Having Caring Conversations

April 27, 2017 Vol.15, Issue 4 It wasn’t my everyday speaker inquiry — Nicky Upson, Communication Specialist at Providence Health and Services, SW Washington, was asking for a speaker on Advance Directives for an event celebrating National Healthcare Decisions Day.

Kindness as a Practice

Nov. 17, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 9 In light of recent campaign rhetoric, and election unrest, I think we can all agree that a little (or a lot!) of kindness is in order, so today I’m featuring an Oregon speaker whom I met recently. Linda M. Cohen is the author of 1,000 Mitzvahs — How Small… read more

Melanie Carvell: Making Wellness Fit

July 14, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 6 “Oh boy, we’re going to exercise!” No kidding: that’s what I heard a little boy — about 4 years old — say enthusiastically to his pal and to the adult who was holding both their hands. Bella and I, out for our daily dog walk, were headed toward the… read more
