UCI is Opening a Window for Those of Us in Need of a Breath of Artistic Fresh Air

At UCI’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA), modern dance is alive and well, with a twist this year!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, UCI's New Slate Online dance concert series will stream via YouTube on December 10th through December 12th at 8pm. This free event will feature both live and virtual dances. The performance will be followed with live artist-audience conversations about these new ways of dance making. Albeit, a YouTube window, it’s still a breath of artistic fresh air.

COVID-19 — Wrong from the start! Now, let’s get it right!

My entire professional life in public health and as a pediatrician has been dedicated to the prevention of disease wherever possible, and to delivering appropriate medical interventions whenever necessary. For me, diagnosing and treating an individual patient for a disease is very rewarding.

But, even more rewarding for me — and the real payoff for society — is when we institute policies and organize our resources to prevent the spread of disease.

Ed McNew Shows Us All That Volunteering = Purpose in Life = Better Health

In December 2019, I reported that Volunteering = Better Health…at any age. A volunteer I highlighted, Ed McNew is now 88 years old. He was, by far, the top signature gatherer for the Veterans Memorial Park & Cemetery Initiative Petition.  He said, at the time, “It gives me purpose, and it’s something I look forward to every day.” 

How is Ed doing with the petition campaign over?   Well, Ed is now on the Build the Great Park Veterans Cemetery steering committee that meets via Zoom weekly, and that keeps him occupied.

Honoring Our Veterans and Their Families

Building a beautiful Veterans Memorial Park & Cemetery on the ARDA site at the Great Park will not only serve to honor our veterans, but will also honor veterans' families who have repeatedly expressed their desire to have their loved ones buried close to home.

Irvine Community News & Views will be watching the new Council to see if they are willing to work together to finally deliver on the City's promise to our veterans and veterans' families.
