GOOD HEALTH: KEY TO THE JOYS OF SUMMER WE BELIEVE HEALTH IS MORE THAN JUST THE ABSENCE OF illness. It is the freedom to be fully and positively engaged with life, at any age. And while health is a year-round goal, the active living it makes possible is surely at its peak in summertime. That’s when people are out and about—at the beach, at barbecues, picnics, parades and street fairs; on the road to resorts or other vacation destinations; or simply dining at a sidewalk café or on the patio at home. They enjoy exercise activities such as running, softball, tennis, volleyball and golf that create a “virtuous cycle”: when you feel your best you are more likely to be more active, which in turn helps keep you feeling your best. Indeed, staying healthy protects the energy that fuels good times. Eating right is critical. In your diet year-round it is important to emphasize fruits, vegetables and whole grains while practicing restraint with red meat, sweets, sodas and salty junk foods. While frantic last-minute dieting to “look good on the beach” is not recommended, a steady commitment to healthy eating surely pays dividends in summer fun. Of course, summer also calls for prudence and common sense. When you’re outdoors, lessen your risk of skin cancer, the most common cancer, by applying a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF (sun protection factor) that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Lawn mower safety, safe and alcohol-free driving and boating and proper supervision of children at swimming pools are also important lessons to keep in mind. At Saint Barnabas Medical Center, the health of our community is our passion. That means not only that we provide treatment in case of illness or emergency, but also that we are proud to be a positive resource for good health. To that end we participate in hundreds of community events—you can read about some of them on page 71. Also in this magazine, as in every issue of Morris/Essex Health & Life, you will read about the compassionate, technologically advanced care we provide to patients. Let’s be healthy together.

Innovative valve replacement surgery. Because you can’t be replaced. As New Jersey’s most extensive heart care network, RWJBarnabas Health performs more Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacements (TAVR) than any hospital or health care system in the state—and our outcomes far exceed national benchmarks in safety, life expectancy, and risks of complications, too. Available at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Saint Barnabas Medical Center, patients usually go home only a few days after the procedure.

EDITOR’S NOTE

TAKE IT OUTSIDE!

DON’T TAKE OFFENSE WHEN we tell you to “Get Out!” No, we haven’t lost our cool; you know exactly what we mean. After the long, wet, gray months we’ve all suffered, our reward has finally arrived. Beautiful June is here, and the warm, sunny days it brings are best savored outside. Plus there are legitimate health benefits to being out in nature. I recently read research from Columbia University that discussed the particles— really negative ions—found in ocean waves, river rapids and waterfalls and how they act as natural antidepressants. Then there’s a study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise that reported people who walked on an outdoor track moved faster and felt better than those walking on an indoor treadmill. That’s why, starting on page 38, you’ll find four pages devoted to wonderful ways to enjoy the great outdoors in Morris and Essex counties. There are plenty of ideas for hiking, fishing, bicycling and more! And there’s more outdoor fun. Our golfloving guys should turn to page 22 for a collection of fashionable gear—the items might not improve your score, but you’ll look good when you’re teeing off. Want another way to relish the outdoors? Host the perfect backyard cookout for family and friends—find out how on page 52 (recipes included!). There’s no such thing as having too much fun, but being outside does come with certain responsibilites. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends about a shot glass worth of sunscreen is needed to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Read about this and other health tips on page 26. Of course, there’s plenty more in this issue. If you’re thinking of taking a quick getaway trip, turn to page 50 to learn what you need to know about beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Then read “Sleep Well, Do Good” on page 44, a profile on Chatham’s own Scott and Missy Tannen, whose line of luxury linens has received a presidential stamp of approval. Enjoy these and all the other articles in this issue. Bring it to the park or the beach, then have some outdoor fun when you’re done reading!

Let ASID update your space

You wouldn’t dare wear clothes from 1995, so why would you let your home become outdated? The professionals at the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), which includes designers from Morris and Essex counties, want to help homeowners turn drab spaces into fab and offer tips to update a room without breaking the bank. Running through June, “Design Experience…Impacting Lives Through Professional Interior Design” matches clients with an ASID pro, who’ll work some magic. Here’s how: Homeowners who sign up at the ASID website will be paired with an interior designer and schedule a consultation. Once on site, the designers will assess and offer consumers design advice, from repainting walls and replacing carpets to knocking down walls and rebuilding fireplaces. The advice is intended to improve aesthetics and boost home values. Each session is $250 an hour. Money raised through this program will benefit future ASID progams. Ready for a change? Check out nj.asid.org for more details.

FULL STEAM AHEAD The Montville Library offers a fun approach to learning for students in grades 6 through 12 with its STEAM program. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math, and the library provides various STEAM-based projects for teens every month. Past projects tasked students with experimenting with macrophotography, taste-testing chocolate, co-sponsoring a movie about global warming and holding a Lego competition. The program is run by Young Adult and Community Services Librarian Jeff Cupo. To register for the program, visit montvillelibrary.org.

KUDOS

Essex County student Megan Hackett competed on an episode of Food Network’s “Chopped Junior” that aired April 11. Hackett had plans to use the $10,000 grand prize to start an after-school program for inner-city kids to experience the arts. Although the fifth-grader didn’t win the competition, she was the runner-up, besting two other junior chefs and impressing the judges with her culinary creativity. Essex County residents supported Hackett at a viewing party at SuzyQue’s BBQ and Bar in West Orange. When the talented 10-yearold isn’t cooking, she’s acting and singing.

COMEBACK

Playa Bowls, a Belmarbased company, is proving that its health-conscious menu isn’t just for the Shore crowd. The restaurant recently opened its first Essex County location in Montclair, and another is planned for Millburn. Playa Bowls is known for acai bowls, which are essentially thick smoothies in a bowl topped with fresh fruit and healthy treats. (Try one with chia seeds, almond butter and granola.) But there’s plenty more: The menu also has green (kale) bowls, oatmeal, juices and soups. Don’t want to stand in line? You can order your bowl online and pick it up at the Montclair store when you’re ready. Now that’s a treat! Playa Bowls, 19 Church St., Montclair, 973.746.0817; playabowls.com

It takes a village…

Popular plus-size clothing store Ashley Stewart recently made a return to Newark, much to the delight of loyal customers who saw its previous location on Broad Street close several years ago. The retailer was forced to close several under-performing stores in recent years but is now thriving again. At its new store, located in the Springfield Avenue Marketplace, customers can enjoy wi-fi, a lounge area with a stage for modeling outfits for friends, a private area that houses fitting rooms and the lingerie section, and of course a wide range of work, casual and evening wear for women sizes 12 to 26. Visit ashleystewart.com for store hours and more details.

The Montclair Foundation awarded a $3,500 grant to Laptop Upcycle, which runs a program that provides free laptops to underserved students in Montclair.

WELCOME TO

Denville

IT’S “THE HUB OF MORRIS COUNTY,” BUT YOU WON’T WANT TO LEAVE THIS CHARMING TOWN. PUT DOWN ROOTS IN DENVILLE FOR A STRONG SENSE of community and easy access to the surrounding area. Known as the “Hub of Morris County,” thanks to its convenient location at the center of the county and along major transportation routes (routes 10, 53, 46 and 80, for example), it’s also easy to get to Manhattan from Denville on the train to Penn Station or the Lakeland Bus Lines’ service to Port Authority. You may not be in a hurry to leave Denville any time soon though. The township boasts 16,635 residents who are full of pride for their home, celebrating with holiday parades, summer festivals and other community events such as a Polar Plunge (which raised money to revamp a local playground), an Easter egg hunt and the annual Rockaway River Cleanup. Denville is also rich in history. The Lenape Indian tribe traversed the land before Dutch and English settlers came to the area around 1690. Several forges and mills were erected,

and Denville village sprang up around the Job Allen Iron Works on the Rockaway River before eventually growing into the bustling community that it is today. Denville is a great place to live or visit if you enjoy spending time outdoors. The township is home to 11 bodies of water, including the popular Cedar Lake, Indian Lake, Rock Ridge and Lake Arrowhead. There is also the 547-acre Tourne County Park, which boasts a fantastic view of the New York City skyline from its peak. Morris County Farms is a favorite spot to indulge one’s green thumb, as it has beautiful greenhouses and grounds. If you’re more of an indoors person, never fear. You won’t be bored in Denville. The Shoppes at Union Hill offers favorite mall stores like Francesca’s, Janie and Jack and Banana Republic, while bustling downtown Denville has plenty of charming boutiques, shops and spas, including newcomer Butter & Velvet, Sweet Expressions, Sisters, A&R Interiors and The Urban Muse.

“IT IS MUCH MORE CONVENIENT AND LESS DISRUPTIVE OF THE PATIENT’S LIFE.” —ALISON GRANN, M.D.

ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO, HEAVY SMOKER LINDA ARZINGER of Little Ferry had part of her cancerous left lung removed. She quit smoking after the surgery, but in April 2016 a follow-up imaging scan revealed a spot on the remaining part of the lung. The cancer had returned. At 78, with compromised breathing ability, the widowed mother of two and grandmother of four was not a good candidate for more surgery. Another treatment, however, was just right. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) uses high doses of precisely targeted radiation to remove cancerous tumors. A state-ofthe-art radiation system called CyberKnife, available at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, delivers this therapy to hard-toreach tumors anywhere in the body, including the lung but also the brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney and the prostate in men. This device can employ higher doses of radiation, thanks to advanced computer guidance software that locks onto a cancerous lesion and follows it as it naturally moves, even slightly. Because of the movements of breathing, this is especially useful in treating lung cancer. “The machine takes images every 15 to 30 seconds and tracks the respiration cycle,” says Alison Grann, M.D., chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Saint Barnabas. “As you would imagine, whenever you take a breath the lung tumor moves.” CyberKnife monitors the location of the tumor in real time to ensure that high doses of radiation go to the tumor and avoid critical nearby structures such as the esophagus and the spinal cord. “This minimizes the chance of irradiating surrounding healthy tissue,” she says. CyberKnife is able to deliver radiation at maximum strength and accuracy thanks to another technological advantage it has over traditional delivery systems. Most systems can rotate only 180 degrees in one plane around the patient, but CyberKnife is situated on a robotic arm, which can rotate a full 360 degrees and along any plane. It can therefore deliver the radiation from any direction and at any angle. Because of these features, radiation can be delivered in higher doses. That means each session is longer—from 30 to 60 minutes, as opposed to about 10 minutes for traditional treatment—but fewer sessions are required. Typically, patients need 30 treatments over six weeks, but CyberKnife delivers the same amount of radiation in three to five sessions. “It is much more effective and less disruptive Alison Grann, M.D.

of the patient’s life,” Dr. Grann says. This treatment is also chosen in place of surgery for patients who either cannot have surgery or choose not to. SBRT has been used to treat earlystage lung cancer for the past half-dozen years or so, she says. “Traditional types and dosages of radiation were ineffective at Linda Arzinger curing or controlling early-stage lung cancer. In addition, many of these patients have comorbid conditions that rule out surgery. CyberKnife has been shown to have survival rates above 90 percent, and that’s really oustanding.” Arzinger received five CyberKnife treatments in July 2016. “They showed me the machine before I started,” she recalls. “It’s a very interesting procedure. You’re in this big room all by yourself, and you lie on a table, fully dressed. It was scary only because I was all by myself, but they play music and talk to you, and you look up and see nice flowers painted on the ceiling.” She says each of her sessions took exactly 49 minutes. “I timed them,” she says. “You have to try to lie still, but it doesn’t hurt at all. It goes over you and keeps moving and you hear some beeps.” “She handled her treatment very well and was doing great when we saw her nine months after treatment,” Dr. Grann says. “I would say there is a high probability she is cured.” Arzinger couldn’t be happier. “They say the machine did what they wanted it to do,” she says. “It stopped the cancer. I’m fine.” She continues to work one day a week as a payroll specialist for a dentist who employed her for 28 years. She is grateful for the care she received at Saint Barnabas. “The staff couldn’t be nicer,” she says. “They worked to schedule my treatments around a family trip to Bermuda. I finished on a Wednesday and drove to Boston on Thursday to go on the cruise.” Arzinger was advised that the treatments might leave her feeling fatigued on her trip. “But I was fine,” she says. “I did almost everything the kids did. I didn’t go cliff jumping, but I did everything else.”

FASTER breast

findings NOW WOMEN CAN GET THEIR MAMMOGRAM RESULTS WITHIN HOURS.

MAMMOGRAPHY IS ALMOST ALWAYS THE INITIAL IMAGING study used for the detection of breast cancer. It’s not perfect, but it offers a potentially lifesaving benefit in return for a few moments’ physical discomfort—and most women like that deal. What they don’t like is the suspense. “The worst part of a mammogram isn’t being pressed between the plates to get the image; it’s waiting for the results,” says Linda Sanders, M.D., medical director of the Breast Center at the Saint Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center. But now that wait is dramatically shorter. The Breast Center recently implemented a faster way to get mammogram results to patients—and end the worry. As soon as the radiologist interprets the test and writes the report into the patient’s electronic medical record, a piece of software called PenConnect generates an email to the patient. Its wording is the same as that of the letter sent by postal mail. That means patients now can receive their results the same day or, if they’re screened in the evening or on the weekend, the next business day. The mail can take up to a week, so this approach is much quicker. Many women are frightened by what they may learn from a mammogram. They may have a personal history of breast cancer or family members who had it. So it is helpful to end the suspense as quickly as possible. Because 90 percent of mammograms turn out to be normal, according to Dr. Sanders, most women will be reassured when they get their results. Of course, even a positive finding doesn’t necessarily mean you have cancer, but for that minority further testing is required. For most women, why delay good news? “As a radiologist, I love it,” Dr. Sanders says of the new system. “It cuts the waiting time for results to an average of five to six hours. Some women get the email by mid-morning and can call us immediately to schedule their next step, if needed. Some even turn around and come back the same day. I’m thrilled that we can offer this service.” The email service, which is password-protected to ensure patient privacy, is entirely optional; patients are given a registration

30

card and instructions by the front desk staff, who can also help them understand the process. Since PenConnect became available in January, about 80 percent of patients have opted to receive their results through the email Stephen P. Zieniewicz, Linda Sanders, M.D. system. The letter, whether FACHE, president, CEO sent electronically or by “snail mail,” is very generic, Dr. Sanders explains. “It never says anything other than that the mammogram is normal or that we have a finding that needs additional screening,” she says. Included in the letter is the phone number for the nurse line, so patients can call with questions immediately.

Start annual mammograms at 40, breast doctor advises When should women get a mammogram? How often? The guidelines from various medical groups sometimes change and conflict. Linda Sanders, M.D., medical director of the Breast Center at the Saint Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center, keeps it simple. She recommends that all women have an annual mammogram beginning at age 40. “No question,” she says. “But there are still many women we don’t reach with that recommendation, and that is sad. Once women are educated that they are all at risk for breast cancer and that they should have a yearly mammogram, it becomes a routine health screening.” “We help patients understand the results and go through the report with them,” says Joanne Persing, assistant director for Breast and Osteoporosis Services. “The doctors love that too. They are busy, and they appreciate knowing that their patient has the results and can call a nurse for the next step. We have received good feedback from doctors and patients.” PenConnect is not the only new feature at the Breast Center. The center recently added a second three-dimensional tomography scanner for the most accurate mammogram screening, tomosynthesis. The scans it produces are better able to determine whether an irregularity in the breast tissue is actually cancer or a “false positive,” Dr. Sanders says. “The major benefit is that it reduces callbacks,” she says. “Tomosynthesis is also better at finding hidden nodules and architectural distortions in dense breast tissue.”

Medicare covers this enhanced screening, but many private insurance policies do not. Patients with such coverage can purchase it for a small fee if they ask for it, Dr. Sanders says. Women can take advantage of one of the center’s nurses for help understanding their options, Persing explains: “Nurses have played an important role since the center opened in 1998. If a patient needs further studies or a surgical appointment, a nurse will review everything with the radiologist and serve as a resource for the patient and the referring physician.” “This technology provides our patients with tremendous peace of mind as they receive their resutls much more quickly,” states Stephen P. Zieniewicz, FACHE, president and CEO, Saint Barnabas Medical Center. “For those individuals who need follow-up, it expedites communication and the scheduling of any additional testing or treatment.”

QUICK ACTION COULD SAVE YOUR BRAIN WITH STROKE, MINUTES COUNT. NOW A NEW CT SCANNER PROVIDES IMAGES MORE RAPIDLY, SPEEDING TREATMENT. EVERY YEAR MORE THAN 795,000 people in the United States suffer a stroke—it’s the fifth leading cause of death and the primary cause of adult disability. Doctors who treat stroke have an expression that reminds them of perhaps the most important aspect of the disease: “Time is brain.” The longer it takes to recognize that a stroke is occurring and to begin treatment, the more likely it is that brain tissue will be compromised. “Every minute while you’re having a stroke, about 1.9 million brain cells die,” says Danielle Haskins, M.D., medical director of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Depending on where in the brain the stroke occurs, those cells may control speech, hearing, vision, movement, cognition or even such vital life functions as breathing and heartbeat. A proper diagnosis can allow stroke care providers to chart the most effective course of treatment. And the Medical Center recently acquired a new piece of diagnostic equipment to speed that process substantially.   The hospital’s new 256-slice computed tomography (CT) scanner can take many more “slices,” or images of the brain, than a traditional CT scanner—and take them much more quickly. “The faster we get the scan done, the faster we are able to treat the patient,” Dr. Haskins says. In

32

addition, some types of CT scans require that a contrast dye be injected into the brain to make vessels within it visible. “With this new scanner we are able to use a lower dosage of the contrast dye and also less radiation,” she says. The new scanner is just the latest in the offerings at the Comprehensive Stroke Center. As a state-designated and Joint Commission-certified advanced primary stroke center, explains Susan Quimby, stroke nurse practitioner and program director, “we have 24/7 coverage by a stroke team that consists of a neurologist, adult and pediatric neurosurgeons, a medical resident and a nurse. We can treat people with acute strokes with the clot-busting medication tPA [tissue plasminogen activator], and our neurosurgeons have the ability to treat strokes by directly removing the clot from blocked arteries.” The center also offers telemedicine services for patients who need to be seen immediately by a neurologist far from the hospital. The physician can log into his or her home computer and “examine” the patient through the computer terminal in the treatment room. “The doctor can do a complete assessment of the patient with a medical resident, who is at the bedside,” Quimby says.  The Saint Barnabas Stroke Center

is unique in its use of a Transition Discharge Center. That is a nurse practitioner-run clinic that sees all stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA) patients one week after discharge Danielle Haskins, M.D. from the hospital or a rehabilitation facility. “Being in the hospital can be overwhelming and confusing for patients and caregivers, so it is during this one-hour encounter with a nurse practitioner after discharge that they’re given complete education including a review of medications, test results, signs and symptoms of stroke, and patient-specific risk factors,” Quimby says. “That way we ensure appropriate follow-up. We are also expanding our transition program into the rehabs within the community—a nurse practitioner will see the patients while they are still admitted in rehab.” The center also offers a variety of services, education and outreach for stroke awareness to staff, patients and their families and the community. Says Dr. Haskins: “The Stroke Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center provides the highest level of care for stroke patients and their families in the region.”

IS IT A STROKE? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Everyone should know the signs and symptoms of stroke, says Danielle Haskins, M.D., medical director of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. “The key to stroke is sudden onset,” she says. In particular, she means: n Sudden onset of weakness, usually on one side of the body. n Sudden onset of inability to speak or understand. n Sudden onset of numbness or tingling, usually on one side of the body. n Sudden onset of vision loss. n Sudden onset of confusion. One of the quickest and easiest ways to detect a stroke is to remember the acronym FAST. Look for these signs: n F is for Face: When you smile, one side of your face droops. n A is for Arm: One arm is weaker than the other. n S is for Speech: Your speech sounds slurred or you cannot get words out. n T is for Time, which is a reminder to call 911. “If you or someone you are with is suddenly experiencing stroke symptoms, call 911 immediately and go to the nearest hospital,” says Susan Quimby, stroke nurse practitioner and program director at the center. “The faster someone experiencing stroke symptoms gets to the hospital, the more likely it is that treatment can reverse the stroke’s effects.”

A BUSY FACILITY MAKES NEWS AS THESE REPORTS ATTEST, THERE’S A LOT GOING ON AT SAINT BARNABAS MEDICAL CENTER.

11 A’S IN A ROW Saint Barnabas Medical Center recently received an “A” rating for safety and quality from the Leapfrog Group. It was the 11th survey in which SBMC received the highest rating, making it the only hospital in Essex County and one of just 63 in the nation to do so. The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization committed to improving the quality and safety of American health care. It was founded in 2000 by large employers and other purchasers of health care. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, the group’s other main initiative, assigns letter grades to hospitals based on their record of patient safety, helping consumers protect themselves and their families from errors, injuries, accidents and infections. Its flagship survey, the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, collects and reports hospital performance, which helps purchasers to find the highest-value care and gives consumers pertinent information to make informed decisions. This is widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious distinctions a hospital can receive in the U.S., and in 2016, Saint Barnabas Medical Center was named a Top Hospital for the third consecutive year, showcasing the Medical Center’s commitment to patient safety and quality. A WORLDWIDE LEADER IN HEPATITIS HEALTH CARE Su Wang, M.D., medical director of the Center for Asian Health, was recently appointed an executive board member for the World Hepatitis Alliance. As a board member, Dr. Wang will be leading the American region in advocating for those living with hepatitis and in the global goal to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030, as adopted by the World Health Organization in 2016.

ACCREDITATIONS AND CERTIFICATIONS Earning a new or renewed credential from national leadership organizations is a habit for Saint Barnabas Medical Center, but it’s still a source of pride each time it happens. Here are four recent instances: n The Imaging Center at the Saint Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center recently received accreditation from the American College of Radiology in stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided biopsy. As the gold standard in medical imaging, these accreditations demonstrate the hospital’s commitment to providing the safest and best care possible to patients and their families, payers and referring physicians. n The Epilepsy Center of the Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery at Saint Barnabas has been reaccredited as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center, a distinction it has held since 2009. The designation demonstrates that the center provides the highest level of medical care, surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy. n The Asthma Education Center at SBMC is the second program in the nation to receive certification from the American Association for Respiratory Care and the Asthma Self-Management Education Program. n The Cancer Center at Saint Barnabas received recertification by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative Certification Program (QOPI), an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. QOPI certification reflects a commitment to providing quality care to oncology patients and their families.

A NEW SURGEON-IN-CHIEF Stuart R. Geffner, M.D., MS-HCM, FACS, was recently named surgeonin-chief and chairman of the Department of Surgery at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. “Dr. Geffner was selected after a comprehensive national search,” says Stephen P. Zieniewicz, the Medical Center’s president. “He has a proven track record of accomplishment. His vision for the future of perioperative services and our surgical residency program is very exciting and will continue to elevate our program both regionally and nationally.” Dr. Geffner has performed more than two thousand renal transplants and more than one thousand living-donor surgeries as director of Transplant Surgery for the Division of Renal and Pancreas Transplant at Saint Barnabas. He has helped to build the program into one of the largest renal and pancreas transplant centers in the United States. He also maintains an active clinical practice in transplant surgery, general surgery and advanced laparoscopic surgery. The new surgeon-in-chief received his undergraduate degree in bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania and his medical degree from the New Jersey Medical School. He completed his general surgery residency at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, then a two-year fellowship in abdominal organ transplant surgery at the University of Wisconsin. In 2015, Dr. Geffner received a master of science degree in healthcare management from the Harvard University School of Public Health. A published author, he has made many presentations at national and international surgical conferences. In partnership with Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, Dr. Geffner pioneered “Live from Kidney Transplant,” a series of live, interactive video telecasts of renal transplant surgery that have been watched by more than 15,000 high school students.

FISHING

BIRD-WATCHING If you go early in the morning, our area offers some great spots for ogling a wide variety of winged species during breeding season. Learn more at njaudubon.org. Clinton Road (West Miford): Located at the center of Newark’s 35,000-acre Pequannock Watershed, the Clinton Reservoir and surrounding area is home to more than 140 winged species. Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge (Basking Ridge): Fewer than 30 miles from Times Square, this 7,600-acre site is a major spring and fall migration destination for many species. It provides habitat for more than 240 species of birds, and several endangered birds breed here including American bitterns and northern harriers. Mills Reservation (Cedar Grove): This 150-acre oasis with scenic views comes alive each spring with wave after wave of migrating warblers and hawks. Montclair Hawk Lookout (Montclair): You can visit this observation platform during autumn months to view hawks in flight. October is the most interesting month to visit because it offers the greatest diversity of hawk species—from red-tailed to redshouldered.

There are plenty of places to cast your line in Morris and Essex counties. (Be sure to get your fishing license at njfishandwild life.com if you are between the ages of 16 and 69.) Here are a few of our favorites. Lake Hopatcong, the largest lake in the state, offers excellent year-round fishing. In the summer you’re likely to reel in brown, rainbow and brook trout. In the winter, you can try your hand at ice fishing for perch and pickerel. Both largemouth and smallmouth bass are abundant at Budd Lake, where you can fish from a boat as well as a brand-new, 100-foot pier. You can also go boat-free at Branch Brook Park Lake in Newark, Diamond Mill Pond in Millburn, India Brook in Mendham and Verona Park Lake in Verona, all of which are stocked with trout in the spring. Other options: Burnham Park Pond in Morristown, Clarks Pond in Bloomfield and Sunrise Lake in Mendham.

BIKING Both serious mountain bikers and families are sure to find their ideal biking trail here. Boasting a total of eight trails, Mahlon Dickerson Reservation in Jefferson Township is appropriate for riders of all ages and abilities. Another option is the Flanders Park bike path in Flanders, which has it all—paved paths, training-wheel paths and a play area for the kids. If you don’t like crowds, pedal over to Loantaka Brook Reservation in Morristown where you can stay cool during hot summer days under the trees and enjoy the marked paths. Looking for a more challenging ride? Rated as a moderate trail for mountain bikers, the West Essex “Rail” Trail is a 5.5-mile trail near Little Falls. Enjoy obstacles created by fellow mountain bikers and explore secret side trails. Visit Hugh Force Park in Dover and experience a fresh dirt trail. For a full-body workout, head to the Traction Line Recreation Trail in Morristown, which features 10 fitness stations along the two-mile trail that runs parallel to the NJT tracks.

THE ART OF CRAFTS

FROM PUBS AND RESTAURANTS TO THE DINNER TABLE AT HOME, LOCAL BREWERS ARE RAISING THE BAR WITH THEIR ARTISANAL BEERS. JOIN US ON THIS BEER CRAWL THROUGH MORRIS AND ESSEX AND SEE WHERE THE INVENTIVE AND DELICIOUS DRINKS ARE MADE. BY DARIUS AMOS IT’S TIME TO GET HOPPING, BEER FANS, BECAUSE YOU don’t want to miss what’s brewing in Morris and Essex counties. Where wine once ruled, craft beers are quickly taking over—you can find them served in fine dining establishments as well as on tap in your favorite neighborhood bar. Better yet, you can actually visit the sites where these local brews are conceived and produced. That’s what thousands have learned at joints like Magnify Brewing in Fairfield, which opened in Morris County two years ago and has been growing in popularity and size (owner Eric Ruta recently leased a Pequannock building for storage) ever since. There, customers can imbibe imaginative brews—the names of the full-bodied stouts, India pale ales and Belgianinspired pilsners are scribbled on a chalkboard adjacent to the bar. Once customers make their selections, bartenders pour the frothy libations into a variety of containers, including Mason jars, tulips and growlers. Some are instant hits (Break the Bank imperial IPA), while others are an acquired taste (Point of Divergence stout with wine yeast). Environment is just as important as the beer. Magnify promotes personal interaction. There are no televisions; instead a large selection of board games like Connect 4 and Trivial Pursuit are available to pass the time. “We created a place with a unique and inviting atmosphere,” notes Ruta. “We believe our tasting room completes our vision of becoming not only a place that brews great beer, but a great place to enjoy a fresh pint as well.” Pints, flights and growlers are also filled in nearby Cricket Hill Brewery, also in Fairfield. Locals love the brewery’s East Coast Lager and seasonal ales (Try the Jersey Summer Breakfast Ale!), conceived and created by a team led by founder and co-owner Rick Reed. You’ll find a similar atmosphere and operation at the High Point

Brewery in Butler, home of the Ramstein brand. Ramstein, which is in its 20th year, is found in New Jersey bars and local stores, but grabbing a brew in the taproom is an experience. A trip to the campus of multiple red-brick buildings is a must for beer connoisseurs, as the conversation is always as good as the drink. “Coming here after work is a fairly new tradition of mine,” notes Bryan McManus, a 36-year-old from nearby Wayne. “There is always something new to try on the menu, which I like, and the Ramstein name always ensures quality. Right now, the Spin IPA is my choice.” High Point, like many other craft breweries, offers tours of the facility and allows events and private parties. Chatham’s Twin Elephant Brewing Company currently doesn’t rent its space for private events, but groups are welcome in the taproom and on brewery tours. “I’ve been to Twin Elephant a few times,” says McManus, “and the menu always has something I like. They have very limited tasting room hours (Friday and Saturdays only), but it’s definitely worth checking out.” Want something to nosh on while you drink? You won’t find any appetizers or large menu items at these bars—though you might spy a small bowl of pretzels—but customers are welcome to bring their own treats or even call for delivery while they’re at the brewery. If you want to eat while chugging a fine brew, several establishments like Cloverleaf Tavern in Caldwell or the Morris Tap & Grill in Randolph boast craft-beer-dominated drink menus. So just why is the craft beer industry booming? Thank legislators, who about five years ago passed a law permitting beer makers to sell their beverages by the glass without a conventional liquor license. It was a big step for small-scale operations. It also allowed local brewers to deliver their products to liquor stores, bars and restaurants themselves and bypass expensive truckers.

SLEEP WELL, DO GOOD SCOTT AND MISSY TANNEN CAN SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING THEIR LUXURY SHEETS ARE CHANGING THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY. BY LIZ DONOVAN proceeds to Not For Sale, an anti–human trafficking organization. Here they tell us about their business methods—and why New Jersey is the best place to start. Your sheets feel and look beautiful, but the way they’re made is just as appealing as their quality. Why is transparency in manufacturing so important to you? Scott Tannen: It’s really simple: You have a responsibility to the customer to tell what you’re selling. Since the Internet gave us access to information, everyone has the power to be an educated consumer. If you fast-forward a few years, I don’t think there’s going to be an alternative to doing business with transparency and ethical practices. Consumers are getting smarter and have more ability to understand what’s going on. What advice do you have for purchasing sheets? Missy Tannen: I think the biggest mistake is letting yourself be bombarded with all the marketing. For instance, a lot of people rely on thread count as an indication of quality, but it’s just a buzzword—it’s a measure of

the threads per square inch. What’s more important is that the cotton you’re using is fine, high-quality 100 percent cotton. Cotton is a natural fabric, and as far as we’ve experienced, nothing synthetic can come close to its durability, softness and breathability. Cotton bedding is sourced from a natural crop so keep in mind the adage of “you get what you pay for.” Why did you decide to set up shop in New Jersey? What do you like about the Garden State? Scott: New Jersey’s awesome! I grew up in Bernardsville, and now we live in Chatham. Our business was originally in Chatham too, but we moved to Summit because we outgrew our office space. Missy: New Jersey has so much to offer—skiing in the winter, the Jersey Shore in the summer, and the city whenever you want. Are there any local businesses you frequent? Missy: The Tannen family loves to eat, and we’re very lucky to have some

THEY WERE POLITICAL RIVALS BUT there’s one thing the Clintons and the Bushes agreed on—where they get their bed sheets. All three political families (including Bush Sr. and George W.) have purchased their linens from Boll & Branch. There, husband-and-wife team and Chatham residents Scott and Missy Tannen have set up shop for their line of organic, Fair Trade luxury sheets and towels. But the presidential stamp of approval is just another feather in their hats. Their biggest achievement is running a successful business while upholding ethical practices in an industry often tainted with labor violations and human trafficking. It all started four years ago when the Tannens, dismayed by a lack of transparency while trying to buy bed sheets, opted to create their own line. They selected farmers to grow organic cotton in India and worked one-on-one with textile factories to pay workers a fair wage. The result is a silky and sustainable sheet that buyers can feel good about. Also, the Tannens donate a portion of

amazing spots right in our backyard. On weekends, we get subs from Pascarella Brothers or Chatham Sandwich Shop. Of course, a stellar soccer performance by any of the Tannen girls almost always earns a trip to Magic Fountain in Summit for dessert.

Do you ever draw inspiration from the area or work with local artists? Missy: We work closely with Cory Connor, a designer in Chatham. Her style is very similar to mine. Ever since the beginning, I would rely on her for trending patterns, colors and prints. Scott: Also, there are so many homes here owned by people with unique decorating tastes. We do almost all of our photography for our website in homes from the area, so it’s a wink and a nod to where we’re from. Did you expect to see this much success when you started the business? Scott: Missy had no idea! I would say I hoped we would, but I don’t think you could have ever predicted what’s happened with a straight face. Missy: What’s neat to me is that we sold out our inventory in the first six weeks, so we called one of the factories and said we needed to make more. And we learned that already in that amount of time, the business had made an impact on the workers. We were making it sustainable for them to have income and a quality-of-life change. A portion of the proceeds from your business benefit Not For Sale. Why did you specifically select this group? Scott: Human trafficking presents itself in many ways, including in the form

of forced labor. When we started, we didn’t realize the scale of the impact we could have by creating good jobs, but unfortunately a lot of people don’t have access to that opportunity. Groups like Not For Sale work on the other end of the spectrum to help give people a way to work back upstream so their vulnerability can be reduced. Your three girls play a small role in the company and even have their own business cards. How do you involve them in the business, and what lessons do you hope to teach them? Missy: They’ve been involved during the whole natural progression of the business. They helped us through naming the company and picking the colors. Our oldest went with us to India to see the factory, and when we’re Skyping with the factory, they’re there for that. We have so much pride in what we do as a family. Scott: You should see them hand out the business cards. They are the dream team. They feel so connected to the brand, and they are learning they can grow up and do anything they put their minds to.

From top left: Boll & Branch manufactures fine-cotton towels that have won the approval of three U.S. presidents as well as Lucy the goldendoodle; Missy and Scott Tannen, along with their daughter Sophie, visit the company’s staff in India. Using high-quality 100 percent cotton is one of the most important factors that goes into the production of luxury linens.

What advice would you give entrepreneurs who are just starting out? Scott: Commit to the long haul. Starting a business is extremely difficult emotionally, financially and personally. But, often what’s easiest isn’t what’s best or ultimately right. When you’re down or struggling, there always seems to be a shortcut. Try not to take it. Fight on and see your dream become a reality. The rewards are absolutely worth it. MORRIS/ESSEX HE ALTH & LIFE

LET’S GO DUTCH TURN OFF THAT PHONE AND ENJOY THE RUSTIC SIGHTS AND TEMPTING TASTES OF PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH COUNTRY, SURPRISINGLY CLOSE TO HOME. BY RITA GUARNA Amish Country is famous for its smorgasbords, or all-you-can-eat buffets, where little ones who are always hungry will get their fill. At the Plain and Fancy Restaurant (part of the eponymous farm), food is served “family style.” That means you’ll be seated at a random table with strangers. You’ll pass platters around the table and make small talk with people with whom you might have little, if anything, in common. And yet, it’s surprisingly pleasant to have an amicable chat with those whose views are not our own. Could this be the lost art of conversation? With that conversation you’ll get great fried chicken, carved roast beef, ham, corn bread, bread pudding, sausages, veggies and baked goods. Here too you can catch “Jacob’s Choice,” a short flick that explains what it means to be Amish. Or check out the Sight and Sound Theater where Bible stories—think Samson, Moses, Jonah—are brought to life on stage. And speaking of food, don’t miss a visit to the city’s Central Market. The Romanesque-style building was constructed in 1889 and is home to ethnic foods, sweets (shoofly pie, anyone?), cured meats, plus plenty of fruits and veggies. It’s the oldest continuously operating farmers’ market in the U.S. If you prefer an attraction with your shoofly pie, check out Dutch Haven. Yes, it looks like a tourist trap with its big windmill on the roof, but it sells more pies than any other bakery in Lancaster

County. (Some folks swear that it’s the perfect souvenir.) Check out the Hans Herr House and Eastern Woodland Longhouse. Built in 1719, the house is the oldest building in the county. Guides point out a still-intact wood and iron steamer trunk, belonging to one of the original immigrant occupants. Leave enough time to visit the Native American Longhouse on the property. The 62-foot-long, 20-footwide structure was recreated to depict life during the early years of European settlement. Train buffs will love the Strasburg Rail Road in nearby Strasburg. Hop aboard for a steam-powered 45-minute meander through the charming countryside. Once the kids are good and tired (isn’t that why you brought Grandma?), Mom and Dad might want to drop by one of the area’s two outlet shopping malls. Better yet, check out downtown Lancaster, its streets teeming with chic art galleries, boutiques—antiques, jewelry, even midcentury furniture—and restaurants. There’s a BYO French bistro, Citronnelle, or Luca, where you’ll find Italian favorites and wood-fire-ovencooked pizzas. The Federal Tap House features more than 100 beers on tap and great pub grub, presented by superattentive servers. And the Horse Inn, a horse-stable-turned gastropub, is a hotspot with good food and sips. When it’s time to return home, you’ll leave the buggies behind—but keep that new perspective.

IF YOU’RE SHORT ON TIME (AND frequent flyer miles) and want to show your family a different world without traveling too far, consider Lancaster, Pennsylvania. About 110 miles from western Morris County, this city at the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country may be your quickest ticket out of the 21st century. At first glance, the kids might not think cows nibbling on grass, bearded men in straw hats and apron-andbonnet-clad girls are all that cool. But the Amish, who’ve been “Witnessed” by Harrison Ford (in the 1985 movie of that name) and spoofed on David Letterman’s TV show aren’t the only “attraction.” (And truth be told, they are cool.) “Pennsylvania Dutch” is a misnomer, as the Amish came here in the early 18th century from Switzerland, not Holland. Along with the Quakers, Mennonites and others, they came to William Penn’s land seeking religious freedom. They’re a simple people who preach pacifism, eschew electricity (the better to avoid the influences of computers and TV) and encourage members to marry within the flock. One of the best ways to learn about them and see the countryside is to take a buggy ride. We took one with Aaron and Jessica’s Buggy Rides, conveniently located at the Plain and Fancy Farm. Guides—ours was a lovely young woman named Esther—are very open about their lifestyle and happy to answer questions.

Clockwise from top: Lucky visitors will catch a glimpse of an Amish buggy traversing the Pennsylvania countryside. Colonial life is replicated at the 1719 Hans Herr House, the oldest surviving house in Lancaster County. Board the Strasburg Rail Road for a 45-minute ride on an authentic coal-burning steam train. The Longhouse is a replica of a Native American home built on the grounds of the Hans Herr House to honor Pennsylvania’s native people. There are more than 25 different Amish, Mennonite and Brethren church groups in Lancaster County. At the Intercourse Pretzel Factory, hard pretzels are still twisted by hand.

DR. FRANK’S FAVORITE BARBECUE RIBS Serves: 6 INGREDIENTS n½ cup brown sugar, packed n ½ cup blueberry jam n 1 Tbs. smoked paprika n2 tsp. salt n 1 tsp. ground white pepper n1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes n2 garlic cloves, minced n 2 cups barbecue sauce (bottled or homemade) n 4 lbs. baby-back-style pork ribs DIRECTIONS In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together all the ingredients except the ribs, bring the sauce to a simmer, and continue to cook for 10 minutes, stirring often. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the sauce to cool on the stovetop while you prepare the pork ribs. You will need to peel the membranes off the ribs. You can have your butcher do this, or you can do it yourself. Slide a small sharp knife under the silver skin, or membrane, move it sideways along the length of the ribs, then grab the loosened skin with a paper towel and remove it. Combine the ribs with half of the cooled sauce in a large zip-top plastic bag. You may need several bags to hold the ribs; if so, divide the sauce into equal parts per bag. Seal the bags and massage the sauce to cover the meat and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Reserve the remaining half of the sauce for basting on the grill.

Cooking the ribs in foil over low heat will steam them and ensure that they don’t burn. Then you take them out and do them on higher heat to make a nice bark on them. It makes them nice and crispy on the outside and moist on the inside.” Chef Laura Granston, Kings Food Markets, Parsippany

Preheat a grill to low heat. Remove the marinated ribs from the plastic bags and discard the marinade in the bags. Wrap the ribs in heavy-duty aluminum foil and seal the edges, making several sealed packages. Place the aluminum foil packages on the grill and cook for 45 minutes, turning the packages every 10 to 15 minutes. Be careful not to let them burn. Remove the ribs from the grill, then remove the ribs from the packages and set aside. Increase the heat on the grill to medium. Place the ribs directly on the grill, and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes, basting with sauce generously every 2 to 3 minutes, until the meat is evenly browned and caramelized. Serve warm.

POWER FOOD

SNACK ON VITAMIN-C PACKED PINEAPPLE, AND YOU’LL FEEL LIKE YOU’RE ON VACATION— AND REAP HEALTH BENEFITS TOO.

BESIDES COCONUT, PINEAPPLE IS PERHAPS the fruit that most quintessentially represents the taste of the tropics. Featuring a spiny exterior and nectarous, juicy flesh, a pineapple is actually a fusion of multiple berries that grow around the core and combine to form that delicious fruit we love to slice, grill, blend and bake.

POWER UP Like most fruits, pineapples have a knack for satisfying a sweet tooth without packing on the pounds. One cup of diced fruit has only 82 calories, no fat, and a whopping 130 percent of the daily-recommended amount of immune-boosting vitamin C for someone on a 2,000-calorie diet. It’s also high in manganese (76 percent of the daily recommended value), which promotes bone health and helps with metabolism, and contains bromelain, a mixture of enzymes that have been shown to be effective in

reducing inflammation, treating osteoarthritis and aiding in digestion. One caveat: Pineapple is particularly high in sugar, with 16 grams in each cup, so as difficult as it may be, enjoy in moderation.

BUY/STORE/SERVE When selecting a pineapple, look for bright, green leaves and the absence of any bruises or squishy spots. Pineapples are already ripe and ready to eat once they hit supermarkets (they do not ripen further as bananas and avocados do), so don’t be deterred if the fruit appears green on the outside—that’s perfectly normal. Once purchased, it should be eaten within a few days for optimal freshness (or within four days if it’s kept in the refrigerator). You can serve a pineapple plain and raw (a quick Google search will reveal many creative ways to cut and serve the fruit), turn it into a refreshing salsa (mix it with cilantro, red onion, a serrano pepper,

lime juice, and salt*), grill it on kebabs with chicken or shrimp, or try it on a pizza (trust us on this!). Also, the bromelain it contains works as a natural meat tenderizer, making it ideal for a marinade for steak, pork and other meats. Other ways to use the sweet treat? Try pineapple in ice cream, salad dressing, smoothies and even cocktails.

DID YOU KNOW? Christopher Columbus may be best known for his discovery of the New World, but the Italian explorer is also responsible for introducing the pineapple to Europeans, according to the California Rare Fruit Growers organization. Columbus first found the fruit, which was originally domesticated by Indians, in Guadalupe in 1493 and brought it back with him to Spain. From there, it was passed on to the Philippines and other tropical areas.

RESTAURANT REVIEW

BLUFF CITY BBQ

WHEN IN THE MOOD FOR A SUMMERTIME COOKOUT, I TOSS a couple of steaks, burgers and hot dogs on the backyard grill to share with family and friends. But when the taste for barbecue strikes, I leave it to a joint like Bluff City BBQ in Montclair to replicate the Southern comfort flavor that I crave. I visited Bluff City on a recent sultry evening to celebrate the eve of summer. The restaurant is located on a quiet side street off of busy Bloomfield Avenue, giving it a homey, neighborhood-type feeling. Inside Bluff City, which is named after a small Tennessee town, you’re welcomed by rustic decor (many tabletops are repurposed doors) and friendly staff. It was easy to make ourselves at home. For our meal, I started with an order of BBQ Bluff City wings. A small silver tray held about eight pieces, each lightly glazed with a signature sauce. Bluff City BBQ sauce is a mix of tangy vinegar, sweet brown sugar and other secret ingredients. (Good luck getting the whole recipe from owner Scott Hermo, who keeps it well-guarded.) Each table has a bottle of the sauce, along with salt, pepper and hot sauce, but the wings didn’t require an extra drop. My dining companion ordered shrimp and grits, which were served in a sauce with Andouille sausage, tomato, onion and peppers. It was a memorable plate—the grits were piping hot with a crispy outer layer and, unlike many restaurants, Bluff City doesn’t skimp on the shrimp. Another bonus: The tails are removed, making the dish easier to enjoy. With so many meats on the menu, choosing a main course could’ve been difficult. Luckily, the BBQ Sampler gives a great overview of the offerings. Served on another silver tray, it comes with four ribs and heaps of brisket and pulled pork. While many might argue that falloff-the-bone ribs are actually overcooked, the meat of Bluff City’s ribs fell right off and were the most tender I’ve ever tried. Like the wings, the ribs are lightly brushed with sauce (unlike true Memphis-style ribs, which are dry) to give them an extra flavor punch and color. The brisket, however, is seasoned

JUNE/JULY 2017 | MSXHEALTHANDLIFE.COM

RestR.0617.MSX.1.indd 64

with only a trace amount of salt and pepper. Though the meat was tender, I found myself using a lot of extra sauce to get the right taste. My friend was floored by her choice, buttermilk fried chicken. The four large pieces had just enough breading to give each bite a generous crunch, and the garlic honey glaze made her tastebuds dance. Thankfully she gave me a drumstick to sample, and I agreed with her assessment. To accompany our dishes, we ordered two soul-food classics— mac and cheese and collard greens. Neither of the two were knockouts (the former was too soupy and the latter was a tad bitter), which made us second guess our selections. We agreed to order the Brussels sprouts and buttered mushrooms next time. And there will certainly be a next time—the barbecue and service are too good to enjoy just once. Speaking of service, we received two unobtrusive and laughter-filled visits by management. One of the jokes was about our stuffed bellies and whether we left room for dessert. We did, but only for the red velvet cake to share. Like our side dishes, the three-tiered cake likely won’t win any competitions; it’s the sideshow in a place where the barbecue rules. And that’s no bluff. —Darius Amos Bluff City BBQ, 21 Midland Ave., Montclair, 973.744.4657; bluffcitybbqnj. com
