Considering how many people suffer from it—and how many may, at some point in their lives, be afflicted—it’s too bad there isn’t more information readily available about the digestive disorder known as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Once again, the Quogue Library has identified a need for more open discussion and has invited an authority, Dr. Christine L. Frissora, to give a talk on this disorder and answer questions on Saturday, June 15, at 2 p.m.
Dr. Frissora is an associate professor of medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, where she is a member of the full-time faculty at the Medical College. She has given numerous presentations and has been a consultant for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Regional and National Advisory Boards. To reserve a seat, call the library at (631) 653-4224, ext. 4.

On Thursday, June 20, kindergarten students will be going on a field trip to the Atlantis Aquarium, sixth-graders will be celebrating their commencement the night before on a trip to Splish Splash, and it’s the final day of school for prekindergarten students, who will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m.
Friday, June 21, is the final day of school for kindergarten through sixth grade, and, as a special parting gift, the final report cards for the year will go home with the students on that day.
Speaking of students from our lovely village, Quogue resident Emily Hubbard has been named to the Spring 2013 Champlain College Dean’s List for academic achievements based on her semester grade point average of 3.5 or higher.
