Chompie's and Playworks Team Up to Stop Bullying on Phoenix area Playgrounds
Donations from the new Chompie's kids menu sales provide funding to run this much needed program for cash strapped schools.

According to elementary school age kids, bullying occurs most often during recess. Teachers and principals explain that the transition from recess to classroom teaching time is often the most difficult and wasted time portion of each day. That's why Chompie's,  Arizona's New York Deli, through its "Chompie's Cares" program, has teamed up with the nonprofit Playworks Arizona to put an end to bullying and increase teaching time in area schools.

'Chompies and Playworks collaborated to make a new kids menu for Chompie's that helps teach kids how to solve conflicts and promote inclusion within schools and on the recess yard. Chompie's is making a donation to Playworks for every kids meal purchased from the new kids menu to help schools run much needed programs that teach kids to be inclusive and boost self-confidence.

The new interactive and educational kids menu at Chompie's offers 19 different breakfast, lunch and dinner kids meals and introduces a new gluten-free friendly section with menu items such as waffles, macaroni and cheese and flatbread cheese pizza. The regular kids meals include all-time favorites like chicken fingers, French toast and cheeseburgers, plus a selection of sliders. The new menu also includes fun interactive learning games that teach sharing, inclusion and conflict resolution.

 "This partnership with Chompie's is the first of its kind in the nation for our organization," said Chuck Warshaver, Executive Director of Playworks Arizona. "Chompie's not only is making a donation for each kids meal purchased, but they allowed us to help design the menus to include games and activities focused on our core values of inclusion. We couldn't ask for a more effective partnership to talk to kids and parents to help reduce bullying, increase teaching time and increase physical activity in our schools."

"We visited some of the schools using the Playworks program and were overwhelmed by the response from principals, teachers and students as to how successful the program is at reducing bullying and increasing teaching time for teachers thanks to fewer students being sent to the office for bad behavior and how the transition from recess to class time dramatically improved," said Neal Borenstein, owner of Chompie's. "We sought to create a new kids menu that encompassed the core values that Playworks teaches on the recess yard, and based on early responses from our guests we know we succeeded."

Center for Dermatology
14275 N. 87th St. Ste. 110
Scottsdale, AZ 85260

Did you know that one in five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime? The month of May is Melanoma Awareness Month and Scottsdale-based Center for Dermatology is teaming up with the American Academy of Dermatology to paint the nation orange for skin cancer awareness on Monday, May 6 - Melanoma Monday®. Center for Dermatology will host a free skin cancer screening at their offices in North Scottsdale.

Skin cancer affects nearly 20% of Americans, and more than 1 million new cases are diagnosed each year. Of these cases, more than 76,000 are melanoma, a cancer that claims nearly 11,000 lives each year. Numbers like that make a world without skin cancer seem to be an impossible goal. But it is in our reach. Skin cancer is highly treatable when caught early. The five-year survival rate for people whose melanoma is detected and treated before it spreads to the lymph nodes is 98 percent. Yet, sadly, one American dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, almost every hour.

"If skin cancer is detected early, it can be cured," said Dr. Gary McCracken, a board-certified dermatologist with Center for Dermatology. "We offer this free service to our community so that patients have the opportunity to come to our board-certified dermatologists and get their skin evaluated. It's important that people living in Arizona get their skin checked regularly because of how much sun exposure we receive in our state," he said.
