Community Health Center, Inc. Working Towards Better Health for All


The Community Health Center, Inc.'s dedication building a world class primary health care system, that is committed to caring for special populations, and that is focused on improving health outcomes for our patients as well as building healthy communities grew from the experience of CHC’s founder Mark Masselli in his work with a 24-hour crisis center learning first hand “...whatever problems brought people to the crisis center, the lack of access to good, affordable health care was at the top of the list. So we decided to do something about it.”

Thus, in 1972 a free clinic offering dental services to people who were in need, yet could not afford such benefit, was started by Masselli, joined by some dedicated people in the community led by Reba Moses and Jerry Weitzman, as well as a group of Wesleyan students. This center was, as it still is today, dedicated to the ideal that Health Care is a Right, Not a Privilege.”

Today, CHC has expanded its operations from downtown Middletown, Connecticut to 13 primary care hub/cities and 201 service locations across the state of Connecticut, delivering care to more than 130,000 patients. CHC has also expanded its primary health care services not only in dentistry, but also in medicine and behavioral health.

While the Center's quality healthcare programs are for all, CHC is specially committed to help the uninsured, underinsured, and special populations such as patients with HIV/AIDS.

Helping the Community Health Center provide quality healthcare service is its team of highly motivated and talented healthcare professionals who care about making a difference in the lives of others. They work in a a fast packed, energizing place to work where professional camaraderie and a deep sense of accomplishment pervade.

CHC's healthcare professionals are compensated with competitive pay, provided with incentive opportunities, great benefits that include medical, dental and health insurance among others. They are also given opportunities for professional development. Hence, CHC is able to attract the best and the brightest to its team.

Today, November 16 is International Day for Tolerance 2015


November 16 is International Day for Tolerance, an annual observance declared by UNESCO in 1995 to generate public awareness of the dangers of intolerance. See more here:

On its official website, it is stated that on the day of its fiftieth anniversary, 16 November 1995, UNESCO's Member States adopted a Declaration of Principles on Tolerance. Among other things, the Declaration affirms that tolerance is neither indulgence nor indifference. It is respect and appreciation of the rich variety of our world's cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human. Tolerance recognizes the universal human rights and fundamental freedoms of others. People are naturally diverse; only tolerance can ensure the survival of mixed communities in every region of the globe.
The Declaration qualifies tolerance not only as a moral duty, but also as a political and legal requirement for individuals, groups and States.

U.N. Secretatry General Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's said in a message:

"On the International Day of Tolerance, let us recognize the mounting threat posed by those who strive to divide, and let us pledge to forge a path defined by dialogue, social cohesion and mutual understanding."

In light of the very recent tragic attacks in Paris, the ongoing conflicts, violence, discrimination happening here in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world, this year's observance of the International Day for Tolerance becomes more significant.

Promoting tolerance leads to deeper cultural understanding among the peoples of the world, forging closer ties and the celebration of diversity.

Overcoming racial and religious intolerance, and other forms of discrimination, is still as daunting as ever, yet there should be relentless efforts to do so.

Last week, it was reported that a segment on Fox News Monday about alleged racism at the University of Missouri turned into two panelists shouting at each other and drowning out host Megyn Kelly. - Read more at:

Another report said controversy marred the celebration of Veterans Day in Tulsa over the inclusion of a Muslim float in the parade. - Read more at

What do you think of the 2 above-mentioned stories, is this diversity working?
What can people do when they are in disagreement with one another? 

A candle in the dark. In the midst of the terror attacks in Paris on Friday night, one famous Paris bookstore, Shakespeare and Co., acted as safe refuge for 20 of its customers. A sign on its walls reads: "Be not inhospitable to strangers lest they be angels in disguise." - Read more at:

Why Philadelphia's Veterans' Day Parade 2015 a Significant Event


Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of American freedom and the US Constitution; it played an instrumental role in the American Revolution as a meeting place for the Founding Fathers of the United States, who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the Constitution in 1787.

Thus, the city's Veterans Day Parade this year, held on Sunday November 8 is significant, but not for the above stated historical facts. It was its 1st ever annual Veteran Day Parade, a historic first for the city.

The first annual Philadelphia Veterans Day Parade aired live Sunday afternoon on 6abc. [...] Participants said it was about time. "This should have been done years ago," said Robert Dager of Sellersville, Pa. "They have parades for everything else. This is more important than anything else: the veterans." - Read more at:

The news report above also quoted Media, Pa. Mayor Bob McMahon: "Philadelphia has not had a Veterans Day parade, really, ever," said Media, Pa. Mayor Bob McMahon. "So this is really exciting for us."
One opinion article published last year echoed the sentiments of many who believed that Philadelphia should have a parade to honor veterans, yet we have no city parade for Veterans Day, Memorial Day and for over a century we have not had a city parade to welcome the Philadelphia area troops home from war. We have parades and celebrations to honor a Little League team, the city’s unions, foul-mouthed rappers and pop stars.[...] All of these events that close streets, tax city resources and demand government attention, and nothing for the men and women who help make it all possible by standing in defense of America. - Read more at:

Some citizens said that while it was okay to hold such other events, it would not be asking too much to see that same effort to secure resources, sponsorship, and the like expended to properly honor those Philadelphians who went in harms way. It's a matter of priorities.

So how did Philadelphia get its first Veterans' Parade?
SHORTLY AFTER his appointment last year as director of the Veterans Advisory Commission, Scott C. Brown noticed something that was missing. Philadelphia had no veterans parade.[...]In his bones and in his job, Brown knew that was just wrong and nominated himself to raise the flag. First to salute was U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, the political heavyweight with the magic touch when it comes to All Things Philadelphia. - Read more at:

Thus, the Philadelphia Veterans Day parade took place during the day, (Sunday) long overdue and very welcome.

See here too for the Veterans Day events lined up for Wednesday, November 11, in Philadelphia.

Green Lights On for Veterans Day 2015 and Other Stories


November 11, 2015 is Veterans Day in the United States of America, as President Obama officially declared in a signed proclamation:
I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim November 11, 2015, as Veterans Day. I encourage all Americans to recognize the valor and sacrifice of our veterans through appropriate public ceremonies and private prayers. I call upon Federal, State, and local officials to display the flag of the United States and to participate in patriotic activities in their communities. I call on all Americans, including civic and fraternal organizations, places of worship, schools, and communities to support this day with commemorative expressions and programs.

Thus around the country are the different events honoring and celebrating military veterans: brave men and women of our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard (who) demonstrate a resolute spirit and unmatched selflessness, and whose service reminds us there are few things more American than giving of ourselves to make a difference in the lives of others.

This year, a special way of honoring veterans is to turn on “Green Lights” for them, a project spearheaded by Walmart.
As a show of major support, Walmart is pushing for everyone to recognize prior and active military personnel in a simple way. It’s called “Greenlight A Vet” and is an initiative which could grow to be one of the company’s most memorable projects. Military Times reports that the veteran-friendly company has advertised the project via national television, specifically during prime-time hours. On November 11, Walmart is asking each of the nation’s residences to replace one light within the household with a green light. - Read more at

The color is seen as a symbol of hope, renewal and well-being. It is also a familiar signal to move forward, one article says. Recognizing the contribution of those who served and those who are serving is done in a wide range of ways: From restaurant deals to parades and solemn ceremonies. Installing a light bulb has the potential to be a visible reminder in our neighborhoods about the service of men and women who dedicate and risk their lives to make a difference. - Read more at:

One controversy though marks this year's observance of Veterans Day., according to a report by the Tulsa World.
The Wednesday Tulsa Veterans Day Parade will have a new element this year: controversy.
The controversy erupted when it became public that the Oklahoma branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations will have a float in the parade. “It’s been unbelievable,” said Patsy Varnell, vice president of the Tulsa Veterans Day Parade Association.“Lots of phone calls, predominantly protesting (the inclusion of CAIR),” she said. - Read more at:  

Elsewhere, special events and activities to observe Veterans Day have been lined up or have started. There was one such event which can be considered historic, too. 
 
People lined up early in Center City on Sunday to pay tribute to Philadelphia-area veterans. The first annual Philadelphia Veterans Day Parade aired live Sunday afternoon on 6abc. […] "This should have been done years ago," said Robert Dager of Sellersville, Pa. "They have parades for everything else. This is more important than anything else: the veterans." - Read more at

Diversity Issue Drove Twitter's Black Engineering Manager to Quit


Twitter's Engineering Manager Leslie Miley has left Twitter, all because of the way Twitter is dealing with diversity and inclusion, and wrote about this in a post, “Thought on Diversity Part 2: Why Diversity is Difficult,” TechCrunch reports.

A particular low moment for Miley, he wrote, happened when he asked a question at Twitter’s engineering leadership meeting about what specific steps Twitter engineering was taking to increase diversity. Twitter’s senior VP of Engineering responded, “diversity is important, but we won’t lower the bar.” [...]Miley wrote that he left Twitter feeling conflicted, as he sees Twitter as a platform for empowering underserved and underrepresented people. - Read more at:

An excerpt from Miley's post reads:
During my time at Twitter I experienced the pride and sense of purpose on seeing #Ferguson and #blacklivesmatter on the most prominent wall at Twitter HQ. This is something I will never forget.
And yet there were moments that caused me to question how and why a company whose product has been used as an agent of revolutionary social change did not reflect the diversity of thought, conversation, and people in its ranks. - Read more at:

In an interview with Code Switch, during which he talked of his recent decision to leave his job at Twitter — a job he loved — citing frustration over the company's overwhelmingly white workforce and internal resistance to changing it, Miley said that recruiting is the best place to start for a company, like Twitter, to address the issue of diversity, specifically to get more diverse candidates. As it is, he revealed There's a document at Twitter that lists the schools that Twitter wants to recruit from.[...]It listed Cal, Stanford, CMU, Waterloo, MIT, typical schools like that. Never listed any state schools. Never listed any HBCUs. ...” - Read more at:

In response to Miley's revelation of the company's approach to diversity, a senior Twitter executive offered an explanation. Engineering manager Leslie Miley wrote that he was asked to build a tool that would classify recruitment candidates' ethnicity by analysing their last name. The idea was intended to improve diversity among staff. Alex Roetter, Senior Vice President of Engineering, said that the "engineering-driven, quantitative solution" was a "blind spot". - Read more at:
