Listen for the RWJBarnabas Health Civic Leader Salute this Sunday during the Yankees game against the Boston Red Sox.
RWJBarnabas Health, New Jersey’s largest hospital and health care system, salutes Carlos Lejnieks, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Essex, Hudson and Union Counties, and Chairman of Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Jersey, for his commitment to mentoring the community’s youth.

In 2008, Carlos took over an atrophied Big Brothers Big Sisters agency, which went from serving approximately 100 youth to serving over 1,100 in just four years. Under his leadership, Big Brothers Big Sisters has received numerous awards from local, state and national entities, including a formal recognition by President Obama.

In 2011, Carlos was a featured speaker at the Newark Peace Summit headlined by the Dalai Lama. His leadership qualities have led him to serve on various committees for President Obama, Governor Chris Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker, and the board of Jersey City Medical Center. In 2016, Carlos was asked to ring the Closing Bell at the NASDAQ in celebration of National Mentoring Month.

RWJBarnabas Health, New Jersey’s largest hospital and health care system, thanks Carlos Lejnieks for his dedication and service to the community and its youth.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, and it is estimated that one person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour. During Skin Cancer Awareness Month, the American Academy of Dermatology encourages everyone to make sure their skin is “Looking Good in 2016” by protecting it from the sun’s ultraviolet rays and checking it for signs of skin cancer.

The first symptom of melanoma is often a change in a mole, or the appearance of a new mole that has ABCD characteristics. These ABCD rules can help you tell a normal mole from cancer: http://ow.ly/4nfHW1

May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month: a great time to renew your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle. Physical inactivity along with high blood pressure, and smoking are risk factors for heart disease. So, be the exception rather than the rule. Exercise for a healthier heart.

According to the Office of Minority Health, Hispanic women are both 40 percent more likely to have cervical cancer, and to die from cervical cancer as compared to non-Hispanic White women. Cervical cancer can be a crafty disease. It can grow unnoticed in your body. The best way to outwit it is with a Pap test.
April is National Minority Healthy Month and Barnabas Health reminds all women, but especially those at high-risk, to remember to schedule a pap test with their OB/GYN.
The frequency of clinical exams and pap tests vary by age and risk factors. Talk to your physician about which routine examinations are right for you.
