Holiday Event to Benefit AIDS Community Services

Ebenezer: Do You Believe A Man Can Change?, a unique one-man show by Lee John to benefit AIDS Community Services, will be held at 7:30 p.m. December 15 and 16 at the Evergreen Conference Center/BUA, 119 W. Chippewa St., Buffalo. Tickets are just $10 and can be purchased at the door or by calling 499-1755.

Lee John explores Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in a unique, fun and intensely emotional way. It is a “behind the scenes” look at Ebenezer’s fateful night. In Lee’s version, Jacob Marley is not repentant, yet has one word that can save us all. The three ghosts are “off-duty union workers” that spout wisecracks and wisdom to the audience.  They discuss silk sheets, TJ Maxx, movies, obesity, husky jeans, union rules and yes, Ebenezer.

March of Dimes Partners with Statewide Health Agencies to Address Late Preterm Birth

In an effort to reduce the number of late preterm births, the March of Dimes New York Chapter announced today it will partner with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the New York State Chapter of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG District II) to help educate health care providers and the public on the importance of the last weeks of pregnancy and the risk of early deliveries.  A healthy, full term-pregnancy lasts 39-40 weeks, yet there has been a rise in births scheduled prior to that time through inductions and C-sections that are not medically necessary - a practice once thought to be safe.  Research shows that scheduling births, even a few weeks too early, may result in babies having feeding, breathing and learning problems.  They are also more likely to die of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
