WHAT'S HAPPENING

  • Video brings Sprain Brook Academy students' story to Albany

    Our students are our best advocates when we seek to share the SWBOCES story with our state representatives, as we did on Advocacy Day in Albany on Feb. 27.
     
    The impact of the Sprain Brook Academy, in partnership with the Westchester County Department of Correction, is not an easy story to tell, though. With the use of video, however, we were able to "bring" two young men from the program to the state capitol to share the impact SWBOCES has made in helping put their lives on a better path. Meet Messiah and James.

  • All About Ovarian Cancer: What Nurses Need To Know

    On Tuesday, Dec. 11, Southern Westchester BOCES Practical Nursing Program will host a presentation by Yorktown-based Support Connection, "All About Ovarian Cancer: What Nurses Need to Know."

    Students currently enrolled in the program will hear directly from a survivor, who will share her powerful personal story, including how her cancer was found and successfully treated and critical information such as symptoms to look for and questions to ask patients,.

    Ovarian cancer is often called “the disease that whispers.” The symptoms are subtle and hard to recognize, and there is no routine screening test.  If ovarian cancer is found and treated before the cancer has spread outside the ovary, the 5-year survival rate is about 90%. However, only 20% of all ovarian cancers are found at this early stage.

    Nurses and other medical professionals who interact closely with patients and listen for symptoms can be the key to early detection and survival.

    Support Connection is a not-for-profit organization that provides free support services to women and families dealing with breast and ovarian cancer. Learn more at www.supportconnection.org.
