SCVTS Vogue Techniques Salon Open to the Public

Attached please find the flier for our student salon (Vogue Techniques) where the community can come in (by appointment) and receive the benefits of our aspiring cosmetology students to perform various services listed on the menu. Mrs. DiPietro does an outstanding job preparing these students for beyond her years with them as they navigate their lives and vocation moving forward. The experience these young people gain through experience is invaluable and any help you can give in spreading the word to people to get them to come in would be greatly appreciated. Please share with anyone you think may be interested as our students (who come from the many great schools across the county) gain valuable experience and the customer enjoys processes at a greatly reduced cost.

Community Health Needs Survey

My name is Joe Johnson and I work as a project assistant for the Walter Rand Institute (WRI) at Rutgers-Camden. We at WRI are currently conducting a community health needs assessment for three counties in southern NJ; Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem Counties. What this means is that we are distributing a survey on health needs (digitally) with the goal of getting responses from the citizens of these counties. The Inspira Health Network is interested in taking an in-depth look at the communities within their service area. To that end, hearing from the community and residents in these areas is critical as the findings from this community health needs assessment will be utilized by Inspira Health Network to prioritize public health issues and develop a community health implementation plan focused on meeting the identified community needs.
This survey should only take about 15 minutes if you could fill it out during a break or at home your input would be greatly appreciated. We are also looking for the input from residents in Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem Counties. Please share with your family, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors, community members you interact with, and anyone you know that lives in these counties. Please feel free to share this link to the Inspira Health Network CHNA 
That said, I was hoping you might be able to help us get the survey in front of more people by forwarding the message below to any listservs or email newsletters you run. The more responses we get to the survey the better understanding we have of the health needs of Salem County.
If you have any questions about the project please feel free to email them to myself or my supervisor Kristin Curtis ([email protected]). Thank you so much for your help.

Safely Flush Away Allergens and Bacteria

Safely Flush Away Allergens, Bacteria

This time of year, there are many elements that irritate the nasal passages — allergens, bacteria, and dry air from heaters are just a few.

According to the FDA, nasal irrigation devices such as Neti pots, bulb syringes, squeeze bottles and battery-operated pulsed water devices are safe and effective if used properly.

In addition, preliminary reports from MedRxiv — an online archive for complete but unpublished manuscripts (preprints) in medical sciences — revealed that patients who received a nasal flush after a positive COVID-19 PCR test were 19 times less likely to be hospitalized than the national rate.

“It’s very important to only flush the nasal cavity with a saline or saltwater solution using distilled or sterile water,” said ENT Jessie Clairvil, DO. “Tap water can contain low levels of organisms which are killed by stomach acid when swallowed but can hide out in your nose and cause severe infections.”

Tap water boiled for 3 to 5 minutes then cooled is safe to use, she said.
When using the irrigation device, directions should be followed exactly.
“Lean over a sink and tilt your head to one side,” Dr. Clairvil said. “Be sure your chin and forehead are level to avoid water flowing into your mouth.”

Insert the spout into the upper nostril so the liquid can drain down to the lower nostril.
“After the first flush, clear the nostrils of anything left behind, then prepare for a second flush,” she said.
Lean over the sink and tilt to the opposite side. Repeat the flushing process.
“Flushing like this can help relieve nasal symptoms of sinus infections, allergies, colds, and flu,” Dr. Clairvil said. “Just be sure to follow all instructions and contact your doctor or pharmacist with any questions.”

To make an appointment with Dr. Clairvil, call 856-339-0800.
