Print Story | Email Story
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — June is Men's Health Month, and Berkshire Health Systems (BHS) is presenting a special workshop with Dr. Mark Pettus promoting men's health, to be held both in-person or by Zoom. 
The Men's Health Workshop will be held on Tuesday, June 21 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the Zion Church, 74 First Street in Pittsfield.
Dr. Pettus, formerly the Director of Wellness and Population Health at Berkshire Health Systems, will touch on topics not covered by the average health workshop – including fat is good, love is essential and going barefoot in the morning sun helps your brain function. While the focus is on Men's Health, all are welcome to attend and will get something out of the presentation.
The event is being held in collaboration with the BHS Wellness Team, and registration is required. To register to attend the event in-person or to view the Zoom link, visit:

Jury Finds Pittsfield Man Guilty of Assault

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A Pittsfield man has been found guilty of domestic violence for an incident last year. 
Korey Laviscount, 37, was found guilty Monday by a jury in Central Berkshire District of single counts of assault and battery on a family or household member and strangulation. 
The commonwealth recommended a one-year sentence. Defense counsel recommended six months. Judge Jennifer Tyne sentenced him to serve one year at the Berkshire County House of Correction. 
On Nov. 11, 2021, Pittsfield Police responded to a home after a 911 hang-up. Upon arrival, officers heard yelling and observed an injured victim. Police determined that as the victim attempted to leave the address during an argument, Laviscount pulled the victim to the ground and strangled the victim.
