It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton

PROBLEM-SOLVER: “This field is under-served. At some point, 50 percent of all women have conditions, such as incontinence, over-active bladders, bladder infections, and prolapsed bladders. One of our biggest challenges is that people have these problems and don’t know there’s a treatment.” Dr. Heather van Raalte, Director of Princeton Urogynecology, wants to help women with these problems to find the right treatment.

“I was always interested in science,” reports Dr. Heather van Raalte, Director of Princeton Urogynecology. “In college, I focused on marine biology, but I realized that I wanted to work more directly with people.”

That interest led her to medical school at Vanderbilt University and to a residency in obstetrics/gynecology at Stony Brook University Hospital in Long Island. “I was very interested in women’s health, and I went into ob/gyn. Within that field, there are four sub-specialties, one of which is urogynecology.” explains Dr. van Raalte. “This focuses on pelvic floor disorders, such as bladder and bowel control issues, voiding difficulties, recurrent urinary tract infections, and pelvic organ prolapse.”

MAKING MUSIC: “I really like working with the teachers. There are 15 teachers here, and they have such creativity. Some are dancers, some musicians, and they all have Music Together teacher training.” Susan Van Sickle, Director of Music Together Princeton Lab School, is proud of the teachers’ contributions to the success of the school. Shown is a group of the Lab School teachers.

Music is many things to many people. It transports, it soothes, it enlivens, it entertains, it excites, it enchants. And the sooner, the better, believe the folks at Music Together Princeton Lab School.

“Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasure of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV,” points out Music Together’s information statement.
