Nutrition for Individual & Environmental Health
The virtual world offers a new genre of interacting with people and with media. Publications are available in a variety of text, audio, video and interactive formats. Guided courses by top university professors and business professionals are available for free or low cost. Services and information is at our fingertips from around the world. Preventative health education has been my main career focus however the easy access to information and interaction with interesting people has led me to a greater awareness of the beauty and wonders, and dangers and concerns of our world.
I share information from my public health perspective - free information may be useful to someone, some time, and they may share it with others - pass it forward - with love.
Preventative Health Services
Video conferencing, live chats or webinars, and other services available within the virtual world make education, entertainment, or teamwork possible for groups around the world in a more sustainable way. Save everyone from spending time and energy traveling to live events that can be attended anywhere that has an internet connection. Live group events could be coordinated at local meeting places to provide some physical interaction too.
Keeping busy mentally and socially may help preserve long term cognitive health.
Online groups can be positive support systems.
Sense of Purpose
“Sea-level rise and flooding is one thing, people get wet, immigrate, and create huge problems. Loss of biodiversity means the human species as a whole is threatened to disappear. No joke. This is not discussed enough in the media.”– Eric Rignot @erignot
