Part of Ms. Vecchio's role at Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center is to educate the community on cancer awareness.

She has worked to develop tools and teaching methods that actively catch people's attention and is resilient enough to keep going back until she affects the change she wants.
"My mom and dad always led by example. At a young age I understood how important it was to understand the needs of others and reach out to make a difference. This award recognizes the values that both my parents instilled in me and I am grateful for this acknowledgement," explained Ms. Vecchio. Ms Vecchio added, "I feel privileged to go to work each day and work with the people at Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center. The science of medicine is the same no matter where you go, it is the people that make the difference."
Ms. Vecchio works with the Cancer Education and Early Detection (CEED) patients, providing free education and screening as needed. Funding through the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Central & South Jersey Affiliate has allowed Ms. Vecchio to create the "VIP Program of Hunterdon County," which educates women who are 65 years and older to assure that they are receiving their annual screening mammogram. Statistics have shown that 46% of women covered by Medicare in Hunterdon County do not get their annual mammogram. The goal of the VIP program is to identify barriers that are preventing women from receiving this valuable exam and educate the women on the importance of obtaining their annual mammogram.

Sun Safety Program: Mary Vecchio, RN, MSN, APN, OCN of the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center talks to children at Bright Tomorrows Child Care Center at Hunterdon Medical Center about sun safety using her teaching tool "The Great Hot Dog Experiment. Pictured (left to right) Evan Gambrill of Ringoes, Scott Veneziale of Flemington and Jake Lachow of Flemington listen to Mrs Vecchio during her presentation. sun screen on one half of a hot dog, and leave the other half "bare. They are then instructed to put the hot dog in an aluminum pan and then place the pan in the sun and told to make daily journal entries about what they observe. They hypothesize what might happen, and document those hypotheses for later discussion. She calls the students "sun scientists," and talks to them about the importance of journaling their observations so they can discuss their findings at a later time. Ms. Vecchio then goes back to the school a few days or weeks later to discuss what the students have observed. On more than one occasion, however, the students could not wait for her to return to their school, and have called her at the office to give her updates on the hot dog. "One side of the hot dog is shriveling and getting smaller! said one group of kindergarten students who called to excitedly tell her what they observed. When she returns to the school to discuss the results of their experiment, she brings sunscreen for everyone. "The sun rays are so intense that they can "cook" the hot dog, while the sunscreen protects the surface of the skin which demonstrates the effects of sunscreen" explained Ms. Vecchio. By using something as simple as a hot dog and the sun, she communicates an incredibly important message to students on a level they can not only understand, but share with their parents.
