  • Community: Medicine for the Soul October 1, 2014 Community building is one of the goals of Commonweal’s Institute for the Study of Health and Illness (ISHI) programs. When we ask people what they learned in our trainings, one of the most frequent responses is, “I no longer feel I am alone.”
  • Translating Science to the Plate at Stanford September 4, 2014 The Commonweal Healing Kitchens Institute recently completed the second phase of Harnessing the Power of Food, a series of seminars at Stanford University Hospital that is part of Stanford’s Food and Health Initiative.
  • Depressed? Maybe It’s in the Air August 20, 2014 Commonweal’s Collaborative on Health and the Environment recently hosted a call on air pollution and asthma. But more recently studies have found links to cardiovascular disease, diabetes/obesity, cognitive function, and mental illness.
