The Control Group To Host International Rescue Committees Film Screening of Escaping Syria

Photo by: Timea Fauszt/IRC

The Control Group (TCG) will be hosting a film screening of “Escaping Syria” with the International Rescue Committee on July 16th, 6:30pm at their Little Italy office (1350 Columbia Ave, 9th flr). “Escaping Syria”, is a short documentary film about four families forced to flee their homes in war-torn Syria. The IRC will conduct a short QA session/ presentation where they will share their current programming that is taking place in Syria. Afterwards, guests can enjoy drinks donated by The Control Group and food donated by Chipotle while meeting with other attendees.

The plight of Syria has been a major focus in the media as of late. The number of Syrians who have fled to neighboring countries to escape violence has surpassed four million, according to data released by the United Nations refugee agency.

The Control Group has a long-standing partnership with IRC, specifically with their youth program. Recently TCG conducted mock interviews with students from the IRC to prepare them to enter into the workforce. San Diego has a large number of refugees with an average of 200 newcomers arriving in San Diego County each month, both children and adults. The IRC helps these refugees transition into their new lives, and raises awareness within the community about the challenges they face as new Americans.

We have had the pleasure of working alongside the IRC in support of Hoover Highs Academy of Information Technology. Through this collaboration, we’ve realized just how important the work that the IRC does really is, not only for our refugee population, but for our community as a whole, said Sean Shahrokhi, Director of Communications for The Control Group. Without organizations like the IRC, there would be countless refugees here without the proper support and education to pursue those freedoms and liberties that they have fought so hard to obtain. TCG is committed to help do our part in recognizing this vision.

Space is limited for this event. If interested in attending or would like additional information, please contact Sophie Cheetham at Sophie.Cheetham(AT) or 1 619-641-7510 x 293.

Medical Screening for Therapists: The Sherlock Holmes Approach

Medical Screening for Therapists: The Sherlock Holmes Approach
Event on 2015-04-24 14:00:00

You are seeing a patient for low back, hip or neck pain. Is there any reason to suspect occult cancer or infection, or a fracture? An important clinical decision making element for therapists is recognizing red flag warning signs that a patient should see a medical doctor.

This seminar will help prepare therapists to assume the role of interdependent practitioner working within a collaborative medical model. A proposed examination scheme designed to promote efficient and effective collection of patient red flag findings will provide our discussion structure. Professional communication with patients and medical doctors will be a central theme throughout the seminar. Lecture, small group activities/discussion and laboratory sessions will comprise the learning experiences.

Patient cases will be presented to apply important medical screening principles. For example:

1. Susan states she has unusual neck pain. She has spent hours and hours working at a potter's wheel the past two to three weeks. She wonders if her neck posture during pottery-making could cause her neck pain.

2. Jeremiah describes L chest wall pain that started six months ago while doing some heavy lawn mowing. He has improved slowly, noting he can swim and mow the grass pain free if he tapes his chest. He wants to know how much longer it will take for this to heal, and asks is there a chance the pain could be heart related.

3. Jim describes joint pain in his arms and wonders if strengthening exercises would be good for him.

4. Amber woke three days ago with intense burning in her L shoulder blade. She describes having a severe back injury one year ago, which PT helped. She wonders if her back injury could be linked to this shoulder pain.

Based upon these four patient scenarios:
– One patient required an urgent referral
– One patient received a non-urgent referral
– One patient received a recommendation to see a physical therapist within the next few days
– One patient required patient no action at all.

Can you match the four patients with the four outcomes? Can you think of key questions to help identify patients needing to see a medical doctor?

During the course we will use a number of cases like these to explore critical red flag questions including what is the best first question to ask facing real-life scenarios.

United Patients Group and The Cash Hyde Foundation Present the Screening of American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny in Mill Valley

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2013

Medical marijuana resource United Patients Group has teamed up with pediatric cancer foundation – Cash Hyde Foundation to present an exclusive viewing of the new documentary by filmmaker Kevin Booth, American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny. The event will be on Thursday, June 20, 2013 at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley, CA beginning at 6:30 pm. For tickets, you can go to the 142 Throckmorton Theatre website.

We have two very special guests attending this exclusive screening. Anyone interested in the politics surrounding cannabis in this country should definitely see it. said John Malanca, founder and owner of

As a tribute to Cash Hydes birthday, the Hyde family will be in attendance to meet with audience members, industry leaders and to answer questions. Cash was taken too soon after a hard-fought battle against pediatric cancer. He would have been 5 years old on June 21st.

Also in attendance will be marijuana advocate and author Clint Werner, who wrote the book Marijuana Gateway to Health: How Cannabis Protects Us from Cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease.

All proceeds of the event will be donated to the Cash Hyde Foundation, which is on a mission to end pediatric cancer. The foundation uses donations like these to do many things, but being able to give back to the young patients is the most rewarding, said Malanca. Your ticket donations will help us to help other families struggling with cancer.

We celebrated Cashys birthday last year by delivering customized Little Tyke’s cars to UCSF, California Pacific Medical and Oakland Childrens Hospital and well be doing the same this year! said Malanca.

In honor of Cashys 5th birthday on Friday, June 21st, United Patients Group and the Cash Hyde Foundation will deliver these customized Little Tykes cars that are fully equipped with IV poles to hospitals around the Bay Area.

These Little Tykes cars enable gravely ill children to scoot up and down the hallways. For those brief moments, a child can pretend that they have a normal life. Hospitals tell us that these cars are very helpful when children need to move around after surgery, the children actually want to get up to play when they see these vehicles. said Mike Hyde – father of Cash Hyde. For every minute that a child is smiling, is a minute that cancer isnt winning. states Mike Hyde.
