Deirdre_approved_new_photo_11-6_FinalDear Friends,

This spring, we honor all of you, our supporters, for helping us achieve eight awards for our healthcare sustainability program. We’re thankful for all of the partnerships that make these achievements a reality and help move our mission forward.

This issue, we celebrate the Central Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CABVI) for their work transforming lives. We hope the story of CABVI employee Amos Ackerman will inspire you to follow your own dreams and see things in a new light!

We’re excited to report on new innovations in complementary alternative health, which our Medical Advisor, Ben Kligler, MD details in this issue. As we continue to build upon our children’s environmental health mission, we’re forming new partnerships in research and education that will be detailed in future issues. Stay tuned!

My best,

Deirdre Imus
