Check Our New PRESS RELEASE for January as National Mentoring Month

Start 2015 with a purpose: to help someone who really needs your special help in any way. Mentoring Power goes much beyond education, leadership, learning --- it can in some cases help save someone's life. Call on a neighbor you have not seen in awhile, help a child to read, babysit for a Mom that needs some extra help, encourage someone with a progressive illness to eat, exercise, or get the medical help needed. This is the "real" POWER of MENTORING.

Did you know that January is National Mentoring Month?

My birthday is on February 20, five days after Valentine's Day, but something more important than my birthday (which I am most lucky to have this year) is National Mentoring Month going on right now, in January!

Below is a link describing January as National Mentoring Month! If you have not read "Mentoring Power" or its secret sister publication, "Reflections & Connections: Personal Journeys Through the Life Sciences," I suggest reading them NOW! Do you want to make a difference, then go out and mentor someone or write for this blog. Have you worked with your children, tutored a child, volunteered as a sports leader, these are all examples of mentoring.

Since I had my unfortunate and unexpected experience, I am limited to walking around the track at our local high school for one mile, this is 10-11 circles around depending on whether I walk in the inner or outer areas. I watch the coaches, some of which I am convinced are volunteers after school working with kids. It is incredible. I was a tutor once and maybe that is my calling, I am not sure yet, but I miss my kids from k-12 that I worked with for 10 years part-time from my full time duties wherever. The kids filled a void in my life. I miss the kids I taught.

If you feel the same as I do and can make the time mentor while you can and do not forget to get your copy of "Reflections & Connections" at and "Mentoring Power" at -- check the photo on Mentoring Power and "Be Someone Who Matters to Someone Who Matters."

Something I have bave been very interested in and participated in on a limited scale is telementoring. There is an interesting article on what Akron Children's Hospital is doing in this area at

A direct quote from the cited article:

"“Telementoring allows physicians to perform new techniques safely by communicating remotely with an experienced advisor,” said Todd Ponsky, MD, a pediatric surgeon at Akron Children’s Hospital who specializes in minimally invasive surgery."

Dr. Todd Ponsky emphasizes:

"The telementor is intended to provide an extra set of eyes and ears, not to serve as an essential part of the surgery’s success,” Dr. Ponsky stressed."

Dr. Tod Ponsky is the son of Dr. Ponsky who was chairman of our library committee at Mt. Sinai Hospital for many years. He operated on my husband when he had his first hernia long ago and Dr. Ponsky senior patented inventions he made for minimally invasive surgical techniques. Mt. Sinai Medical Center closed in 2000, but shots of the website remain on the Internet Archive's Way Back Machine.

Although we did not include telementoring and medical type mentoring at "Mentoring Power," it is my understanding that Reflections & Connection: Personal Journeys Through the Life Sciences IV may tackle the subject. Volume 2 in the series includes health care. The entire book, including Volumes 1 & 2 is an incredible bargain in Ebook format on at
