Brogan & Partners' Deidre Bounds named Board Chair of Sphinx Organization.

[Birmingham, MI] - Deidre Bounds, managing partner at Brogan & Partners Convergence Marketing has been named board chair of the Sphinx Organization in Detroit. The Sphinx Organization provides educational programs and competitions for black and Latino musicians, to encourage diversity in the classical music world.

"I am honored to serve as board chair for this amazing organization," said Bounds. "Detroit is filled with young classical music talent, and Sphinx is offering them experiences and opportunities that otherwise may not have been afforded them.

This fall Sphinx Laureates at Carnegie Hall will feature the Sphinx Chamber Orchestra and the Harlem Quartet, both comprised of top alumni of the prestigious Sphinx Competition for young Black and Latino string players.

The name Sphinx was given to the organization to represent some of the founding principles that guided its conception. The Sphinx represents the historical and geographical source for many minorities and exemplifies the power, wisdom and persistence that we hope to instill in our participants. Like the Sphinx, it is up to the beholder, the listener, to interpret and appreciate from the music what is ultimately a reflection of internal emotions and spiritual experiences.

The Sphinx Organization is a national non-profit founded in 1996 by Aaron P. Dworkin. A violinist himself, he founded the organization to help overcome the cultural stereotype of classical music, and to encourage the participation of Blacks and Latinos in the field.

Breast cancer survivor to discuss controversial new mammogram screening guidelines.

Ellyn Davidson addresses confusion and dangers of guidelines at Skyline Club event

[Birmingham, MI] - Ellyn Davidson, a partner at Brogan & Partners Convergence Marketing and breast cancer survivor is not happy about the sweeping changes in the newly proposed mammogram screening guidelines, and will discuss the controversy at the Greater Detroit Area Health Council's Coffee & Controversy event starting at 7:30 a.m. on January 12, 2010 at the Skyline Club in Southfield.

The new guidelines are proposed by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force, which is a group of health experts convened by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. According to the new guidelines, routine screening of average-risk women should begin at 50, instead of the current age of 40, and end at age 74; women should get screening mammograms every two years instead of each year; and breast self-exams have little value, based on results from several large studies. The American Cancer Society disagrees with the proposed new recommendations, and continues to stand behind the current guidelines of screenings every year starting at age 40.

"We've spent 25 years educating women on the importance of early breast cancer detection, self breast exams and routine mammograms beginning at age 40," said Davidson. "As a breast cancer survivor who was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at age 36, if I'd followed these guidelines I might not be here to talk to you today."

Other speakers at the event will include Sharon Helmer, M.D., Clinical Service Chief of the Karmanos Cancer Center Imaging Department and Medical Director of Karmanos Breast Imaging, and Zeina Nahleh, M.D., Leader of the Breast Multidisciplinary Team at the Karmanos Cancer Center. The event is $35 or GDAHC Members, and $50 for non-members, and is sponsored by the Karmanos Cancer Center. To register, visit www.gdahc.org.
