ABFE: A Philanthropic Partnership for Black Communities Helps Philanthropy Retain and Advance African Americans in the Field


New York, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2014

The Class of 2015, the 9th Class of ABFE Fellows, is an exciting group of philanthropic professionals. The six men and four women have vast experience across a range of issue areas including youth development, health, education and advocacy. The class is also geographically diverse, with three members from the South, three from the West, one from the Mid-West and three from the NY-DC corridor.

The Connecting Leaders Fellowship Program (CLFP) is a year-long, comprehensive leadership and professional development experience. Fellows will participate in leadership and personality assessments, receive 10 hours of individual executive coaching, and participate in monthly conference calls with their cohort. Fellows will also conduct a personalized project of their choosing.

The CLFP year officially kicks off with a four-day, intensive Leadership Summit, which takes place November 3-7, 2014 in Birmingham, Alabama.

ABFE launched the CLFP in 2005 to improve retention and career advancement for Black professionals in the field of philanthropy. Its track record is impressive. Over 80% of alumni are still in the field of philanthropy and CLFP alumni respondents to a 2012 survey credited the Fellowship in the following positive ways: Getting a promotion–12%; gaining more responsibility in current role–55%; Moving to a new organization in philanthropy–37%; Getting a promotion in a new organization–45%. In 2013-2014, three alumni were named CEO of their foundations.

ABFE’s first Leadership Summit in the South is going to Birmingham at the request and considerable planning of Lyord Watson ’12. Lyord is a founding member of the Birmingham Change Fund, a board member of the Community Investment Network, and he was recently elected to the Birmingham Board of Education. With a passion for encouraging a more participatory and strategic form of philanthropy in Birmingham, Lyord felt that the Leadership Summit was a natural catalyst to start a new conversation. Lyord regularly speaks in the language of ABFE Responsive Philanthropy in Black Communities framework and he remembers how rich his discussions were with people in Newark, NJ during his own Summit. “Bringing a talented group of experts and leaders who are passionate about change to Birmingham will be a wonderful gift for my city.”

A selection committee comprised of CLFP Alumni and ABFE members reviewed the thirty applications and made final recommendations of the current class. Fellows were chosen based upon a set of criteria covering their experience in philanthropy, their goals for the future, and their interest and passion for making systemic change in Black communities.

New York City Personal Injury Lawyer Kenneth A. Wilhelm Calls for Better Enforcement of Dangerous Sidewalk Sheds

New York, N.Y. (PRWEB) June 16, 2014

The findings of an in-depth investigation published in The New York World on May 30, talks about the serious dangers posed by sidewalk sheds in New York City. According to the report, sidewalk sheds are an increasingly common sight in the city where the Department of Buildings requires them at any construction, remodeling or demolition site.

However, what The New York World’s investigation recently found is that the special Scaffold Safety Team formed in 2007 under Mayor Michael Bloomberg has thinned out from 17 field inspectors in 2008 to nine in 2013. This reduction in enforcement staff, the report says, has caused the number of violations issued for faulty sheds to drop from 855 in 2009 to 337 in 2013.

Also, since January 2011, 39 pedestrians and construction workers have suffered injuries involving sidewalk sheds. The article cites examples of incidents where a victim was hit on the head by debris while walking near a sidewalk shed in the East Village as well as that of a child who suffered an electrical shock after she touched a sidewalk shed carrying live electrical voltage in Red Hook, Brooklyn. There are currently more than 10,000 sidewalk sheds in New York City, according to the article.

Sidewalk sheds that are improperly constructed or maintained can pose serious hazards to pedestrians and bystanders, said New York personal injury lawyer Kenneth A. Wilhelm. “A sidewalk shed is a structure erected over a sidewalk to protect pedestrians from objects that may fall from a nearby construction site. When these structures are not properly built, pedestrians could get hit by falling debris or equipment and suffer serious head injuries and other traumatic injuries.”

The city as well as the contractors and construction companies that put together these sheds have a duty to safeguard the public, he said. “I certainly hope that the city steps up enforcement of how these sheds are constructed and maintained. It is unfortunate that the staffing levels of the Scaffold Safety Team created specifically to monitor these sheds have come down. It is crucial at this point for the city to step up enforcement and protect New Yorkers from serious injuries caused by faulty sidewalk sheds.”

Study: Women With Asymptomatic Genital Herpes Infections Endanger Their Unborn Babies; CBCD Reviews the Medical Evidence


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) August 12, 2014

Infected with the genital herpes virus (HSV-2)? The CBCD recommends taking Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. – Greg Bennett, CBCD

Women with an asymptomatic genital herpes infection (an infection with no symptoms) can unknowingly pass HSV to their unborn children in the womb. HSV-2 can also infect babies if mothers give birth vaginally. However, most mothers with asymptomatic genital herpes dont even know they are infected. WebMD says that The vast majority — between 75% and 90% – don’t know they are infected because they don’t get, or don’t notice, herpes sores on their genitals. (See WebMD, published April 12, 2011) (2) Moreover, nearly all the time, these people had no obvious sign of herpes infection while they were actively shedding virus. (2) The CBCD urges expectant mothers to get tested for genital herpes (HSV-2) whether they have symptoms or not. This is important since, as Dr. Michelle Williams wrote, Genital HSV infection occurring during early pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of spontaneous abortion, intrauterine growth restriction, preterm labor and congenital herpes. (See Patient.co.uk, from October 16, 2012) (3) Dr. Williams works for the Hurley Group Primary Care Centres in London. In addition to getting tested for genital herpes, the CBCD recommends that infected women take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR to help the immune system target the latent HSV-2. However, they should stop taking it before getting pregnant, and start taking again after delivering the baby.

Click to learn more about genital herpes symptoms.

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that women who are planning a pregnancy, and who suspect they may have a genital herpes (HSV-2) infection, take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against HSV, and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, individuals infected with HSV (and other viruses) reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR. (4) The study authors also wrote that, We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms. (4)

Both products can be ordered online on the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR websites.

Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

The CBCD believes women should not take the possibility of an asymptomatic genital herpes infection lightly. This is because the number of women with a genital herpes infection is rising. Dr. Kumar wrote in a study that Genital herpes, which was considered to be a minor sexually transmitted disease (STD) in the past in developing countries, is rapidly increasing. (See the Journal of Dermatology, from February 2002) (5) Dr. Kumar is from the Department of Dermatology at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh, India. Another reason for women to be concerned is the fact that HSV-2 infection is more common in women (approximately one out of four women) than in men (almost one out of five). (See MedicineNet.com, Last reviewed July 2004) (6).

What treatments are available for herpes infections?

Two types of antiviral treatments against HSV are available: topical and oral. The treatments include penciclovir, acyclovir, famciclovir, and valaciclovir. However, their effectiveness is limited. For instance, a meta-analysis of five placebo-controlled and two dose comparison studies evaluated the effect of aciclovir, famciclovir or valaciclovir on symptoms. The meta-analysis showed that oral antiviral therapy decreases the duration and the associated pain of an outbreak by merely one day. (See Pharmacology & Pharmacy from September 2013) (4). There are also natural antiviral products that studies show to be safe and effective in reducing herpes symptoms. Two of these products are Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR.

We recommend that women carrying the HSV virus take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. Greg Bennett, CBCD
