Presbyterian Church’s ‘Passages’ program looks at Alzheimer’s
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

A former Wayne County resident will offer two views on Alzheimer’s Disease at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 7 at The Presbyterian Church in Geneva.

The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Huling Hummel will talk about “living well with dementia,” and “maintaining selfhood as the ‘self’ slips away” as part of the Geneva congregation’s ongoing “Passages” series in the Fellowship Hall. Huling Hummel, a former pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Lyons, has been a caregiver for a family member who was an Alzheimer’s Disease patient – and was later herself diagnosed with a precursor of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Huling Hummel is a member of the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2015-16 National Early Stage Advisory Group, which helps raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with the disease – by sharing their personal stories of living with dementia. She is active in the association’s Rochester and Finger Lakes Chapter, is a member of the speakers’ bureau, and leads a support group for those with dementia. She is a participant in a four-year clinical trial.

The speaker holds a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers College, a maters in divinity from New Brunswick (N.J.) Theological Seminary and a doctorate in ministry in preaching from McCormick Seminary. Her 15 years in parish ministry ended with her diagnosis of amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment, often an early indicator of Alzheimer’s Disease.

“Living well is about finding joy and happiness in spite of a diagnosis,” she said. “It’s about moving from ‘Why me?’ to ‘What’s next?,’ and focusing on the present, even as the events of the past fade … it’s about faith, hope, and love.”

The “Passages” program is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served. Those planning to attend should park in the lot off Washington Street, and use the door at the rear of the building.

East Hill's Third Annual Amazing Race
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Registration Now Open for the East Hill Family Medical, Inc’s Third Annual Amazing Race

Teams, Sponsors & Stations Can Sign Up Now!


(January 14, 2016; Auburn, NY)… Registration for East Hill’s 2016 Amazing Race is now open online at! Set to take place on Sunday, May 1st, the leisurely competition will once again challenge 2-person teams to trek through downtown Auburn, visit different stations and undertake an assortment of interesting and fun challenges. Registration is $40 per team and includes participant t-shirts, goody bags and admission to the after party at the Knights of Columbus on Market Street. Registration is open until April 11th, and all details can be found at

Modeled after the popular Emmy-winning television show, East Hill’s Amazing Race is open to participants ages 13 and up. Each 2-person team will be given a map with clues to take them across downtown Auburn and to the stations where they’ll complete challenges before moving to the next location. This year, we will have two different routes to accommodate those who wish to be more competitive in their approach and those who enjoy a more leisurely walk. The three teams - one from each route - that finish with the best overall time win!

Proceeds from East Hill’s 2016 Amazing Race and its sponsorship will support the purchase of a new pediatric dental imaging sensor. This sensor will allow the dentist to detect disease and plan treatment as it produces high quality diagnostic images with high resolution for children. This technology is the leading edge in dental treatment because it can be performed more efficiently, effectively and comfortably. It provides greater comfort and reduces exposure to radiation.

On behalf of the 11,000 Cayuga County citizens who benefit from East Hill Family Medical’s healthcare services, we hope you consider participating in this fun-filled event!! Your participation will help us to effect positive, measurable changes in the health of our community, as well as purchase equipment to make visits to the dentist easier for children.

For more information about competing, sponsoring or becoming a station, please contact Danielle at 315.253.6796, ext. 509.
