The late Dr. Henry William Huffnagle has donated a conservation easement on a 217-acre Drumore Township farm to the Lancaster Farmland Trust. The farm is the largest ever preserved by the private nonprofit group, which formed in 1988.
 

Dr. Huffnagle, a urologist, nature lover and farmland preservationist, died in October at age 83. He inherited the farm from his father and made it his family’s weekend escape.
 
“I think it’s in everyone’s interests to operate it as a farm in perpetuity,” said Dr. Huffnagle’s son, Henry W. Huffnagle IV.
 
In 1996, Dr. Huffnagle donated a wooded ravine to the Lancaster County Conservancy.
 



Drs. Ripchinski, Kontra interviewed on technology and the flu


Michael R. Ripchinski, M.D., Chief Physician Executive for Quality, spoke to Central Penn Business Journal and LNP about Lancaster General Hospital’s “most wired” designation in an annual survey by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.

 

Joseph M. Kontra, M.D., LGH Chief of Infectious Diseases, told LNP that although the flu shot was just 42 percent effective this season, it’s still worth getting.
