Not Just A Walk in the Park… All Lives Matter – By Hal Eisenberg, CEO

As I read this article (below) I thought about that day in the park. She was sitting there and on the surface she looked as if she was staring out at the universe blindly.

That day in [...]

What Is Wrong With Our Medical Profession? By Hal Eisenberg, CEO

I was asked to write a reaction as a professional social worker who has worked with many youth and adults who are struggling with an Eating Disorder to the following quote in the article linked below. The original article is posted under my reaction.

Once Upon A Time… I Used to Write Blogs…

I used to write these weekly blogs back in the MySpace days… I used to want to take whatever I was going through, what youth were dealing with, along with my observations of life and society, and just try to intellectually express it.
