Sturdy Memorial Advises Community To Beware Of Unauthorized Calls

Sturdy Memorial Hospital Logo

Several community members have contacted Sturdy Memorial Hospital regarding marketing calls they have received at home or on their cell phones where their caller ID identifies Sturdy as the caller. These calls do not originate at Sturdy or any of its affiliates. The practice is called “spoofing” in which outside companies are able to have another entity displayed on the caller ID to entice the public to answer the call.

According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the Truth in Caller ID Act, FCC rules prohibit any person or entity from transmitting misleading or inaccurate caller ID information with the intent to defraud, cause harm or wrongly obtain anything of value. Unfortunately, if no harm is intended or caused, the practice is not considered illegal.

The public is urged to not give out any personal information to unknown callers or purchase any product that they may be selling.  Phone calls from your doctor’s office do occur on occasion but if you are unsure if a call is legitimate the safest practice is to hang up and call the number you have for your physician’s office directly.

Sturdy Memorial Hospital and its Associated Medical Practices has never and will never sell, trade or lend patient personal information to any outside company for any reason. 

Sturdy Memorial Hospital is a full-service, independent, financially stable, not-for-profit acute care community hospital in Attleboro, Massachusetts.

The Sage School Announces Interactive Virtual Summer Workshops

The Sage School of Foxboro is excited to announce our virtual camp experience, providing a combination of advanced academics, adventures, creativity and innovation, through workshops, demonstration, experimentation, and hands-on learning.

A pivot from the traditional bricks and mortar summer camp, known as Summer Sage, this unique experience, which takes place June 29-July  31, will include weekly ‘camp in a box’ kits delivered to students near and far in Exploration (PK-K), Innovation (Grades 1-4), and Academy (Grades 5-8). 

Students will log on to Google Meet with same-aged peers for morning (9 AM -11 AM) and afternoon (12 PM – 2 PM) sessions. Sessions will consist of short periods of teaching, followed by demonstrations, experimentations, crafts, arts, podcasting and videomaking to name a few. The sessions are taught by Sage faculty and alumni, through an integrated approach, incorporating STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) and Humanities (literacy, history, social studies), in ways that will spark curiosity and inspire discovery.

Youngest campers in Exploration can become an official Sage paleontologist for the week and explore history through prehistorical activities and crafts, creating replica fossils and dinosaur eggs in the workshop “Digging for Dinosaurs.” Sage Innovation campers can build endurance, coordination and balance in “Multi-Sports and Fitness” or enjoy fun and simple mechanics experiments in “Fun with Physics.” The older campers can build their STEM skills in workshops like “Build a Robot,” “Code Your Own Game”, “Video Editing Skill Builder,” “Basic of Movie Writing”, “Physics”, “Podcasting” and so much more

Sessions are $200 for the week, which includes the themed kit and Summer Sage t-shirt. This summer, participants will have the unique opportunity to travel “virtually” to and participate in classes with others in a “classroom” where their curiosity will be piqued and they can learn from teachers who are passionate for their subject matter. Registration and a full listing of workshops is available online at sageschool.org/summer-sage.
