FREE HEALTHY SUMMER EATING SEMINAR – 7/22/2015

LIVINGSTON MANOR, N.Y. (July 22, 2015) — Catskill Regional Medical Group (CRMG) will present a free Healthy Summer Eating seminar with guest Speaker Shelly DeHaan, Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, on Thursday, July 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Catskill Regional Medical Group Office located on 36 Pearl Street, in Livingston Manor, next to the community garden.

Get light and healthy meal ideas and tour the edible and educational garden. There will be refreshments and Raffle prizes. RSVP to Molly Marquand, garden volunteer, at mollymarquand@gmail.com or 845-439-5507.

CRMG and committee partners Sullivan Renaissance and Morgan Outdoors have made a commitment to restore Livingston Manor’s Community Garden at Pearl Street and kicked off the summer season with Community Cleanup Days in May and June. The initiative, backed by a $500 grant from Sullivan Renaissance, is being carried out by the wives of two CRMG Physicians. Together, they are leading the charge with a host of volunteers to turn the abandoned garden into a food producing and educational vehicle for the community.

Volunteers are still needed to help with weeding, repairing garden beds, fencing and entryways and more. The committee’s goal is to restore the landmark as an edible and educational garden that will benefit the community at large. If you would like to volunteer your time and assist with the community garden, please contact Karen Ellsweig atkrebae@exede.net or Elizabeth Malacoff at elizabethmalacoff@gmail.com.

CRMG continues to grow and remains committed to the community. This summer, the Livingston Manor office has been updated with a new sign and façade and will welcome back Nurse Practitioner, Sam Berger, who recently returned from serving in  Afghanistan as a part of Operation Enduring Freedom – where he used his emergency medical skills to help others. Additionally, the Livingston Manor office welcomes Dr. Lauren Roman, who specializes in Family Medicine.
