Dear John,

Here is a piece from The Mount Saint Michael Academy Newsletter about the work of Dr. Anthony Maddalo, ’76.

Dr. Anthony Maddalo ’72, chief advisor to the Mount’s Sports Medicine Program, came to the Mount on Thursday, February 27 to give a lecture to sophomores, juniors and seniors enrolled in the Mount’s Sports Medicine program. Dr. Maddalo is a trainer for the NY Rangers and has a successful orthopedic surgery practice in Westchester.

Dr. Maddalo will be instrumental in developing and implementing rigorous externships for participating students, who will be able to intern with college level athletic trainers, watch orthopedic surgeries and work with therapists who treat sports injuries.

Says Dr. Maddalo, “This program is unique in that it will help students embark on a fast track to a variety of sports medicine careers within an unprecedented exposure to clinical situations.”

Currently, 42 students (sophomores, juniors and seniors) are registered in the program, taking advanced courses in biology, anatomy, math and sciences and learning the core principals and practices of athletic training.

Health insurers now face a radically different marketplace as the shift in employer health benefits to defined contribution has triggered a boom in private exchanges. The new mantra is to keep costs under control and involve consumers in plan purchasing.

Learn the details of how private exchanges work, which models are most successful at gaining members, and the pros and cons for insurers of taking part in nonproprietary exchanges versus building their own. Gain a solid understanding of the current legal, marketing and general business strategies for insurers and their employer clients, with an eye on what is likely to come tomorrow.

Attend this unique virtual conference on Feb. 25 from the convenience of your own office. Your entire management team will hear directly from many of the nation’s private exchange experts, including top industry consultants, lawyers working in the health care sector and Wall Street analysts.

JEMAIL: Kilgannon, Brian [MC1976] remembers Buckley, Gerald ‘Jerry’ F. [MC1964 RIP]

Bob & Noreen, Vin & Kathy, Prayer Group,

Below is an email an email sent to me by Fellow Jasper and Prayer Group Member Brian Kilgannon ‘ 76. Brian’s beautiful words so well express and capture the essence of a very good man. I want to share this heartfelt tribute. Bob and Vin, I hope that you are able to share this with Jerry’s family and your Team Mates. Thank you. God Bless.

Phil Colon

From Brian Kilgannon;

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jerry Buckley.

I first met Mr. Buckley in 1964, when he was a day camp counselor, along with my sister, at Tilden Day Camp in Brooklyn. He was handsome, charismatic and very friendly in a caring way to a nine year old, namely me. Later, I had Mr. Buckley as my Economics teacher in Nazareth High School, and I remember my grades in Economics were so good that he exempted me from the Economics final in 1972.

Jerry Buckley is the one clear reason why I decided to go to Manhattan College. he was very proud of his association with Manhattan and I vividly recall him wearing his Manhattan College Spiked Shoe Club jacket to class.

Mr. Buckley was a gentleman and a fine athlete, an excellent role model to young men and an exemplar of what it is to be a Jasper.

We never anticipate the end. Our Christian faith instructs us in the resurrection of the soul and the transition to eternal life.

Jerry Buckley lives now in our memories, with his flashing smile and adherence to values ever present in the lives he touched.

For these good & wholesome memories I say thank you to Mr. Buckley, and each of us who were touched by his presence are better for having known him.

Brian Kilgannon ‘76
