On April 1, Elise Miller, director of the Collaborative for Health and the Environment (CHE) stepped down, and we welcomed Karen Wang as CHE’s new director. We aren’t saying goodbye to Elise—she will be part of the Commonweal community for as long we are all on this earth. And we are deeply delighted to welcome Karen Wang who will guide CHE in our next phase of work.
Commonweal’s Collaborative on Health and the Environment launched its new, easy-to-navigate website this week. The site makes it easy to find science-based, up-to-date research and resources on toxics in the environment, and to join their more than 5,000 partners around the world working on a systems approach to health.
In September, we marked our 40th anniversary with a gathering of Commonweal family and friends. The recording presented here offers Reflections on Forty Years of Service from Commonweal Founder Michael Lerner, Chief Strategies Officer Oren Slozberg, and Cancer Help Program Medical Director Rachel Naomi Remen, MD.
