Summit H.S. Alums Breen, Haberl Named in Published Medical Study

Dr, Robert Rubino founded "Tomorrow's MDs", a research mentoring program at Summit High School.

SUMMIT, NJ - Two former Summit High School (SHS) students -- Ian Breen, Class of 2011, and Jack Haberl, Class of 2012 -- have been acknowledged as contributors to an important published medical study. 

The two were members of the research team assembled as part of "Tomorrow's MDs", a research mentoring program founded by Dr. Robert Rubino at SHS.
Of the "Tomorrow's MD's" program, Rubino said, "My hope is this mentorship program will ignite students’ interest in science, particularly medicine. By giving back my time and expertise to Summit High School students, I am optimistic they will someday return and do the same."

Rubino recently published a study in the Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology, an international, peer reviewed journal, describing the use of a new surgical device in an office-based procedure to remove intrauterine polyps and fibroids in women who suffer from abnormal uterine bleeding. 
The procedure, investigated through a research grant awarded to Rubino four years ago, was recognized to have low rates of adverse events, improved quality of life for women, and high physician acceptance.

This research is significant as it broadens surgical options for women. Traditional surgeries to remove fibroids are invasive and require an operating room setting under general anesthesia. Rubino's research challenges the status quo and establishes that the similar outcome can be achieved with less risk in the office setting. 

Rubino is the President of The Rubino OB/GYN Group of Northern New Jersey, which is comprised of highly-skilled, board-certified Obstetricians, Gynecologists, and Urogynecologists offering the most advanced, non-invasive solutions to women’s health care.  The Rubino Group features locations in Summit, West Orange, Clark, and Bayonne.
In addition to his medical practice, Rubino serves as the President of the Summit Common Council.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
