TelePulmonology Comes to Bassett’s School-Based Health Centers

Last spring Bassett’s School Based Health Centers (SBHC) launched telepulmonology services to connect its young patients with important sub-specialist care.


“School-Based Health is all about increasing health care access for our young people,” says Jane Hamilton, RN, School-Based Health Practice Manager. “These tele-visit consults are more comfortable in a familiar office and don’t require parents to miss a full day of work to travel for an appointment. This helps ensure the kids can get the care they need.”


The distance between Dr. Karen Zuidema Voter, pediatric pulmonology specialist at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and her patients is bridged by real time telehealth technology and the SBHC’s practitioners.


“We complete the physical requirements of the exam,” explains Hamilton. “The SBHC practitioner onsite listens through a stethoscope plugged into the computer. Meanwhile, Dr. Voter listens to the lung sounds through headphones in Rochester. If Dr. Voter needs something examined—like whether the patient’s abdomen is sensitive—the practitioner will relate what she feels while Dr. Voter watches the child’s face for signs of pain.”


Forward Momentum

Telepulmonology is SBHC’s newest telehealth service, but it is not its first, nor will it be its last. “We were the recipients of a HRSA Telemedicine Grant for School Based Health Centers,” says Hamilton. “COVID-19 really escalated telehealth for some practices within Bassett, but we’ve been doing it for over four years.”


SBHC started their telehealth program with psychiatric visits. They were simpler to implement since the visits don’t require any specialized equipment. These visits were able to greatly reduce the wait time for medication management appointments. Meanwhile, telemedicine between SBHC clinics allowed practitioners at one site to quickly see patients at another site when help was needed more urgently.

Telepulmonology represents SBHC’s first foray into sub-specialties. The volume of demand is far smaller than for psychiatric visits—but the services are also very valuable. “This program does wonders for our patients’ experience and access to care,” says Dr. Monica Brané, chief of pediatrics for the Bassett Healthcare Network. “Primary care pediatricians are well-equipped to treat and control typical asthma and pulmonary conditions. But kids struggling with rarer pulmonary conditions need the insights of a sub-specialist. SBHC’s telepulmonology services make it easier, faster, and more affordable to get these kids the help they need. This is telemedicine at its best.”


This finite group size made telepulmonology an opportunity to work out technical bugs and establish some effective standardized procedures. If this program continues to succeed, SBHC hopes to expand to pediatric gastrointestinal, neurological and endocrinological sub-specialties.


Outward Momentum

At its rollout, telepulmonology became available to all 21 SBHC sites. “During our planning, we estimated that SBHC would have 12 to 15 telepulmonology referrals in a year,” says Hamilton. “From when we started in March of this year, we’ve already had seven. That might represent a backlog that will soon level off, but for now we’re now ahead of schedule! Either way, there’s space in the program for more patients.”


As a result, since its launch the program has expanded to other Bassett pediatric offices in Cooperstown and Oneonta.


“This was hard work,” says Hamilton. “But I think the time was well-spent.”

Audubon Hawkwatch Open House in Oneonta to be held on October 2 from 10am-2pm

Featuring Hawk ID Workshop, Live Raptors, Trail Hike and Special Activities for Children

On Saturday, October 2 from 10 AM to 2 PM, the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society will host an open house at the DOAS Sanctuary and Hawkwatch on Grange Hall Spur Road, Oneonta. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
Directions are available at
Full Details including schedule for the day can be found at

PLEASE NOTE: Masks are not required for outdoor activities when distancing is possible, however they are required if people are in closer proximity (portions of the trail hike, in-the-barn sales, etc.).

Thousands of raptors of 15 species are counted each fall as they concentrate along the ridges overlooking Oneonta during their migration south for the winter months. The Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society has operated the Franklin Mountain Hawkwatch to survey hawks and eagles migrating past their wildlife sanctuary in the Town of Davenport for over 25 years. Volunteers count hawks, eagles and vultures passing the site on most days from late August through December. The site is noted for its flights of Golden Eagles and Red-tailed Hawks. In some years, over 200 Golden Eagles and more than 2000 Red-tailed Hawks have been recorded passing the site on their way south. The best flights generally occur on days with north or northwest winds, usually following cold fronts.

Open House Schedule

At 10:00am, one of the Franklin Mountain hawk counters will conduct a workshop on how to identify flying hawks followed at 11:00am with a trail walk through the Sanctuary which will end at the Hawkwatch. During the Trail Walk portion of the event, at ~11am, new DOAS Board Director, Rob Katz will lead children’s activities in the field area near the Sanctuary Barn. At 12:30pm, Wildlife Rehabilitator, Missy Runyan from the Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center will feature live raptors.

A note from photographer Nick Kelsh:

I recently taught the first Nick Kelsh iPhone Photography Workshop… For Kids! at The Bright Hill Literary Center in Treadwell, NY. It was a five day event. I had an intensive, fun curriculum planned and lots I wanted to teach these kids about taking pictures. I was in good shape. 

By 11 AM on day one it became clear that several of these precocious "twenty-first century techie kids" knew almost as much about using their iPhone cameras as I did. They didn’t know as much about photography, mind you, but they were pretty good with the bells and whistles on the phone. I had to regroup and quick. I had to fill four and a half days with meaningful content.

Here’s what I did: I quickly invented photo assignments. I even made it a competition! They were thrilled! 

We had a stop watch to make it official, and Anthony the college intern as a judge.

Delgado Announces Statement Commemorating September 11th

Today, U.S. Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) released the following statement on the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania:


“Twenty years ago today, our nation, our way of life, and our freedom was attacked. In a single day, we lost almost 3,000 Americans in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. For two decades, this day has marked loss and pain. But it also reminds us what service, strength, resiliency, and unity really mean.


Twenty years ago, we watched first responders run into fire to save lives. We witnessed passengers on a plane sacrifice themselves in order to stop another attack. In the following weeks and months, we saw our sons and daughters sign up to serve our country, to protect our freedoms and to bring justice to those who attacked our homeland.


We find ourselves today, on the 20th anniversary, a nation in pain. From the coronavirus to devastating floods, to losing 13 brave service members in Afghanistan, to political divisiveness teetering on violence, many of us are struggling. We are collectively overwhelmed with grief. We are fighting to find a purpose in this pain.


And we can win this fight with love.


On this horrific day, 20 years ago, love and duty drove firefighters into the twin towers. Love of country drove our service members and veterans to enlist. Love was the last thing on the minds of those who perished.


Amidst this suffering, this pain -- we must love one another, give love to one another, and we must never forget. We cannot forget the first responders who spent painstaking months sifting through the rubble. We cannot forget our service members who gave their lives to protect our country and our way of life. We cannot forget those who perished in the attacks.


We must make a choice, every single day, to give love and support to those who need it most. We must channel the resilience and unity our nation found 20 years ago. May God bless the souls of the loved ones lost; may God bless their family, friends and neighbors; may God bless our brave service members, veterans, and first responders; and may God bless America.”

Neon Nights Performance Fri and Sat

The next NEON NIGHTS performance is: 
Friday + Saturday, September 17 + 18, 8pm 
The Carriage House behind Mindl's General Store at 76 Main St in Stamford, NY

We're thrilled to present THE MOTHERHOOD PROJECT, created by Christy Escobar with collaborators Marinda Anderson, Rosa Gilmore, Keren Lugo, Kedren Spencer, and Sarah Todes, a reading of a new play in development that explores the decision to become or not become a Mother in these apocalyptic times. 

We will also be presenting visual art in the upstairs gallery by Melike Baskoylu, a Turkish-born interdisciplinary sculptor and woodworker based in Brooklyn, NY. Their practice pursues a marriage between Eastern and Western influences in form-driven narratives and pattern-makings, bridging the divide between traditional and emerging technology. Inspired by Ottoman-Safavid Era miniature paintings and late 20-21st century sculptural movements of US/Europe, they reinterpret the visual and spacial relationships central to fine woodworking and painting.

Following the show will be an outdoors dance party! Tickets are at, and purchasing tickets in advance is encouraged. Sliding scale $5-$25. Follow us @neoncaviar to learn more.
