Thursday, April 27, 2017 Living Well for Better Health program 04:00pm TAMC to hold information session on April 20 for upcoming Living Well for Better Health program
Aroostook County - Adults in the community who have any kind of ongoing health condition are invited to an informational session at The Aroostook Medical Center on Thursday, April 20, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. to learn more about an upcoming free six-session series, Living Well for Better Health.
“We are excited to be able to offer the Living Well for Better Health program locally,” said Karen Enman, BSN, MSN, the lead for inpatient care coordination at TAMC and one of the instructors for the course. “We think this will provide invaluable support for the many people in our community who are dealing with at least one ongoing health condition.” Enman and co-instructor Ruth Hanson, RN, the preventative care coordinator at TAMC, have both been certified by Spectrum Generations to teach this Stanford University Chronic Disease Self-Management Program.
Living Well for Better Health is an interactive workshop series held for 2 ½ hours, once a week, for six weeks. Adults with any kind of health condition such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, depression, weight concerns, or any other ongoing health problem attend together. Family members or friends are encouraged to attend as well.
The informational session which TAMC is offering on April 20 will serve as a “Class Zero” for the program. Those who come to the session are not committing to attend the full six-week course. Rather it is an opportunity for them to learn more about the program and how it can help them find new ways to handle a number of issues that may be a problem for them due to their health, from how they feel and managing stress to setting goals and talking to their doctor.
“In addition to learning more about how this program can help them, those who come to Class Zero will learn more about the specific details of the Living Well for Better Health program which begins in May at TAMC. We can also help them fill out the application for the series and answer questions,” explained Enman.
The Class Zero informational session will be held in the McCain Conference Room on the second floor of the East Annex at TAMC’s A.R. Gould Memorial Hospital. Anyone who is not able to attend this session but wants to learn more about the free six-session Living Well for Better Health workshop can contact Karen Enman at 768-4096.

Saturday, April 29, 2017 Autism Challenge Community Event 09:00am Autism Challenge community event planned for April 29

Aroostook County – April is Autism Awareness Month and the Aroostook Autism Support Group is wrapping up the month with a large community event on Saturday, April 29, at Presque Isle Middle School.

“This community event will include our 4th annual Autism Challenge 5K and Kids Fun Run, but it has been expanded to offer more for the whole family,” says Lisa Brewer, co-founder of AASG. "We really wanted to create a festive atmosphere with lots of things happening as we celebrate and raise awareness for autism, which impacts many families in Aroostook County.”

The 1 Mile Kids Fun Run gets underway at 9:30 a.m.; children will run four laps around the track at PIMS. The cost to take part is $10, with all kids who compete earning a medal and Autism Challenge t-shirts for the first 25 to register. Runners and walkers will start at 10:00 a.m. from PIMS for a 5K course around the Presque Isle Industrial Park and ending back at the school. This is a non-timed event with a medal for all who compete. Awards will also be presented to the first male and female finishers, the oldest and youngest finishers, the best photo finish and the best dressed. T-shirts will be given to the first 50 to register; the cost of registration is $20.

Online preregistration for Autism Challenge 5K and the Kids Fun Run is encouraged at runsignup.com. Event day registrations are also welcome. Registration for both activities starts at 8:15 a.m. in the school gym. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Aroostook Autism Support Group.

Added to this year’s event is the Kids Safety Fair which AASG has held in the fall in years past. First responders from several organizations, including Border Patrol, Crown Ambulance, the Aroostook County Sherriff’s Office, Maine State Police, Presque Isle Police Department, the Presque Isle Fire Department, and the Maine Warden Service will be on hand and in uniform, along with their vehicles. Not only do children have a chance to meet the first responders, but they can climb into vehicles, explore equipment and learn more about the tools of the trade.

“We began offering this safety fair in a few years ago because we felt any child, when faced with an emergency, can experience a level of fear and anxiety brought on by strange lights, sounds, and the uniformed men and women that will surround them. Often the fear can possibly hinder the help that is trying to be given by the first responders. Recognizing this, we wanted to create an opportunity to allow children to meet first responders in a non-threatening environment to help familiarize them with not only the responders, but the gear, and vehicles as well, in hopes to alleviate some of the fears associated with them,” explains Maeghan Swanson, co-founder of AASG.

The Kids Safety Fair takes place from 9:30 a.m. until 12:00 noon. This event is free and open to the public. In addition to the emergency responders, various agencies will also be on hand with displays and information about programming and services offered.

Also added this year to the Autism Challenge will be a number of children’s carnival-type games from The United Way, as well as the always popular TAMC obstacle course. As in previous years, there will also be face painting by Wintergreen Arts, cotton candy, popcorn and more. These games and activities will all be free for participants. Donations will be accepted.

“The idea is to truly make this a community celebration,” says Swanson. “The community has been so supportive of our efforts, and this is a way that we can give back.”

Sponsors for the Autism Challenge Community Event include: TAMC, Graves Shop 'n Save, County Super Spuds, MMG Insurance, State Farm – John Harvell, Emera Maine, Norstate Federal Credit Union and Townsquare Media.

Founded in 2013, the purpose of Aroostook Autism Support Group is to provide support to individuals and their families affected by autism. AASG aims to promote education and awareness to build a community that offers both hope and acceptance to all in need. The Autism Challenge is one way that the group raises money to help support their efforts throughout the year.
