Happy 2015!

We hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season and is ready for a healthy and productive year in 2015!


Let’s get caught up on what some of our speakers have been up to:


On December 17, 2014, New York  Gov. Andrew Cuomo banned the practice of high-volume hydraulic fracturing (of shale formations) in New York State. Congratulations to Dr. Sandra Steingraber and all others whose hard work helped lead to this important decision.


Founder of Microsoft and noted philanthropist, Bill Gates, recommends Sonia Shah’s book  The Fever, saying:  “If you want to read just one book about malaria, The Fever is probably the best choice…it’s a great overview of malaria, its impact, and the solutions to it.”


Head over to the NYT for  Stephanie Coontz’ latest editorial “The New Deal and Civil Rights Helped Make the Dream More Attainable”.
