TODAY'S FOCUS
Nonprofit Breast Center focuses on personalizing care
By DR. LISA BARON
Medical director and co-founder, Charleston Breast Center
Special to CharlestonCurrents.com

OCT. 12, 2009 -- When a doctor expresses concern about your mammogram, it's scary. That's why the staff and physicians at the Charleston Breast Center, a nonprofit, community-based medical facility, are quick to explain what will happen next in a way that is empathic to the fact that the patient is worried and overwhelmed.


Baron

While most patients have normal exams and screenings, some come in with symptoms or problems. We carefully walk patients through the process, discussing in real time what to expect and helping them navigate the process. We understand this is stressful, so we try to minimize the amount of time patients have to wait and wonder.

This focus on patient care is why we created the Charleston Breast Center three years ago. It's a facility where women receive state-of-the-art breast cancer screening and detection in a compassionate environment.

Your chance to help

A number of local businesses are hosting events or offering special promotions this month - Breast Cancer Awareness Month - to benefit the Charleston Breast Center.

Throughout October: Castle Keepers of Charleston will donate 10 percent of the cost of any chemical-free cleaning booked during the month of October when the customer mentions Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Oct. 15, 22, 29: Circa 1886 restaurant will offer a $75 tasting menu every Thursday night in October, 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., with 10 percent of the price donated to CBC.

Oct. 15: From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Mad River Bar & Grill will donate 10 percent of its proceeds to CBC.

Oct. 18: Gold's Gym will accept $15 donations to the CBC to take a Spinning class from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The gym will also be selling raffle tickets to benefit the CBC for a chance to win prizes.

Oct. 21: Local T-Bonz, Liberty Tap Room & Grill and Pearlz restaurants to donate 10 percent of proceeds to CBC.

Oct. 22: Chicks with Checks event at Facelogic in Mount Pleasant. Get a facial screening/analysis for $35 and $25 will go to support CBC.

Oct. 24: Bond Street Imports and Tristan Restaurant will host a 5:30 p.m. wine tasting with all proceeds to benefit CBC. Cost is $35 per person.

The Charleston Breast Center hosts a weekly breast tumor board where the staff discusses newly diagnosed patients with the team, including surgeons, pathologists, oncologists, radiation therapists and others. At this team meeting, a care plan is initiated and then shared with the patient. It's all part of providing patients with excellent care and trying to give them as many resources as possible - all under one roof.

Even though we "think pink" every single day, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a time for us to remind women to be proactive. As women, we tend to put ourselves last, focusing on everyone else first. But women need to pause and remember how important it is to take care of themselves. Don't put aside preventive care like a mammogram. Focus on health and then become an advocate and a role model for the other women in your life.

That message of personal care and education is so important and is such a part of what we do at the Charleston Breast Center. The center relies on the generosity of donors to support its mission and reach as many women as possible. A donation to the Charleston Breast Center is an investment in the community, and 100 percent of the money is used for services in the Lowcountry. We truly appreciate the many businesses and individuals who support our efforts and provide donations.

Dr. Lisa Baron is the medical director and co-founder of the nonprofit Charleston Breast Center. Its mission is to bridge state-of-the art breast cancer detection and treatment with education and compassionate comprehensive care.

Renovated Gaillard might be around the corner
By ANDY BRACK, publisher
CharlestonCurrents.com

OCT. 12, 2009 - Spoleto Festival USA Chairwoman Martha Rivers Ingram says Charleston needs a world-class performance hall. Otherwise, the community might miss out on some of the arts it deserves.


Brack

"There are people who will not buy tickets for the Spoleto Festival events of the future … because of the Gaillard Auditorium," the Nashville billionaire told members of the Rotary Club of Charleston last week. "It's fixable. It's only a matter of determination and money - and we intend to find the money to go with the determination."

Ingram, who grew up in Charleston and is sister to local businessman John Rivers Jr., hired a New York design firm to develop a transformational idea of what the Gaillard could become if it were renovated. The cost? About $80 million, less than half of what it would cost to tear down the 1960s auditorium and start from scratch. Other estimates are up to $105 for the change.

It'll be worth it because the Gaillard isn't optimally configured now and also isn't that attractive, although Ingram said it in much nicer terms: "The sixties - it was a very challenging time in architecture."

The plan at present, which still has to get approved by the city and pass muster of a public-private partnership to make it work, is for the exterior of the building to be recast as something that would fit in at the College of Charleston, just blocks away. (See inset drawing).

But the interior is where big changes would come. A cozier concert hall would be reconfigured with two center aisles, smaller balcony overhangs and a slightly smaller stage. A second floor would be added to the Exhibition Hall, which would double its floor space.

Ingram said Charleston Mayor Joe Riley is gangbusters about the project, which we're told he sees as a signature for the twilight of his long career, particularly because of the associated economic impact a revitalized auditorium would bring to the downtown area. It doesn't hurt that there's already an anonymous gift of $20 million for the renovation.

Charleston Symphony Orchestra Music Director David Stahl says' he's excited about the possibilities for the auditorium, which could begin as early as 2011 depending on approvals and money.

"Are you kidding? Wow. It's been a dream for 25 years," Stahl said.

Let's hope this dream becomes a reality so that the gem of Charleston is able to shine in new ways for the arts.

GOOD NEWS
Summit to focus on school-business partnerships

Where will Lowcountry businesses get future employees? What are the schools doing to prepare future members of the workforce? How can local business get involved? Those are the kinds of questions that the Education Foundation plans to address at its 14th annual Business Education Summit on Oct. 28.

The summit, with the theme "Building the Pipeline," will be held from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the College Center at Trident Technical College. The focus will be on how schools and businesses can work together to ensure that all students graduate equipped with the knowledge and skills they'll need to further their education or move directly into the workforce.

The Education Foundation, an initiative of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce that helps build partnerships between the business community and the schools, has been working with the region's businesses, school districts and the Ford Motor Co.'s Next Generation Learning Community national network. The Ford program's co-developer, Rick Delano, will be the keynote speaker at the summit and will outline how the nine communities in the Ford network have transformed their schools, what this has meant to students and employers, and why Charleston has been invited into the network.

"The Ford Next Generation Learning Communities program is not just about greater student achievement," Delano says. "Motivating ninth- and 10th-graders to learn by allowing them to choose a career field in which to study is a very powerful 'on' button that the community can push. Creating this type of opportunity for students is a net positive, but there is also value to the community in workforce development."

The cost of the summit is $50 for educators, $85 for others, and includes a full breakfast. For more information or to register, visit online.

'Tosca,' other operas from the Met come to Main Library

The Charleston County Public Library will launch its 2009-10 season of operas from the famed Metropolitan Opera House in New York City with an Oct. 31 showing of "Tosca." The Puccini opera will be shown at 1:30 p.m. in the Charleston County Main Library Auditorium, 68 Calhoun St., in high-definition video and 7.1 surround sound.

"Tosca" is the story of a famous opera singer, a free-thinking painter and a sadistic chief of police who are caught in a net of love and politics. Upcoming operas in the Met series include Verdi's "Aida," Puccini's "Turandot," Bizet's "Carmen," Thomas' "Hamlet," and Offenbach's "Les Contes d'Hoffman."

For more information about this series, call 805-6930 or visit online.

Dinner will focus on sustainable seafood classics

The South Carolina Aquarium and the restaurant Wild Olive will salute National Seafood Month with an Oct. 19 dinner featuring sustainable seafood classics and seafood education. The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Wild Olive, 2867 Maybank Highway, Johns Island.

Wild Olive Chef Fred Neuville will give local seafood a traditional Italian touch in a menu that includes mussels with white wine, fennel, sundried tomatoes and garlic butter'; grilled mahi mahi served over sweet potato, ricotta gnocchi and finished with a tomato, spinach ragu; and tiramisu for dessert. Each course will be paired with wine. During dinner, Megan Westmeyer, the aquarium's sustainable-seafood coordinator, will offer information on what "sustainable seafood" means, as well as tips on buying and serving fresh fish.

The dinner is $44 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are required and must be made by Oct. 16; call Wild Olive at 737-4177 to reserve a space.

HISTORY SPOTLIGHT
Greens

Perhaps nowhere in the United States have greens been so beloved as in the South. South Carolina has a long history of cooking greens-typically collards, turnip greens, and some wild leaf greens. Greens came to South Carolina from around the world. Collards are widely believed to have arrived here from Africa via the slave route, and turnips, originally eaten more than thirteen hundred years ago, made their way from Asia. England's love of greens is also reflected in our cuisine. Some greens, such as poke salat and dandelion greens grow wild. Others are the tops of a vegetable (beet tops and turnip tops) while others are loose greens (some varieties of turnips that have no root vegetable) or headed greens (cabbage).

A complete list of other greens might include collards' cousin kale (also known as cole, colewort, Dutch kool, German kohl and English cole, collarats, and collard-leaves), cabbage sprouts, beet tops, mustard greens, broccoli raab (also called rape and turnip broccoli), and spinach. Cabbage is not commonly included among "greens." Any and all of the above can and are used separately or in conjunction with the traditional collards and turnip greens. Turnip and collard greens are considered better after a frost.

All greens must be washed thoroughly to avoid grittiness. The traditional southern method of cooking collards and turnips is to make a broth with fatback, streak o'lean, ham hocks, or other salted pork or bacon and water (sometimes hot peppers are included). The greens are stripped of tough or yellowed stems and leaves and added to the boiling water. The heat is reduced and the greens left to simmer for up to two hours. They are then cut into smaller pieces and served hot, sometimes with the pork fried and served as well. Modern cooks frequently substitute chicken broth for the pork. Vinegar with chipped onions, tomato preserves or hot pepper sauce is frequently kept on the table for seasoning the greens. The pot liquor may be used as a broth or served with the greens in a side dish or bowl.

Greens are highly nutritious; a source of riboflavin, calcium, and iron as well as vitamins A and C. It is thought that the use of salt pork was also important to the diet of southerners in the early days of settlement and following the Civil War, when meat was scarce. When served on New Year's Day, greens are considered a promise of "greenbacks" in the coming year.
