Print Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. Jason Seacat, professor of psychology at Western New England University, will give a talk titled "Promoting Recycling Behaviors in Massachusetts" as part of MCLA's Green Living Seminar Series at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. 
 
Green Living Seminar Series webinars are free and open to the public; community members can register for each lecture at mcla.edu/greenliving. All seminars take place weekly on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. through April 14. 
 
Seacat's major program of research explores the interplay of negative social stereotypes, stigmatization and personal health behaviors. As a social-health psychologist, he primarily seeks to understand how social interactions may impact the health behaviors and outcomes of stigmatized individuals. Additionally, Seacat actively collaborates with researchers on issues pertaining to diet-related decision making and the consequences of mental illness stigma on treatment-seeking behavior. 
 
Seacat also maintains an ongoing program of research examining psychosocial predictors of pro-environmental behavior. Dr. Seacat's current work examines the role of community-level factors in promoting recycling behaviors throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

North Adams Vaccine Clinic Passes 16,000 Doses Given

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — More than 16,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered through the Northern Berkshire vaccine clinic.
 
Board of Health Chairman John Meaney, who as general manager of Northern Berkshire EMS has been part of the group operating the clinic, said it wasn't clear how many North Adams residents that included. 
 
As of last week, more than 5,000 residents in North Adams and Clarksburg had received at least one dose. The state tracks inoculations by ZIP code, which the city and town share, and may also include the town of Florida. The Berkshire Vaccine Collaborative is open to any Massachusetts residents and those who work or attend school here but reside in other states.
 
The clinic has been able to administer double the number of doses when it first opened, with more than 1,500 per clinic last week. But the number is dependent on the doses the collaborative gets from the state.
