Keep your get-healthy resolution, stay active treadmill N1203P23009H.jpg

WILLISTON — It is documented that the majority of New Year’s resolutions fail and most do so early in the year, but if your resolution involves improving nutrition and increasing your level of physical activity, the American Cancer Society is urging you to stick it out to reduce your cancer risk.

According to the Society, more than half a million Americans will die of cancer in 2016, but about one-third of cancers are linked to poor diet, physical inactivity and carrying too much weight.

BURLINGTON — No two patients with lung cancer are exactly alike — some are former smokers and others have never smoked — and often, different genetic mutations are responsible for their disease. While treatments exist to target many of these mutations, cancer cells can be tricky to treat: they can adapt and sneak around the targeted drugs and continue to grow.

Posted on January 25, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



BURLINGTON— One in four Americans (86 million people) have prediabetes, up from 79 million in 2010, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), though only 10 percent of those with prediabetes know they have it. But with awareness and simple actions, people with prediabetes may prevent or delay the onset of diabetes.

The Greater Burlington YMCA is urging Vermonters to learn their risks for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, and to take preventive steps to potentially reduce their chances of developing the disease.

Act 46 objectives, incentives & deadlines

Posted on January 21, 2016 |
By Gaen Murphree



Act 46 requires that communities form unified pre-K–12 school districts that serve at least 900 students by July 1, 2019. The law is designed to address rising costs in education — the number of Vermont schools has remained steady but the number of students served in those schools has dropped over the past several decades — and to provide greater equity in educational opportunities. Before the law went into effect, Vermont’s 303 public schools were governed independently in close to 280 school districts.
