together this location and we wanted to thank the community in baltimore. as a plastic surgeon i deal a lot with breast health. it was a very important issue for us so we put together the steps for the cure. we wanted it to be fun, exciting. it's bryant park comes to baltimore. it's breast cancer survivors walking the runway in special outfits made for them. we're celebrating their survival, thinking of women walking the same steps and trying to raise funds for a special organization, the breast cancer research foundation. >> do you know what you're going to be wearing? have you seen it? >> oh, yeah. >> how do you like it? >> it's gorgeous. it's not totally together but it's going to be fantastic. >> it's also got to be incredibly emotional. you two are modeling but are both breast cancer survivors. jeannie, have you thought at all about what this means to participate in something like this? >> oh, it's fantastic.

9:16 am
through eastern canada providing us with a deep chill for today. the neck band of clouds and rain rolling through the upper midwest. that is actually a push of warmer temperatures. that will try to get in here for tomorrow. until then we're actually looking for, again, clearing sky. today more sunshine and we've seen -- than we've seen most of the week, the clouds come back in tomorrow morning. maybe an afternoon shower but better chance of showers and storms may fire up on saturday afternoon. with even warmer temperatures and approaching cold front. 67 today. clearing sky. for those of you still dealing with the clouds but remain well below normal and for tonight not as chilly, we're back to about 51. tomorrow, we'll see the reversal with the clear skies in the morning giving way to thickening clouds and maybe an afternoon shower. our high up to around 72. catch us on line at abc2news.com. get our latest, well, weather information, interactive doppler radar and our weather graphics on your computer screen at the bottom of the weather page. 9:16. back to you. "2 your health" -- we're still eating leftovers from sunday's tailgate at the ravens
9:17 am
game. burgers, dogs, ribs. is there a way to have comfort food and still control our waistline at the same time? melissa, our nutrition and wellness expert puts it on the plate for us. let's have a beer. >> all right. i'm ready. when it comes to tailgating obviously we all went beer, right? it's pretty high in calories. if you go for the lite beer you're not always getting the lite option. that means it's lighter than its counter part but not as compared to the other lite beers on the market. when you're looking for lite beer, look for one that is under 75 calories. i brought beck's. if you never tried it it's good. if you don't want the lite beer, what you can do is for every beer you have you have to promise you'll have a bottle of water in between. it will not only cut down on your calories, it will help
9:18 am
keep you hydrated outside. >> this is beck's premiere lite. >> 64 calories, it's good, try it. >> you say chicken instead of the hamburgers and hot dogs. >> yes. we still want good tailgate fair but you have to cut down on the calories a little bit. barbecued chicken. on the side instead of macaroni salad or potato salad or chips go for the corn chips. you can add a little salsa to that as well. >> not a bad deal. garlic mash bodyos. >> this is -- garlic mash potatoes. >> you you know these are going to be on everyone's buffet table heading into the holidays. they can add up to thousands of calories. it's very easy to eat 3,000 to 5,000 calories in a thanksgiving meal. >> how many? >> 3,000 to 5,000 calories in a thanksgiving meal. there are ways to make the side dishes a little more healthy. you can swap out the white flour pasta for wheat pasta.
9:19 am
instead of the full fat cheese you can use a little of -- a little higher flavor cheese like a bleu cheese, something stronger because you don't need as much in there. you can use evap raid milk as well as, instead of the butter. same for mashed potatoes. you can do that and add -- smash up potatoes and add in garlic. add in spices because it will taste as good as if you dumped the whole stick of butter in there. >> hot chocolate? >> yes. my favorite trick for that is to buy dark chocolate chips, melt them in the microwave. put them into your low-fat milk and spin them in. that way you're not using that really high-fat syrup we all buy from the store. then if you don't like dark chocolate chips you can go ahead and get cocoa powder. it's sold at every store in the baking section and that will be a lot lower in calories. >> we end up with dessert. pumkind pie. >> this is pumparfait, it's a -- pumpkin parfait.
9:20 am
it's a swap for pumpkin pie. this is in a can from the store. you can add in yogurt or vanilla pudding mix and crumble graham crackers on top. >> it's good? >> really good. >> how many calories are we saving? >> hundreds and hundreds of calories. on this alone you're going to save about 200 calories a dish. for this you'll save about 100. for the pumpkin pie you'll save around 200 or 300 calories. >> all right. >> this beer is just unbelievable. is there anything in it? no, there is something in it. all right. melissa, you're great. >> thank you. >> thank you so much. >> megan, what do you think of this very lite beer? >> you strike me as a lite beer loving kind of guy. if you're a golf fan, even if you're not you might want to head to timonium this weekend. that is because some of the biggest golf tournaments in the country once again in our backyard. we find out why it's worth going to see the golf greats.
9:21 am
when we come back. but first we want to remind you, if you have a business, charity, any kind of organization and you want to get a free plug on the air, send your mug to cup of joe, 6400 york road, baltimore, maryland, 21212. just provide a little background information so we can let everyone else know about it. it's our "cup of joe" segment. we'll be right back.

9:26 am
the ropes and watch them play. >> you just mentioned fuzzy zellar. he's a character. and craig statler is comical but all the guys will tell jokes. you name it and follow them, most of them will all tell jokes. fred funk, he's a little dry at times but is still funny, has a good time and tells jokes. >> you'll be out there all afternoon? >> all weekend. it's the last major, fred funk's in the running for the charles schwab cup. we're rooting for him to win and win it all. >> why should everyone come out to timonium and watch this? >> number one, it's baltimore country club. the place is like heaven. it's one of the nicest stops for the champions tour. they think it's the best golf course on the entire tour. plus, you want to see them play. you saw them on tv years ago. you can get up close and watch them. you can talk to them when they are done. >> we're worried about it leaving. >> the economy is tough, you

welcome back to "good morning maryland" at 9:00. these days there's no doubt about it, there's a shortage of pharmacists nationally and locally. the college of notre-dame in maryland opened up the school of pharmacy. it happened this year and it's to help communities in need. abc2 news sherrie johnson headed out to the college to meet some of the inaugural class. take a look. >> reporter: college of notre-dame of maryland has been around since 1895. it sits on 58 acres providing students with the liberal arts education. but these days there's something new at the school. a school of pharmacy. >> what we want to be able to do is take that knowledge they learn and apply quality care to all the patients that are out there. particularly those patients in the underserved communities. >> reporter: last week college of notre-dame of maryland school of pharmacy welcomed its first class. administrators received nearly 500 applications but only 70
9:32 am
students were admitted to the four-year doctorate program. 29-year-old patrick donahue is looking forward to being a part of something so new. >> stimulating for me because i would be part of a new, something, brand new thing that is going to be good. and i would be the -- leadership is one of the qualities i think is important. it's going to come out of this whole program. and being the first class is, like, you know, kind of being the leader. and its in own way. >> reporter: administrators at college of notre-dame say this new pharmacy school helps meet the needs of the communities. with more and more pharmacists needed on a national and state level local pharmacists are happy to see a new school emerge to welcome even more pharmacists into the profession. >> there's so many things that pharmacists are doing now. we're trying to get more into health care, providing different services, diabetes management, and more. there's the need for more pharmacists to follow the needs of the community.
9:33 am
>> reporter: with the right education these students are well on their way to becoming top-notch pharmacists. sherrie johnson, abc2 news. >> the college of notre-dame school of pharmacy will be fully accredited in 2013 after the first class of graduates. and dr. valerie hogue from the school of pharmacy is here to tell us about it. thank you so much for coming in. >> thank you. >> it must be exciting. how's it going? >> it's going very well. we're fulfilling a pioneering tradition of a college of notre-dame of maryland. the college of notre-dame is really a college of firsts. it was the first school of pharmacy at a women's college in the united states. so we are on the cutting edge of providing not only good quality health care for our state but also for the nation. we're very excited about the inaugural class of 70 students. >> i thought it was interesting, you mentioned it was the first for women. this is actually a great field for women, what i've read but
9:34 am
why is that? >> it's a wonderful field for women. i can say that, having been a pharmacist for over 20 years now, providing not only education to patients but to students. the field actually, we're graduating at least 65% of our graduates nationwide are women. the field offers many, many areas in whiff women -- which women can work, not oath full time but part time and balance their family life. you find farms siforts in the community, pharmacists in communities, hmos, federal agencies, there are so many avenues. it gives women plenty of opportunities. >> it's great. you hear this is a hot field right now. it's also a field where there are no -- people are having trouble finding pharmacists. is that why it's a hot field? or are people just becoming more interested in it? ? i think it's a little of both. there's definitely a need. both statewide and nationally.
9:35 am
it's anticipated by some estimates that over 150,000 new pharmacists will be needed by 2020. and there still are, both within the state and nationally, many place that's can't fill their open pharmacist positions. they are having some difficulty with that. we at the college of notre-dame in maryland are trying to ease that burden a little bit. >> are you getting applications? >> we've gotten many applications since we started the new class. our name is now out there, thanks to folks at abc2. we are actually getting a lot of applications at this point. it's a lot different from last year when we had first started. >> good. what if somebody sees this and thinks, it's something i could be interested in? how would you advise them to go about, maybe pursuing a career in pharmacy or at least looking into it? >> a lot of the things you need to do is basically what you
9:36 am
would do in any -- pursuing any professional career but for pharmacy we would also encourage you to get to know what a pharmacist does. do some research about the profession. invest some time in understanding the kinds of things that we do. we are the medication experts. and we not only ensure delivery of medications but ensure appropriate medication use. having students to learn more about what they are about to enter is very important. also, you've got to look at the course work. at least 72 hours of course work, semester course work is needed. in order to apply. and that includes some of the basic sciences and some of the general education requirements. but if anyone is ever interested in knowing what they need to know for our school they can certainly look on our web site at www.ndm.edu. >>
9:37 am
the number is on the web site. congratulations with all of that. thank you so much for coming in. >> thank you for having me. have you ever had the feeling of deja vu? have you ever had the feeling of deja vu? most people have. but have you seen your future? coming up next, we're going to sit down with one of the stars of the new abc hit show "flash forward" and try to figure out how everybody in the world blacked out at the same time and then had this vision of the future. 9:37. we have a vision of sparrows point high school, 54 degrees. 4 is what it feels like 54 is what it feels like. 54, 54. let's look outside now from harbor cam. blue sky dominates baltimore, chilly breeze, clouds lingering to the north and west. we'll talk about warmer temperatures on the way after today. we'll be right back. excuse me, mary?

9:42 am

your dog from scratching and having irritated skin too much, do some shampoos. you can pick up a nice oatmeal shampoo at the pet store. if you use it one once a week, lather up the dog, rinse him off, lather him up again, let it soak for about 10 minutes. rinse it off. it will help coat that skin a little and help take some of the itch out. you can also be careful with your foods because a lot of animals have food allergies. use a proper food. and stay on one food. don't vary food a lot because that will help increase allergy problems. but if your dog is having a lot of allergy problems you really need to see your veterinarian, get them on some antihistamines. unfortunately, most of the over the counter human antihistamines don't work well in animals so you need a veterinary antihistamine. you go get them on that dosage and keep them on it most of the summer and fall you'll have less allergies. >> julie, are you on the phone? >> yes. >> you have a k-9 dog?
