Atlantic General Hospital Offers Lung Cancer Screening

Low dose CT screenings now recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force

Berlin, Md. – Like many other forms of cancer, there is now a screening test for the early detection of lung cancer. If you meet certain criteria, you may be a candidate for this potentially lifesaving test.

Atlantic General Hospital, an ACR Designated Lung Cancer Screening Center, has joined a select group of healthcare providers on the eastern shore who have recently begun to provide special low-dose cat scans for those individuals who are at high risk for developing lung cancer.

While there is a low level of risk associated with exposure to imaging radiation, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has determined that certain individuals can greatly benefit from annual screenings, as recently reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Three out of four people who are diagnosed with lung cancer may already have an incurable form of disease at the time of diagnosis and therefore have a five-year survival rate of less than five percent. The results of a large clinical trial have shown that annual screening with low-dose CT scans is associated with a twenty percent reduction in lung cancer deaths.

Because the recommendation is so recent, most commercial insurance carriers and Medicare do not cover the cost of the CT screening, however, that may change in the near future. Fortunately, AGH has attempted to price the screening at a very reasonable cost to the patient.

To qualify for screening, certain criteria that must be met. Individuals must – be between the ages of 55 and 74, be a current or former smoker who has quit in the last 15 years, have a 30-pack year smoking history (a pack a day for 30 years or two packs a day for 15 years), or a 20-pack year smoking history with certain risk factors such as asbestos exposure or family history of lung cancer.

 

*Additional criteria will be discussed with the patient at the initial appointment.

 For more information about this screening, individuals are encouraged to talk to their primary care physician. To have the test performed you will need a referral from your healthcare provider. Information is also available at www.atlanticgeneral.org/lungcancerscreening.

Memo from the Maryland Chamber of Commerce

Now that the Gubernatorial and Legislative elections are in the rear view mirror, the Maryland Chamber is already at work continuing to advance the business climate issues that are important to our members and figured so prominently in statewide campaigns. While Larry Hogan’s win over Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is considered a surprise by some, the Maryland Chamber has been in touch with the Hogan Transition Team and will be there as Governor-elect Hogan builds his administration and works toward his first legislative session.

The Maryland Chamber has already begun our efforts to work with the Hogan Administration and General Assembly in areas such as innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and education – areas that will help drive Maryland’s economy and develop more and better jobs. Thank you to all our members whose support helped the Chamber ensure these discussions took center stage in this election.

The General Assembly also saw its share of changes:

  • of the 188 members, 66 are new to their legislative seat
  • there are 11 new Senators and 59 new Delegates
  • the partisan make-up of the chambers has changed with 33 Democrats and 14 Republicans in the Senate and 91 Democrats and 50 Republicans in the House.

The Chamber has begun to reach out to new legislators, briefing them on the issues important to the business community and building on the work that has already been done to move Maryland toward a more competitive and employer friendly climate.

Election results also included the passage of ballot measure Question #1. As a driving force in the “Coalition to Protect Maryland’s Transportation Funds”, the Chamber is pleased that Maryland voters passed the constitutional amendment creating a lock box ensuring Maryland’s dedicated transportation funds are used for transportation purposes only.  Many thanks to all of our Coalition partners and sponsors for their support.

The Maryland Chamber of Commerce is Maryland’s statewide business advocacy organization.  Our mission is to support our members and to advance Maryland as a national and global competitive leader.   If you have any questions or we can be of service to you please contact our office 410-269-0642 or 301-261-285.

HAWK TALK: A WEEKLY RECAP OF UMES ATHLETICS (NOVEMBER 3RD – 9TH)
UMES Harry T. Hawk Wins; Athletes of the Week, and more

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – This week’s Hawk Talk edition features news from bowling, cross country, volleyball, and more.

Thanks to everyone for voting for Harry as the best mascot in the nation! Hawk Pride!

BOWLING

Last Tuesday (11/04), University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) junior newcomer Thashaina Seraus (Oranjestad, Aruba) was named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Bowler of the Week for her efforts at the Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) New Jersey Jamboree. She averaged a 210.09 pin fall in her first collegiate competition and finished sixth overall. Searus was also named to the FDU Jersey Jamboree All-Tournament Team.

This past weekend (11/08-09), the Hawks went undefeated in conference play, 10-0, and improved to 17-7 overall on the season. On day one, the team opened MEAC play with a perfect 5-0 record. Senior Tatiana Munoz (Ibague Tolima, Colombia) led the Hawks with a 194 average. The next day, UMES finished in first place with their 5-0 record. Senior Valerie Riggin (Vista, Calif.) filled 94-percent of her 50 frames.

This weekend (11/14-16), Maryland Eastern Shore hosts the Hawk Classic at Millsboro Lanes, in Millsboro, Del.

CROSS COUNTRY

Last Monday (11/03), sophomore cross country runners Khalil Rmidi Kinini (Malaga, Spain) and Barbora Blahutova (Slavkov, Czech Republic) were named UMES Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) Athletes of the Week after their performance at the MEAC Championships. Both Hawks were honored as the conference’s Most Outstanding Performer after winning their respective races.

This Friday (11/14), UMES travels to State College, Pa. to compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships.

VOLLEYBALL

Last month, the volleyball team went out in the community and spent a Saturday helping to clean up Manokin Park and making small renovations to the Oaksville Little League for local area children.

“They came out and happily assisted us in painting the benches.” UMES professor and former athletics director Kirkland Hall said. “What is even more remarkable is that they thanked us for letting them come out!”

On Nov. 7, the squad picked up a four-set win over Norfolk State, 3-1. Junior Ashley Smith (Huntley, Ill.) and freshman Kirstin Fink (Tucson, Ariz.) each registered a double-double in the victory. Yesterday (11/09), the Hawks fell to Hampton in four sets, 3-1. Senior Ksenia Sukhareva (Moscow, Russia) tallied her sixth double-double on the season, 11 kills and 13 digs.

Tomorrow (11/11), UMES host East Carolina to wrap up the season. First serve is set for 5:30 p.m.

GENERAL

BLACK COLLEGE FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME

UMES Hall of Famer Roger Brown will be induction into the Black College Football Hall of Fame, one of six players and a coach to be enshrined at the ceremony in Atlanta this coming February.

Brown started off with a spectacular four-year collegiate career at Maryland State under the tutelage of legendary coach Vernon “Skip” McCain. After graduating from the school, he was drafted by the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL) and play nine seasons (1960-1969). Along the way, Brown would play in six straight Pro Bowls (1962-67).

COLLEGE COURT REPORT

Harry The Hawk, the 9-foot tall air-filled mascot of the UMES, won the inaugural College Court Report Mascot Mayhem contest!

Earlier this fall, College Court Report, a website that follows college basketball, named Harry one of the top 64 mascots in college basketball. Those 64 mascots were placed into a tournament-style bracket where fans voted in each round, advancing one school’s mascot over another.

Behind a record 827 votes in the championship matchup, Harry T. Hawk took it to Kaboom!, Bradley University’s mascot, and never let up. Behind an increased presence on social media by the UMES Athletics department and various sport teams at UMES, Harry was able to score a ton of votes to lead him to victory.
