Archmere Physicians’ Society

We are proud to introduce the Archmere Physicians’ Society. Formed in 2017, the primary focus of the society is to create a resource for Archmere students and young alumni interested in pursuing a career in the field of medicine. Members will also have the opportunity to build and foster relationships with fellow physicians associated with Archmere Academy.

As a thank you, we invite Society members to join us for our inaugural reception on Tuesday June 13, 2017 in The Patio at Archmere Academy.  Our featured speaker will be Dr. Louis Bartoshesky ’62.

    2011 Archmere Graduate Trevor Brown Launches Company to Fight Opioid Crisis

    Archmere Academy graduate Trevor Brown '11, a Biomedical Engineer, is making headlines for a project he started working on as part of his senior project at the University of South Carolina. Trevor recently started his own company with the aim of being on the forefront of the opioid epidemic. DEact Medical Solutions was launched in April with his older brother Kyle, a 2008 graduate of Archmere. Privately funded at the moment, DEact has created a drug-neutralizing pouch that, when you add water, takes the active ingredients in drugs and renders them useless.

    DEact disposal technology offers the ability to chemically neutralize a broad range of pharmaceutical substances, reducing environmental impact and decreasing the opportunity for diversion. Through partnerships with local healthcare facilities, community agencies, home care and hospice, funeral homes, realtors, and others, DEact strives to reduce the amount of unused or expired prescription drugs in homes and stop addiction before it begins.

    At the moment, DEact works out of a lab at the University of Delaware's STAR campus and an office space at the Emerging Enterprise Center, the small business incubator on the riverfront in Wilmington. At the Enterprise Center, DEact was one of 11 companies to submit a three-minute video pitch in a competition called "Swim with Sharks". The winner gets a package totaling more than $22,000 in cash and services. DEact is one of three finalists that will compete at a live pitch event on Friday, September 22nd.

    Fashion Designer Amanda Phelan '06 Featured in The Museum of Modern Art

    2006 Archmere Academy graduate Amanda Phelan, the Creative Director and CEO of designer fashion label "Phelan", will be featured in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) starting in October. This is the first time in 73 years that MoMA has included an exhibit from the world of fashion and design. Amanda's Asymmetrical Metallic Shift Dress from the PHELAN S16 Collection will be featured in the shift dress category of "Items" on the 6th floor of MoMA.

    After graduating from Archmere, Amanda attended Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied painting before completing a degree in textiles. After completing her studies, she worked as a knitwear designer for top-tier labels Alexander Wang and Nicole Miller.
    As an emerging designer, Amanda distinguished herself by her unusual performance based runway shows, and forward thinking textile fabrications. She debuted her Spring 2016 Collection at New York Fashion Week in September 2015 to critical acclaim and has since been able to forge her own path in the industry, known for incorporating some sort of performance element into what she creates.

    The MoMA exhibit details are as follows:
    "Items: Is Fashion Modern?"
    The Museum of Modern Art
    October 1, 2017 – January 28, 2018
    Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi’s 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh. Items will also invite some designers, engineers, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials, approaches, and techniques—extending this conversation into the near and distant futures, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombination and use. Driven first and foremost by objects, not designers, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionality, culture, aesthetics, politics, labor, identity, economy, and technology.

    Alison Hilley and Vicki Spaeth Nyce love music and love kids. When they put the two together, they created Jump, Jive & Jam early childhood music classes.

    “After working for most of the childhood music programs in the Philadelphia area, we both felt a passion for taking all of our experience and creating our own super music program,” Hilley and Nyce said. “Our classes combine all the greatest aspects of the children’s programs we had taught for. The program allows kids to have a ton of fun while learning about rhythm and melodies. Additionally, we create kids music that parents can also enjoy.”
