Around Town Continu! from page 11 He tells me they are conducted each Sunday of July and August and on September 5th. There is no heat in the church, so winter ser- vices are prohibited. "All the money collected goes right back into the community to serve the needy. We are not fund- ed by the Parks, but neither do we keep anything for our own church- es. We've donated to San Francis- co, Lewes Aid and Rehoboth Emergency Relief." As part of this program, services are also conducted at Delaware Seashore State Park at the Indian River Inlet. There isn't a church there, so the service takes place out in the open; usually a place in the clear- ing with a few benches. The hymn books are closed now and the congregation is bowed in silence with their own private thoughts. The minister dismisses the group and they exchange pleas- antries and greetings as they file out of this quaint historic struc- ture. The service is kept to 30 min- utes with the same format fol- lowed by everyone. "Our attendance usually runs around 500 people for the season," says AI Glindemann as he shows me the figures they meticulously keep. "Although, I think one Sunday in July we had close to 80 people. Our theme is really a closeness to nature and we try to draw on that. We want people in their natural environment," he adds. But he admits, it's hard because you don't have a local group of people you call your own congre- gation. He has been pleased by the attendance of some year-round residents who find it a quiet respite from the traditional trap- pings of a formal church setting. AI adds, "We are on call from April through November, and if a group wants us to, we will come over. If we think someone needs counseling, we can refer them to a local church." We walk down the plank steps that are staggered, holding onto the wooden railing that acts as a guide. Weeds and beach grass poke and push through the boards. The birds are singing, and off in the distance you can hear the lazy drone of a plane circling the beach. Up on the hill, the church stands like a miniature painting or a fad- ed photograph. O Q Q 1 For some, another unique expe- rience is around the corner in Sep- tember - an Artists' Studio Tour. Five local artists from the Cape Artists group in Lewes (Patricia Loftus, Rheba Tull, Lydia Bell Lynch, Howard Schroeder and Doris Ingrain) will open their stu- dios to the public for a tour. You'll have a chance to watch their work in progress, hear a talk by artist Howard Schroeder and enjoy refreshments. A drawing will be held for a painting done collectively by the artists. This is an effort by the group to educate the public while raising money for charity. Tickets may be obtained from the Lewes Chamber of Commerce and the New Devon Inn. You'll be hearing a lot more about this first time event. -:- i,,iiiii!6':r ": .......... +.,:- -:,:...... :+:+. ",  .. Teaches Doctors About Massage Harvard Medical School may be among the first to break down professional barriers between medical doctors and the alternative healing arts community. This top-notch medical school recently began teaching fourth-year med. students about massage and even made it a requirement that they receive a massage. The purpose of including massage within their final year of med. schooling was reportedly to introduce them to alternative modes of healing. This positive message about touch and being touched also reinforces former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop's call for doctors to be more personable and caring. A recent national survey, conducted by Harvard Medical School and the Chica- go College for Osteopathic Medicine, shows that 22 million Americans went to providers of alternative health care profes- sionals in 1990. They found that unconventional medicine has an enormous presence in the U. S. health care system. An esti- mated one in three persons in the U. S. adult population used unconventional therapy in 1990. Look for more releases on this historic medical movement in future updates of Holistic Halth Ne'ws.

Physicians who manage the care of cancer patients may use blood tests, X-rays or CT scans to determine the extent of the cancer or the development of a recurrence. When these tests are equivocal, or difficult to eval- uate because of previous surgery, the nuclear medi- cine study can provide valuable information. Small areas of abnormality can be detected and perhaps save the patient exploratory surgery. "This advanced technology is an excellent service for oncology patients," said Srihari Peri, M.D., Beebe's oncologist/hematologist. "Cancer patients already undergoing the ordeal of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation will be well- served by this diagnostic procedure, which is virtual- ly painless, more efficient and cost effective." This nuclear medicine test involves the use of mon- oclonal antibodies which are man-made proteins that are labeled with a radioactive tracer. This radioactive tracer is injected into the patient's vein and scans are obtained with a gamma camera at 48 and 72 hours. The images obtained are interpreted by a radiologist with special training in nuclear medi- cine. "Beebe is the only hospital in southern Delaware providing this diagnostic service," said Frances Esposito, M.D., a radiologist at Beebe Medical Cen- ter with special training in nuclear medicine. "This is an exciting new area in radiology because of the very specific nature of the test. The labeled monoclonal antibodies become intimately related to the cancer cells. This allows for diagnosis of small abnormali- ties or tumors in areas that are difficult to evaluate with other techniques."
