    The Elizabeth Wende Breast Clinic's founding and continuing philosophy is that each patient is treated as uniquely as her situation deems. Every patient receives the full results of her exams before she leaves the clinic. Testing, such as ultrasound, additional views and core biopsies, are performed during the same appointment, rather than have the patient return at a later date. This helps to reduce a woman's anxiety over waiting for additional appointments, tests and results."

    Not Me, Not Now has expanded its efforts by visiting area schools to discuss the program in more detail and explore how various components can be incorporated into existing curriculums. This outreach has increased the awareness of Not Me, Not Now to those who were once unfamiliar with the program. Many administrators and teachers have found that the materials compliment their lessons.

    Pilates mat work is a method of body conditioning that combines a unique series of stretching and strengthening exercises that strengthen and lengthen muscles, increase flexibility and balance, build strength in the core/abdominals, improve posture and spinal alignment, improve joint mobility and blood circulation, reduce stress, and teach the body and spine to work efficiently, therefore preventing injuries. Pilates mat work is an engaging and intelligent form of body conditioning for people of all ages and physical abilities.

    Melanie Aceto of Pilates Matworks is certified through the Kane School of Core Integration in NYC.
