Soul Body Thrive Workshops
Not long ago, the Baltimore Fire Department was so cash-strapped that they considered selling ad space on the sides of their fire trucks. Clearly, there was no extra money in the budget for fancy gym equipment–even though staying in shape is a crucial part of a firefighter’s job. Luckily, some of our favorite local do-gooders decided to adopt this problem as their own, resulting in new, state-of-the-art gym equipment in the city’s three busiest fire houses.

Buying healthy and sustainable seafood locally is fishy business. Two factors have collided in recent years that have made choosing fish and shellfish complicated; we’ve eaten too many fish, and the fish that are left swim in polluted ocean waters.
But no fear, we won’t leave you hanging on the line because right here in Baltimore lives Dave Love, a renowned scientist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. With Love’s help, we’ll point out the good fishing holes and offer direction on how to choose sustainable and healthy seafood. Hopefully smart seafood picks today will ensure future generations will have access to healthy and plentiful seafood tomorrow.
Public Reading of Medic Against Bomb
A Doctor’s Poetry of War
Institute Scholar Fred Foote, MD, will deliver a multimedia reading from his newly published book of poetry, Medic Against Bomb. The work was inspired by his encounters with Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as well as his time as a military physician aboard the U.S. Navy Hospital Ship COMFORT during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Winner of the 2013 Grayson Books Poetry prize, Medic Against Bomb also describes the inspiring service of our nation’s military medics and the healing efforts of personnel at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
With readings planned across Maryland, Dr. Foote intends for Medic Against Bomb to familiarize the public with the experiences and needs of Wounded Warriors. Through discussion following each reading, he aims to stimulate the creation of local initiatives that employ the arts and nature to reintegrate and heal Warriors and Veterans.
This weekend, health officials announced that a nurse who had been treating the Dallas Ebola patient had tested positive for the disease; meanwhile, nearly 4,000 people in West Africa have died after contracting the disease– and health officials think that’s probably a significant underestimation.
