Women and Heart Disease -What is the Risk?

Talks/Lectures

Faith Formation Speakers Series: Women and Heart Disease - What is the Risk? with Pam Kozu RN, MN Manager Prevention and Outreach Pulse Heart Institute. Heart disease is a serious problem in the United States. It’s the leading cause of death for both men and women, with around 610,000 deaths each year. What’s more, every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack. Some risk factors for heart disease, such as age, gender and family history, are beyond your control. But, fortunately, many risk factors — like diet, smoking and exercise — are things that you can change to reduce your risk and protect your heart. Join us to increase awareness of the dangers of heart disease specifically in women, learn how to make healthy lifestyle choices and how you can modify risk factors to improve your own cardiac health. Learn more by visiting the Pulse Heart Institute.

Cavorting in Caves Familiar and Unfamiliar

Poetry Reading/Spoken Word

Faith Formation Speakers Series: Cavorting in Caves Familiar and Unfamiliar with Georgia S. McDade, Ph.D, Author/Poet/Historian, African American Writers Alliance - Georgia S. McDade, Ph.D., shares poems from her four books of poetry: Outside the Cave I, II, III, and IV. Family, friends, foes, nature, relationships, aging, reconciliation, losses, observations, successes, failures, perspectives, race, love, disappointment, beginnings, endings, history, politics, religion—all are among the many subjects she covers and sometimes re-covers. McDade’s favorite description of her work comes from an excellent student and great friend: “But you’re not just a great teacher of literature—you teach sociology, anthropology, history, economics, political science, psychology, journalism, religion! And politics: I never thought of everything being political until I took your class.”

Zero Waste, Plastics and More

Talks/Lectures

Faith Formation Speakers Series: Zero Waste, Plastics and More, with Heather Trim, Executive Director, Zero Waste Washington - Plastics are everywhere and their impacts and management are a growing concern around the Pacific NW and globally. Please join Zero Waste Washington for a conversation highlighting current knowledge of plastics, from microplastics in marine waters to plastics recycling challenges. Last year 300 million tons of new plastic were produced globally, and 1/3 of this was used in plastic packaging, including bags, bottles, containers and wrappers. Even in Washington State where we have strong waste reduction goals, only 15% of plastic waste is recycled. What happens to the rest of it? In this presentation, you will find out about plastic waste and what is being done to reduce plastic pollution in our region.
