October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Nashville, TN – Clinical breast exams and mammograms are powerful weapons in the fight against breast cancer. But many women go without these recommended screening tests for a variety of reasons: they don’t think they’re at risk for breast cancer, lack insurance coverage for the screenings, don’t have time for an exam or the means to travel to a health provider, or simply fear the results and what may come next. During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, the Department of Health is urging all women over age 40 to get these important annual screening tests and reminding them resources are available to assist them.
“All women are at risk for breast cancer, especially as they age, and there are resources available for those who don’t have insurance coverage for screening and help with treatment if that becomes necessary,” said Health Commissioner Susan R. Cooper, MSN, RN. “We urge Tennessee women to get screened for breast cancer and talk to their health providers about ways to reduce their risk for this disease.” «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University will celebrate Homecoming 2010 with the theme, “Peay Paradise,” from October 4th-9th. Homecoming 2010 includes events for all ages, and most of the events are open to the public.
The Gateway Chamber Ensemble has been making waves in the tight knit classical music community since they first formed in the fall of 2008. The group kicked off their 2010-2011 concert series with what they describe as a new beginning. “The recurring thread this season will be composers we’ve heard of but approached in ways they aren’t usually done,” Dr. Gregory Wolynec, APSU associate professor of music and director of the ensemble, said. “It included works that we might not have heard of before, that don’t have a natural home. They are too small to be done by a full symphony or orchestra, and yet they are too large to be done by a typical chamber group. All our works will be done with 10 to 25 players. For most of these pieces, these are the only performances in these conditions they’ll get all year.”
The evening’s performance featured the ensembles interpretation of masterworks such as Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 6 “Let Matin,” Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” and Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring.”
