CHP Gets Support for 'Reach Out & Read' Initiative
01:04PM / Wednesday, August 08, 2018

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Community Health Programs has participated in the nationwide program "Reach Out & Read" for more than 15 years.

CHP is committed to supporting families in the Berkshires and beyond by keeping its Reach Out & Read program alive and well. A new study in Pediatrics featuring Reach Out & Read proves that the benefits of this model extend beyond literacy and help set children up for success.

The Reach Out & Read program has been supported in part by a $1,500 grant from the South Berkshire County Fund of Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, received in May 2018. With this money, CHP can buy between 500 and 600 books; last year, CHP

By Lia Spiliotes,
12:53PM / Wednesday, August 08, 2018

This past year, with strong bipartisan support, Congress invested nearly $10 billion in the nation's 1,400 community health centers, recognizing that a strong community-based system of care -- where people have certain access to doctors and preventive care -- will save lives and reduce health care costs.

National Health Center Week 2018, from Aug. 12-18, provides an opportunity to learn more about community health center (CHCs) and witness, firsthand, why we are at center stage in a changing health care landscape.

Health centers like Community Health Programs – we serve more approximately 30,000 residents at nine practices throughout Berkshire County -- are part of a nationwide

Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:37PM / Wednesday, August 08, 2018

It's still summer, but we're getting close to a new school year. One day, though, "back-to-school" will mean "off to college" for your children. Will you be financially prepared to help your kids cope with the costs of higher education?

Your first step, of course, is to know what you're up against, so here are some numbers: For the 2017-18 academic year, college costs (tuition, fees, room and board) were, on average, nearly $21,000 for in-state students at four-year, public schools and nearly $47,000 for students attending private colleges or universities, according to the College Board. And you can probably expect even bigger price tags in the years to

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Monday, August 06, 2018
This is the second in a series of interviews with the Berkshire delegation on legislative actions during this past session of the General Court.     LENOX, Mass. — State Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli thinks the House of Representatives had a very productive session.   But he is disappointed that two major topics were never fully addressed — health care and education.   The Legislature just completed the formal portion of the 190th session. While there will still be informal sessions, it is unlikely any major undertaking will take place until the new Legislature is in place in January. In the last two years, Pignatelli said the state did
