 because it has “interesting topics that we are going to learn about.” If you are interested, please see the shaded chart at left for upcoming talks for F4, which are not only open to Forestburgh but to the entire county.

“This gives us a lot of information in a little bit of time,” Cassidy said. At the meeting, Cassidy had a blank list that you could use. Those are available at the town hall for Forestburgh residents. Another suggestion is to fill out or have your “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) in a known location. “If we cannot find that DNR or if we do not see the original or a notarized original, it doesn’t mean anything.

‘A new life’

7H

Kehrley gets a kidney ... and a pancreas BY JOSEPH ABRAHAM

A

ccording to organdonor.gov, every 10 minutes another person is added to the waiting list. Fifty-five-year-old Liberty resident Dan Kehrley was once one of those people. However, after a successful transplant last November, his life has been completely changed. Here’s his story ... Kehrley had a successful video career in the Greater NYC area for several years. He lived in New Jersey and worked on several wellknown broadcasts like The Rosie O’Donnell Show and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade ... to name a few. He even won an Emmy for his work. However, after suffering a stroke in 2011, and a two-month stay that followed, Kehrley returned to Liberty, his hometown. This was not the first of his health troubles. He was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes in 1982. Approximately three years ago, he was told by one of his doctors that he needs to start looking for a new kidney because both of his were on their way to failure because of his diabetes. Kehrley also needed a new pancreas, as his wouldn’t produce insulin. He’d spend the next two years on dialysis, receiving it three times a week, which takes its toll on one’s body. He then started to research where he could get a kidney, and came across ColumbiaPresybetarian Hospital in New York City, which he was familiar with, having done work for them in the past. He then took the necessary steps to get on the hospital’s waiting list, which included heading down there with a support system –– group of family and friends –– who took classes to learn what he would be going through. It’s also to make sure Kehrley would have transportation to and from the hospital, as well as someone to take care of him while he recovered. They also did a full medical check on Kehrley. Once everything was completed, Kehrley got the green light and the wait began. According to the National Kidney CONINUED ON PAGE 8H CONTRIBUTED PHOTO

Foundation, “the average wait time for a simultaneous kidney and pancreas [transplant] is about three years.” Surprisingly, the first call Kehrley got was on his second month on the waiting list. The first call is like being called to the bullpen in baseball, where you’re supposed to just be ready. On November 6, he got the second call, which means get to the hospital and get prepared for the transplant. Kehrley hurried down and the surgery prep was started. The last person he needed to see before the procedure was the surgeon. However, when the surgeon came in, they had some bad news. They could not proceed, as the pancreas he was to receive turned out to be damaged. As you’d expect, Kehrley and his family were bummed out. However, his daughter Beth, a nursing student, told her father to be optimistic as now he’d be the first person on the call list. Kehrley returned home, and almost a week later, on the night of November 12 at approximately 9 p.m., he was told they found a

match. He’d be receiving a pancreas and kidney from a seven-year-old who passed away as a result of head trauma. Kehrley got to the hospital as fast as he could. But since the last trip didn’t go as planned, Kehrley said, “I had a little apprehension. Plus I’m a cynic at heart.” This time, however, there were no setbacks, and at 4 p.m. on November 13, he entered surgery, which took 10 hours. He briefly woke from surgery at 2:30 a.m. before going back to sleep until 8 or 9 a.m. Kehrley was home six days later, and has to periodically return for check-ups. His mother Pat praised his care saying, “I can’t say enough about Columbia- Presybetarian. They were so nice [through the whole process]. Now, about three-and-a-half months later, while not 100 percent, Kehrley says, “I’m as independent as I can be.” He says he feels much better now, and one of the positive side effects of a new pancreas is that he, as of now, can eat whatever he wants and is uncertain if he’s still diabetic. “I’ve been eating things I haven’t had since high school,” he said with a smile. Jokingly, Kehrley admits, “I

still haven’t had a milkshake though.” He added that, “I’m told a kidney is more important than a pancreas. But not to me having been diabetic for 38 years. It means eating what you want when you want and not having to constantly think about your diet.” To learn about being a donor, visit www.organdonor.gov. One person can donate up to eight organs. So theoretically, one person’s decision to be an organ donor can save up to eight lives. Kehrley still hasn’t reached out to the family of the sevenyear-old whose organs JOSEPH ABRAHAM | DEMOCRAT gave him a new lease Dan Kehrley, 55, is doing great after receiving a kidney and on life, but he hopes to pancreas transplant in November. in the future. With a donor of that age, it’s likely the donation is not something you think child’s parents made the decision to about on a daily basis. But it’s defidonate their organs. nitely something you should do. For that, Kehrley is forever grateful. When you’re on the receiving end, it “It’s a new life,” he said. “Organ changes your life 180 degrees.”

What better way to celebrate than a headstand in front of your new yoga studio.

A ‘breath’ of fresh air in Liberty STORY AND PHOTOS BY JOSEPH ABRAHAM

T

here’s a new addition to Liberty’s South Main Street. Kyle Ely Goldstein, a native of the Village of Liberty, recently opened ‘A New Breath.’ Goldstein has traveled the world and has now brought his experiences and his love for Yoga, nutrition, and an overall healthy lifestyle, back home. After a decade in New York City, Goldstein said he was called back to nature and his roots. “I wanted to bring a breath of fresh air. This county needs it, I’m from here and my heart is here.” What Goldstein was referencing

was Sullivan County’s low health ranking, believing he can help. “I wanted to bring some new mindfulness to health,” he said. “Not just physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually.” Goldstein began his spiritual journey over 10 years ago when he decided it was necessary to change his life, adopting the motto: “live life through experiences.” Since then he has completed a 112-mile trek in the mountains of Corsica, participated in a yoga/permaculture retreat in Costa Rica, attended a 10-day Vipassana silent meditation retreat in Massachusetts, and taught himself how to be an urban farmer at a startup in NYC.

In the summer of 2018, he completed his 200-hour YTT at the Ashtanga Mysore Yoga Shala in Mysore, India and is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition from New York Chiropractic College. Goldstein’s mission is to support his students and clients in developing their own practices and ultimately “identify their own inner teacher.” He is a firm believer that people have the ability to change and adjust their lifestyles in a way that makes them the best person they can be. “We believe that each and every one of you deserves a chance to better yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually,” reads

the mission statement of ‘A New Breath.’ “This holistic approach acknowledges these four ‘bodies’ allowing you to work towards creating a balance one day at a time.” ‘A New Breath’ offers several different types of Yoga classes, as well as Guided Meditation and other movement-based fitness modalities. In addition, nutritional counseling and other wellness-related services will be available. “Remember that regardless of your current physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual state, there is a place here for you,” their mission reads. “No experience required. Just open minds and hearts.” So what inspired the name?

Colorectal cancer is preventable

M

arch is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and the Cancer Services Program of the Hudson Valley (CSP) is urging everyone age 50 and older to get screened. Colorectal cancer can be prevented with regular screening, and if found early, colorectal cancer may be more easily treated. Colorectal cancer screening is covered by most health insurance and the CSP offers free colorectal cancer screenings to men and women ages 50 and older who are uninsured. “Colorectal cancer may not cause symptoms, especially at first, which is why regular screening is needed to catch the disease early when it may be easiest to treat,” says Lea Cassarino, Program Director. “In some cases, screening can prevent colorectal cancer by finding growths, called polyps, so that they can be

removed before they become cancerous. We want people to know that very effective at-home, stool-based tests are available for colorectal cancer screening, making screening easier than ever.” Stool-based (or fecal) screening tests for colorectal cancer, such as the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT), are done at home and can be used by people at average risk for colorectal cancer — meaning they have no personal or family history of colorectal cancer or pre-cancerous polyps, symptoms, genetic syndromes or other bowel issues. This test needs to be done once a year, but is easy, non-invasive, and affordable. If the FIT is positive, a followup colonoscopy must be done to confirm (or not) the presence of cancer and to remove any polyps. Approximately 9 in 10 colorectal

cancers are diagnosed after age 50. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in New York State. Each year, more than 9,000 New Yorkers get colorectal cancer and more than 3,000 die as a result. “Men and women age 50 and older should talk to their doctor about getting screened for colorectal cancer. For people without insurance, the CSP can help with screening and with treatment, if needed. Call 855277-4482 for more information,” said Ms. Cassarino. The New York State Cancer Services Program (CSP) provides breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screenings and diagnostic services at no cost to women and men who live in New York State, do not have health insurance, have health insurance with a cost share that makes

Local cancer services program can provide free tests the cost of screening too high, and meet the program rules for age and income. To find a Cancer Services Program near you call 1-866-442-CANCER (2262) or visit www.health.ny.gov/diseases/cancer/services/community_resources. The Cancer Services Program of the Hudson Valley serves six New York counties: Sullivan, Ulster, Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester and Rockland.

Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers achieves Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition

O

fficials of Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC) recently received notification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) that all eight of its primary care health centers have achieved Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition effective February 20. Standards set by the NCQA emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered coordinated care that supports access, communication and patient involvement. “PCMH Recognition has become the gold standard of quality in primary care,” stated Frederick Jackson, executive director, WMCHC. “This is a great

day for us as an organization as well as the patients we serve.” The PCMH Recognition offers patients many advantages for improvement in their care experience. It calls for care to be coordinated through the primary care provider to ensure patients receive appropriate care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand. According to WMCHC Clinical Operations & Quality Director Norma Nocilla, BSHA, LPN, CPHQ, the health centers’ administration began aggressively pursuing PCMH recognition over a year ago although they had been working towards this goal over several years. The process led to

implementation of a PatientCentered Care Coordination Model across all WMCHC primary care sites which included the hiring of additional nursing staff. Furthermore, policy revisions to improve access to care, monitoring timeliness of patient communication, improving tracking of referrals and providing follow up appointments were implemented. Jackson praised members of WMCHC’s staff for obtaining the accomplishment, “this recognition would not be possible without the hard work of the PCMH Transformation Team comprised of the primary care practice managers, administrative, quality and

clinical staff led by Norma Nocilla and Wynter Newman.” WMCHC offices which are now officially PCMH sites are: Carbondale Family Health Center, Forest City Family Health Center, Hamlin Family Health Center, Honesdale Family Health Center, Highland Physicians Family Health Center, Northern Wayne Family Health Center; Pike Family Health Center and Pinnacle Family Health Center. WMCHC is a federally qualified health center clinically affiliated with Wayne Memorial Health System, Inc.
