FM #182 - FHS PCC - "Everything You Need to Know"

FM #182

This internet radio show or podcast is number 182 in the series for Franklin Matters.

This recording shares the Franklin High School PCC meeting on Monday, November 18, 2019. A panel discussion on vaping was on the agenda and recorded for sharing with the community who could not participate in person. 

Franklin TV did record the session as well and it will be shared on the local cable channels. When the schedule is confirmed for those re-broadcasts, we’ll share that.

The panel members were
  • Jennifer Knight-Levine, President of the SAFE Coalition
  • Lieutenant Mark Manocchio, Franklin Police Dept
  • James J. Ledwith Jr., MD, FAAFP

The recording of the discussion itself runs approx xx minutes. The PCC meeting portion was edited out of this broadcast.

Without further ado, here is the vaping panel discussion

Resources mentioned by Jennifer:

Resources that Dr Ledwith mentioned:
  • MCPAP” is the Massachusetts Child Psychiatry Access Project. It provides consultation between the PCP and an expert in pediatric and adolescent psychiatry within 30 minutes of a phone call, Monday through Friday. In 2003 a pilot program was developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester. Enthusiastically received, in 2004 the Department of Mental Health and Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership adapted the model to be implemented statewide. Over 30 states have since developed similar programs based on the MCPAP model.
  • MCSTAP” is the Massachusetts Consultation Service on Treatment of Addiction and Pain, set in action in January 2019. It provides similar consultations for physicians on the management of addictions and complex pain conditions based on the MCPAP model. Consultants are on call to advise treating physicians on effective treatment approaches and to provide resources for ongoing care of their patients.
  • The newest service is “ASAP-MCPAP” is the Adolescent Substance Abuse Program within MCPAP. The program will specifically provide guidance on the management of substance use concerns in teenagers. The program will be formally announced in the next few weeks but the MCPAP office is already gearing up to assist health care providers.
  • MBHP” is the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership, an organization funded by contracts and grants from the state and insurance plans to develop and manage these programs.

Remington Middle School PCC kicks off the "Rally for Remington"

Dear Franklin Residents:

The Remington Middle School PCC is kicking off our annual Direct Donation program for Remington, Rally For Remington. The funds raised through this program help to pay for programs for the students, including cultural enrichment, field trips, and much much more!

We want to be able to help mold and shape the minds of our young students. If you are unfamiliar with us, we are a parent volunteer organization whose mission is to positively impact the lives of the Remington Students.

We are looking to the community for help this year as we have not met our goal in recent years due to many factors, most prevalent is the increase in the cost to provide quality programs. While our Remington family has contributed, we are asking for your help to keep our quality programs continuing for the benefit of the students. All of the monies raised, 100%, stays in Remington and is not used for anything other than programs to benefit the students.

We hope that you will consider making a onetime donation to Remington Middle School so that we can continue to provide these important programs for the students. You can make your donation by PayPal, or sending check or cash to Remington School PCC, 628 Washington Street, Franklin, MA 02038. Thru PayPal, a receipt will be generated and sent to you or we can send you one at your request for check and cash donations.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
