13 June 2016 — Public Health


By Club consensus during a 10 January 2016 planning session, the “poll” at the bottom of the Program page has been removed. Members are asked to post a comment each week. If you don’t have something interesting to say–although with our members we know what you have to say is interesting–feel free to say “Present” or “Here” or “Yaba Daba Doo” or write your favorite color, just let us know you were here.


SUNDAY, JUNE 26 — 12:30pm to 2:00pmOur FOURTH SUNDAY meeting for June! Speaker: Tommy Gelinas, founder and curator of Valley Relics Museum.  We gather in The Fireplace Room at Denny’s, 5525 Sepulveda Boulevard in Sherman Oaks. (Meeting reminders: Inspiration, Jorge; Pledge, Judy; Four-Way Test, Brenda; Rotary Minute, Linda C.)  BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING that morning at 11:00.


We have launched our Clunkers4Charity fundraiser! If you know of anyone (yourself included) who wants or needs to donate a car for tax purposes, send them to our website…and to the Clunkers4Charity “Link” you see at the right side of this page. Funds we raise will go right into the community for our projects.










Whether it is about eradicating polio, Rotary International’s long-running campaign, or anything from malaria to AIDS to the zika virus, public health is important to the community and often important as a focus of the Rotary Clubs serving the community.Here is an interesting take on how to approach the general issues, and how we might all be better positioned to create positive change.

  1. Wow! Very informative and hopeful.

  2. Thanks for sharing this program.

  3. Great presentation. Precision public health can bring hope for a better life for so many people.

  4. I went to watch the video, but TED indicated it was not available. Too bad. I would like to have seen it. Yesterday, I was away at appointments until late, and couldn’t view it. I was planning to do so today.

    • Linda–from Mel–sorry I didn’t see this sooner–there shouldn’t be an issue with the video, it’s playing fine embedded right here on the page and with the link to the TED site. It’s worth it if you have a chance to try again…

  5. It’s exciting to hear about a new approach that has so much promise.

  6. Linda’s right. There is a problem viewing the video. :(

    • I’m baffled…Mel posting…I can watch it here embedded or on the site. Sorry about this, I went in to double-check the link and it’s correct as far as the page and this page can tell…

  7. The precision public health approach is hopeful. Bringing scientists and public health professionals together to tackle huge problems across the globe means better chances for so many.

  8. Very helpful. Thank you.

  9. Technology meets healthcare = A brighter future for all:)
