Hope and Challenge in Global Health with Elynn Kann – 3-29-14

March 28, 2014

Last week we began a series of discussions focusing on world issues, presenting both the challenging aspects of those issues as well as some of the actions being taken that give us reason to have hope and a feeling of progress.  This week, we get an update on health issues around the world, particularly for women and children.  An early Mind Body Spirit Living guest returns to share her thoughts on this important topic.

ElynninUgandaElynn Kann is a Senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who will graduate with a degree in Sociology and a Certificate in Global Health.  Early on, Elynn felt called to help underserved populations, doing mission work for the Appalachia Service Project.  While in college, she spent time volunteering at an orphanage in Thailand, and spent a semester studying healthcare for the poor in India, Argentina and South Africa.  This winter, Elynn traveled to Uganda looking at health conditions in Africa. She just returned from a week in New York City at the United Nations 2014 UN Practicum in Advocacy, attending the Commission on the Status of Women.  She was one of just 20 students from around the country invited to attend.

Elynn also works at the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, assisting with coordination and planning of speaker events and conferences.

Corporate Responsibility with Beth Doane – 3-22-14

March 26, 2014

This week we begin an exploration of the balance and imbalance in world issues, focusing on health education and the environment .  It is easy to get overwhelmed and confused with the pages and pages of information available on these topics, but we’ll get some insight and focus from our guests who are living and working on the challenge of these issues every day.  We are glad to have them come to Mind Body Spirit Living to give us an update and share hope on progress being made.

BethDoaneFew companies have an environmental focus so integrated in their culture as Raintees and we honored to have Founder Beth Doane as a part of our discussion.  Beth was running a fashion company when she first saw the human rights and environmental pollution occurring in the industry and had a vision that fashion could be made ethically while making a difference.  Her company, Raintees, launched in Los Angeles at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in 2008 and has grown into a global tribe of people dedicated to giving back.  The line of t-shirts, tote bags and other products uses a combination of children’s drawings as designs and organic cotton to create a unique offering of merchandise.

Raintees serves its mission by planting a tree for every Raintee sold and donating a year of school supplies to a child in need for every totebag sold. Through this mission, Raintree has impacted thousands of lives.  The products are sold internationally, thousands of trees have been planted in critically endangered areas, and sales have helped send children to school in 28 countries.

Beth Doane’s remarkable journey from fashion runways to saving rainforests has captivated audiences at TEDx, the United Nations, Google, and the National Mall in Washington, D.C. where she has spoken about the power of giving back and creating social change. Beth has also been featured in National Geographic, Glamour, InStyle and other top tier publications. We are honored to have her join us on Mind Body Spirit Living radio.

March 18, 2014

For many people, integrating their spiritual and business lives is not as seamless as they would like it to be.  People have often asked Host Chris Kann how to do this gracefully, and we’ve featured interviews with business owners Tom Buhler and Dimple Navratil to get their perspective.  Because this is a multi-faceted question, we will add to this discussion this week in an interview with our guest, Brian Langendorf.
