EPISODE 1: PASTOR GARY L. WYATT, Pastor of SureHouse, the baddest Church in Tacoma, WA, was in the Studio for the INAUGURAL Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show sharing his Journey of Discovery and Good Health in making Organic Good Food Choices.

Heeerrre's Pastor Gary L. Wyatt!

DLW: I introduced Pastor Wyatt to Organic Good Foods, and after a series of TASTY Gifts of Good Health, and GOOD Stories to go along with them, he knew his change was coming, so he wrote this song for us, ’Til My Change Comes.  It tells of HOPE, HEALTH and A GOOD LIFE AHEAD. In fact, you filmed it LIVE with the Jackson Sistas and the SureHouse Band for the final track on your “Impeccable Worship” DVD, too.

I took Pastor Wyatt and Mother Cheryl on a Personally Guided Organic Good Food Shopping Tour @ Marlene’s Market & Deli.

For their 30-Day Review and Graduation I took Pastor Wyatt and Mother Cheryl to an ALL Organic Good Food Dinner @ a Restaurant in Seattle.  Well, the NEXT DAY, Saturday morning, Pastor Wyatt sent me an e-mail … “Stand by your laptop, I’m sending you a NEW SONG!”  He sent me GO-O and THAT O means ORGANIC!”

You had invited me as your Guest on your TBN TV Show a couple years ago and I think you & I DOUBLED the Prayer CALL-INS … a Pastor and a Good Food Guide goin’ on down the road together, SAVING & NOURISHING the SPIRITUAL SOUL, SAVING & NOURSING the PHYSICAL BODY.  Nice combo!

http://www.garylwyattministries.org/

EPISODE 2: It was just the Audience and their Good Food Guide, ME!  I talked about WHY is it so important to know HOW to live the Organic Good Food Life.

DLW: It’s FUN.  It’s EASY.  It’s SIMPLE.  AND IT IS DELICIOUS to move towards the Organic Good Food Life with the simple system of REPLACEMENT & SUBSTITUTION … just each and every time you go to the store, simply make an Organic Good Food Choice in lieu of the non-organic poor food choice you may have ordinarily made: milk for milk  … chips for chips, apples for apples … organic ketchup for non-organic …  mustard, pickles, pepper, pizza, bananas and chocolate bars. And if you do that, over time you’ll end up with a pantry, refrigerator and Home full of good health.  It’s soooo EASY!

And I’ll tell you what… I’ve never felt better in my life.  I feel the way I was designed to feel, the way I was meant to feel.  Very few people ever feel the way they were designed to feel… the way they should feel … every day.  And I’ll tell you, once you know how you were designed to feel, how you should feel, how good you can feel, you’ll do anything and everything to preserve, defend and protect that genuine sense of well-being.  It is absolutely wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!

There ain’t nothin’ like it!  It’s to CELEBRATE!  You’ll want to SHOUT … I feeeeel good like I knew that I could …  I feel nice, like sugar and spice!  I’ve got more energy, more spirit than any 5 year old that you’ve seen jumpin’ straight up and down with unbridled excitement!

You DO feel THAT GOOD!  It’s LIFE worth LIVING!

Well … change your food, change your life and get up there with us.  We’ll tell you how, we’ll get you started on livin’ the Organic Good Food Life.

EPISODE 3: THE DIRT DOCTOR, John Porterfield, MontanaGrow™

DLW: OUR FUN GUEST, John Porterfield, President, MontanaGrow™ is calling in from downtown BONNER, Montana, along the shores of the beautiful Blackfoot River.  He’s not JUST President, he’s Mr. MONTANA aka Johnny Montana aka THE DIRT DOCTOR.  And my Good Food Friend, John, is no shrinking violet ‘scientist’!  He was tagged as Mr. MONTANA by Frankie B, front man for the funk/soul/blues Band SEPTIMUS, The ‘Official’ Band of Change Your Food – Change Your Life!, that we featured @ ORGANICOLOGY in Portland.  Mr. Montana cut a wide swath on the dance floor and had his O’s UP until the bar closed!  You even won yourself a t-shirt or two.  And that CROFTER’S® ORGANIC T-Shirt has served you well, would make anyone say they LOVE ORGANIC GOOD FOODS, too!  Something like a match .com thing!

John recently spoke before the Montana Organic Association.  Well, John was SUCH A HIT at the Montana Organic Association with his storytelling, and his unique Amorphous Silicon

is such a demonstrated benefit to Organic Crop Health, Nutrient Uptake and Yields, that he was VOTED onto the Montana Organic Association’s Board by its 247 FARMERS, Electing a VENDOR to their Board for the FIRST TIME!

And TRUST ME, if you’re explaining Amorphous Silicon, you gotta be a GREAT STORYTELLER!

‘Course, RESULTS don’t hurt, either!

And, hey, John, isn’t MontanaGrow™ kinda like the little blue pill for plants?  How does it make ‘em stand up?

1a Ellen Kanner CHEF

You World traveler, YOU … I went to Disney World once … can you tell the story about the rice in your Sahara recipe that you helped cook with a non-English speaking woman in Morocco, and as you said, “Who needs a common language when you have Organic Good FOOD!”

I’m guessing there are many vegetarian and vegan listeners to the Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show.  And since they’ll hear from a no better EXPERT than YOU, your having WON the “VegNews” BOOK OF THE YEAR, can you offer them some HELPFUL, HEALTHY  TIPS?

WHERE can our Audience get your Book Titled, “FEEDING the HUNGRY GHOST – LIFE, FAITH and WHAT TO EAT FOR DINNER” and HOW, Ellen, can they SUBSCRIBE to your Newsletter that always has POSITIVE, UPLIFTING Stories & GOOD THOUGHTS and RECIPES and DELICIOUS PHOTOGRAPY of YOUR RECIPES?  Even the Titles are FUN.  I think the last one was titled “HAPPY APRIL”!  ‘Course, what else could YOUR OUTLOOK BE from someone livin’ the Organic Good Food LIFE!  As I said in my opening to The Show, Change Your Food – Change Your Life is designed to put smiles on faces … AND Organic Good Food DOES!  So, now back to my original question, HOW can they subscribe to your Newsletter?

EPISODE 5: I’ve told the Story of Mary & Tonia, when a BEAN is NOT A BEAN, don’t ever trust those devil bakers, why you can’t trust THE QUAKER, why you should always buy TWO PACKS of non-organic tortillas and I  PROVED it costs less to live the Organic Good Food Life than not.  We exposed some LABEL LIES and had a HILARIOUSLY FUNNY non-organic label reading by our Producer, D-Money, HIMSELF.  We POSTED that one!  GUESS AT IT!!!

EPISODE 6 & 10: My VERY FAVE FARMGIRL, IRIS MONTAÑO-MADRIGAL of Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS has called in TWICE from Nogales, Arizona!

IMG_0050cw

DLW: The last time you were on The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show, I had asked you to talk about Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS’ Growing Quality by Tradition.  For those NEW in our Audience, and even for those that may have heard you, would you please tell of the Quality aspect of it … the CARE & COMMITMENT Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS takes to GROW, PACKAGE and BRING WHOLESOME, HEALTHY Organic Good Food Fruits & Vegetables to us, the EATERS … Organic Good Food doesn’t JUST HAPPEN, nor should it EVER be taken for granted!

One listener I heard from was struck by your description of the ENTIRE Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS’ process of preparing the soil, raising the seed, planting your little babies, and packaging, which you described as carefully PLACING each Organic Good Fruit or Vegetable in a carton for shipping, not tossing into a box which packaging generally means.

The Founder of RainierAvenueRadio.World, Tony Benton, Tony B, Founded the RainierAvenueRadio.World Station to involve Community, to support Community, knowing that a Community together, can empower and lift one another up.  Well, IRIS, Tony B is going to LOVE the ‘good works’ of Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS … your FAIR TRADE commitment to directly support your workers and their Communities.

Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS is the FIRST COMPANY TO BE 100% ORGANIC & 100% FAIR TRADE.  FAIR TRADE – You say EVERY PURCHASE MATTERS.  Explain.

Lots of Companies say they care for their workers.  But through Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS’ FAIR TRADE COMMITMENT, farm workers are able to take ownership of their future by being able to choose, as a Community, how and when to invest the FAIR TRADE premium to lift up their lives and those of future generations.

What are the Projects Covilli® BRAND ORGANICS FAIR TRADE supports?

EPISODE 7: Award-Winning Children’s Book Author, KATHERINE PRYOR, told STORIES about THE STORIES she wrote.

DLW: So, now, here’s my GOOD Food Friend, Award-Winning Children’s Book Author, KATHERINE PRYOR, who I describe as a walking CELEBRATION of LIFE!  If you go to the dictionary or google ‘cheery’, you’ll see a little pen and ink sketch of my GOOD Food Friend, KATHERINE!

1a2safe_image

 In 2012, I met Katherine at a Fundraising Dinner for The Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network.  As the evening’s speaker, Katherine was introduced as quite the FOOD ACTIVIST.  She told this FUN Story about WHY she became a Children’s Book Author while coming back home from an Olympia Lobbying event.  And so, your FIRST Children’s Book was born, “Sylvia’s Spinach”.  Tell THAT Story.

I have a quick FUN, TRUE Story about the EFFECT of “Sylvia’s Spinach”.  At your book signing, I asked you to autograph it to a little 6-year old girl, Katya.  The next day I gave it to her MOM and they read it together that evening.  Well, the next evening, her DAD, who had no idea there was A BOOK was about spinach, just happened to choose a spinach salad for dinner.  Katya’s eyes grew big when she saw his salad and put down her pizza to eat the spinach salad!

You’ve also written “Zora’s Zucchini” and are working on a third titled “Bea’s Bees”.  So, you’ll have Books, B, S & Z.  When do you think you’ll be COMPLETING the next 23 so Children can learn their ALPHABET from your Book TITLES?

I’ve seen YOU in action in your school reading program  … AMAAAZING … KEEPING & HOLDING the ATTENTION of normally squirmy little children.  How can MOMS make arrangements for you to come to their School with your BOOKS and your little red wagon full of spinach?

Children surrounding Author Katherine Pryor and learning about ''Slyvia's Spinach'cw'

Your BOOKS are so popular that “Sylvia’s Spinach” and Zora’s Zucchini” are in hardcover, paperback AND AUDIO?  Where can they get your BOOKS?

EPISODE 8: ‘The Good Doctor’ Dr. HERB JOINER-BEY ND made a HOUSE CALL in the Studio.

1a The Good Doctor w AMP cr

DLW: The Good Doctor, HERB JOINER-BEY, ND, is Author of “The Healing Power of Flax – The Definitive Guide”

1a FLAX 2

and Co-author of “The Omega-3 Miracle”, “Water: The Foundation of Youth, Health, and Beauty”, “The Face of Consciousness: A Guide to Self-identity and Healing” and with Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Founder of Bastyr University, and Michael Murray, ND, IT’S THE BIGGIE: “The Clinician’s Handbook of Natural Medicine”, 1st, 2nd & 3rd Editions!  It’s that Profession’s Guide Book … its TEXT BOOK.  He is the WORD!

1a Clincian's Guide 3

‘The Good Doctor’ DR HERB JOINER-BEY, ND, is a Scientist & an Educator.  He’s traveled the Country and the UK Speaking on the WHOLESOME, HEALTHFUL benefits of Organic Good Foods.  Seminars galore.  WON the NATURAL HEALTH EDUCATOR PIONEER AWARD at a recent Natural Products Association Conference.  Been on TV and so many Radio Stations that even HE couldn’t tell you how many.

Well, THE DOCTOR IS NOW IN THE HOUSE!  WELCOME, DR HERB JOINER-BEY to The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show on RainierAvenueRadio.World!

Let’s talk about Type 2 Diabetes.  But first, I’ve got to tell this little Story.  Change Your Food – Change You Life! was the HEADLINER for an American Diabetes Association EXPO @ Quest Field.  We were SURROUNDED by Hospitals, Insurance Companies and, OF COURSE, Drug Companies, which seemed to be THE SOLUTION.  But, since most people ‘catch’ Type 2 Diabetes by making lousy, non-organic poor food choices and can eat their way out of Type 2 by making Organic GOOD FOOD Choices … well my Friend, ‘The Good Doctor’ Dr, HERB JOINER-BEY, couldn’t help himself.  Now remember, we were surrounded by Drug Companies.  So, ON STAGE to introduce The Change Your Food – Change You Life! Show, ‘The Good Doctor’ says to the Audience, “You know, just like those Drug Companies all around us, Organic Good Foods have side effects, too.”  Everyone kinda moved up on the front of their chairs and he says, “But our SIDE EFFECTS are a BOUNCE IN YOUR STEP AND A SMILE ON YOUR FACE!”  We were never invited back, but at least he got THAT off his chest!

So, now about Type 2 Diabetes.  How can Organic Good Foods modulate the effects of Type 2 Diabetes … even help a person to put Type 2 behind ‘em

Well, DOCTOR HERB JOINER-BEY, THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your day with us.  I can’t thank you enough for making all of our aches and pains go awayand no Co-Pay REQUIRED!!  WHAT A DEAL!

Your family didn’t start out as salt miners.  I love that Story of how your Grandfather came upon your SALT.

All the rage now is sea salt, but if you think about it, whatever pollution is in the air, is in the water, is in the outdoors SEA salt, but REDMOND RealSalt® is pure as the driven snow because …

Explain why WHOLESOME, HEALTHY REDMOND RealSalt® – AMERICA’S ONLY UNREFINED ANCIENT SEA SALT – is REAL SALT.

1a RSS RARcw

Ordinary TABLE SALT has had what DONE to it …and includes what UNEXPECTED adulterations?

EPISODE 11: MICHELLE ZERBIB, MSN, CN, Masters of Nutrition Science and DIRECTOR of STANDARDS for NEW HOPE NETWORK, Producer of the World’s LARGEST Organic and Natural Trade Shows and Conferences called in from Boulder, Colorado.

25

DLW: MICHELLE ZERBIB, MSN, CN, and I met way back in 2002.  I was introducing my Company, Change Your Food – Change Your Life!, to the Hartman Group, a Good Food/Trends Research and Consulting Company.  I mentioned that Change Your Food – Change Your Life! was doing Personally Guided Organic Good Food Shopping Tours in Grocery Stores. Michelle was the Director of Wellness for the Hartman Group and was just finishing up her Master’s Thesis @ Bastyr University, making the case for Nutritionists being IN Grocery Stores, being proactive GOOD FOOD GUIDES for GOOD HEALTH rather than having to be reactive in a Clinic/Hospital setting trying to help people RECOVER their health from having made lousy poor food choices.  I was doing what she was writing about and she was writing about what I was doing … so we’ve been GOOD FOOD FRIENDS ever since.

Then she moved to Boulder, Colorado, and made herself famous @ NEW HOPE NETWORK!

1a NewHOPE

And I might say how prescient MICHELLE was, as there is NOW a growing movement to place Dietitians and Nutritionists IN Grocery Stores!

So, NOW, here’s my VERY GOOD, GOOD FOOD Friend MICHELLE ZERBEB! Welcome, MICHELLE, to The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show on RaininerAvenueRadio.World.

As DIRECTOR OF STANDARDS for the whole shootin’ match @ NEW HOPE NETWORK, WHAT DO YOU REVIEW?  I know our Audience will find it fascinating … the care and attention, the thoroughness of your Department … to make sure no one is stretchin’ the truth, making claims they shouldn’t be and to insure that Consumers aren’t buying a lie!  So, what do you review?

Every year before ExpoWEST, MICHELLE & I have coffee on the patio of the Anaheim Sheraton and then she rushes off for FOUR FULL DAYS at a frenetic pace.  I’ve seen you in action, MICHELLE, but tell the Audience just how busy you and your Staff are in monitoring the Standards that you’ve approved and how you roam the Trade Show Floor.

NEW HOPE NETWORK is also Publisher of a Consumer Magazine “DELICIOUS LIVING”, full of recipes, health tips, what’s new, supplements, beauty and living.  Where can our Audience pick up a copy of “DELICIOUS LIVING”?

You’ve recently come upon a new way of eating for yourself.  A ketogenic lifestyle.  WHAT IS a KETOGENIC LIFESTYLE … and YOUR ORGANIC GOOD FOOD CHOICES that support it?

What are the BENEFITS of a KETO LIFESTYLE?  What has it done FOR YOU?

If someone wants to be just like you, what’s a good KETO resource for someone in our Audience to refer to?

Sometime, if you’d like to read how rigorous MICHELLE IS in insuring that good food is, in fact, GOOD FOOD, go to www.NewHope.com/Standards

EPISODE 12: We just finished Recording The Change Your Food – Change Your Life Show MUSICAL!

DLW: Our CHANGE YOUR FOOD – CHANGE YOUR LIFE!™ Presents: GOOD LiViN’ , a 16-Track Compilation CD Album, is an original and a one-of-a-kind.

1a MUSICALCD Front

We believe the culmination of our 10-years work of recruiting Singers and Musicians in a variety of Genres and the Lyrics Messaging creates a unique and energized ORGANIC GOOD FOOD, GOOD HEALTH Narrative, one of JOY, FUN, STRENGTH & EMPOWERMENT.

Jazz, Pop, Rap, Gospel, Blues.  You can EXERCISE to it, DANCE to it, SING to it, SHOP to it, BBQ to it, EAT to it, DRINK to it, LEARN to it, be INSPIRED by it.

IT IS many diverse voices coming together with but one MESSAGE: Our Change Your Food – Change Your Life Artist Ambassadors hope that one of their Songs catches your ear and makes that healthful difference in your life!

And EVERY SONG has a back story!

YOU NEED a good, long life, a life full of energy … a long, engaged life, with all your options always right in front of you.  But you can’t get that good life unless you choose FOOD!  And unless you’re making 100% Organic Good FOOD Choices, you’re not even choosing food! … but rather, you’re choosing from a variety of non-organic concoctions created by the boys in laboratories wearin’ white coats and rubber gloves! Don’t Buy The Lie!

I had the good fortune to ENJOY a 100% Grass-Fed Organic Rib Eye Steak, prepared medium-rare to perfection by Chef Al Rosas, The Organic Chef™.  It was soooooooooo GOOD that I asked our Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Artist Ambassador, ‘Cool Jazz’ Vocalist from Taos, NM, ELLEN LIVESAY, to write a smoky little song about it called, Sizzle for Me.

We think Sizzle for Me is the HOTTEST Song in the Organic Good Food World!

As one listener said, “After listening to Ellen’s Sizzle for Me, I wished I could have had a cigarette!”

1a MUSICALthumbnail_1a ELLEN LIVESAY NEWcw

ELLEN LIVESAY

Our Artist Ambassador, ELLEN LIVESAY, also asks, “Is there a farm girl in you?” in MaryJanesFarm, Ellen answers that question with a BRIGHT, FUN song.  And if you listen to it just a couple of times, you’ll be singing these lyrics to yourself: “Farm chick, city chick, urban, outdoor any chick … That’s you!”

ELLEN LIVESAY

I asked 14-year old KEELY CLARK, Winner of the Taste of Edmonds’ Junior Idol Contest, if she had the opportunity to get up on Stage and encourage her peers to make better food choices, Organic Good Food Choices, how would she pitch it, how would she sing it.  She and her 12-year old Sister, Gabby, wrote the lyrics, and we put a track to it.  The COOL THING about It’s Your Beat! is that it’s a song written by TEENS for TEENS, PEER TO PEER. Not an Adult tellin’ a kid what to eat!

On Track 15, we have an old BLUES GUY who still doesn’t quite get it with his Oreo® Cookie Blues.  He’s then CORRECTED by our 11 year-old NIQUE NIQUE with Secret to Life: “I may be young but I know what’s right, Change Your Food and Change Your Life!”  And as MULTI-YEAR AWARD-WINNING BLUES MASTER, NICK VIGARINO,

A CD “Review” from THE ‘Makin’ Kids HAPPY’ EXPERT!

  7

My Good Food Friends –

Katherine Pryor is SUCH FUN to be around.  I describe her as a walking CELEBRATION of LIFE!  No one CHEERIER!

Trouble with children ENJOYING Spinach? No problem! Katherine is Author of a delightful little children’s book, “Sylvia’s Spinach”.

2

      2a      1

Trouble with children WANTING to grow ZUCCHINI? Once again, no problem! Her SECOND Book, “Zora’s Zucchini”, was released this August.

Katherine teamed up with the Artist Illustrator from her first Book, Anna Raff, New York City, and Publisher, Readers To Eaters.

Here’s an entertaining Interview with Katherine on Food Sleuth Radio by Host Melinda Hemmelgarn, RD.

Katherine has a popular and much-in-demand  in-School reading-directly-to-the-Children Show to include her little red wagon FILLED with Spinach to tasteand they DO!  I’ve SEEN it!

5

The “Sylvia’s Spinach” story is so popular that now it’s in paperback to reduce the price to help get its GOOD EATING Message into even wider distribution.

So, that’s two down, S & Z, and 24 more to go. She’ll have her own Fruit and Vegetable Library.  STAY TUNED!

I know Katherine, and HER  HAPPINESS and THEIR  HAPPINESS is not made up for this pic! It’s REAL!!!! She does that to KIDS!

Katherine’s review of our soon-to-be-released “CHANGE YOUR FOOD – CHANGE YOUR LIFE!™ Presents: GOOD LiViN’” Compilation CD Album:

“Hi Dennis,

I finally had a chance to listen to the whole CD in one sitting this weekend. My husband & I listened to it on a drive out to a friend’s house in Redmond, which seemed perfect, as I imagine a lot of people will listen to it while driving!

When I first held the CYF-CYL CD in my hands, I wondered how on earth all those different artists and genres would possibly fit together, but you’ve done it! The album is a celebration of life and the feel-good power of real food. The artists deliver their message with passion, humor, and the conviction of converts who’ve seen the dark side of industrial food but who can finally see the light.

WARNING: GOOD LiViN’  was so darn infectious I was still singing along hours after the music stopped. Then again, that’s the kind of viral message we need to be spreading!

GOOD LiViN’  is my FAVORITE song on the album, although Pastor Wyatt with ‘Til My Change Comes is a close runner-up!

GOOD LiViN’ – LIVE! and 7 HOT MINUTES of ‘Til My Change Comes – LIVE!” — both are incredibly powerful.

I’ve thought a lot about how I would “review” this for you, and hope you know how seriously I’ve taken this. I believe in what you’re doing & am so, so impressed at your vision and the talent of all it took to create this.”

A WSFFN Dinner Party!

IMG_6676

My Good Food Friends –

I attended the Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network’s Fundraising Dinner last year, and it was soooooooo DELICIOUSLY  FUN, and such an important Event in support of GOOD FOOD, that I thought I’d better bring my camera and take some pictures

to be able to share the Evening with those who, UNFORTUNATELY, weren’t there. AND maybe encourage a reader or two to make a contribution in support of WSFFN’S ‘good works’.

On Sunday, I was wearing my Change Your Food – Change Your Life! GOOD FOOD TOUR i AM what i EAT! T-shirt, and this guy was reading the back of it: “I changed my life at … Health Care in Communities of Color, Keys to Healthy Living. MIND, BODY & SOUL. Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Presents: a little singin’ … a little cookin’” He said stop and tell me more. Good he read the T, asked me to stop and that I stopped, because Mark turned out to be an Author and a VERY CREATIVE packager. An inspiring book, “Charlie’s THINKING CHEESE™”, packaged with inspirational note cards and envelopes, inspirations for everyday, stickers and ‘Pure & Simple Recipes, Filled with Fast & Tasty Treats!’ Makes for a really nice gift.

Now, I like chips as much as the next guy, but after having 221 varieties of chips shoved my way … besides, the best deal on the fair grounds is ALWAYS  QUE PASA® Organic Tortilla Chips … I started to look for something DIFFERENT! And I FOUND IT!

45

NOT those dried banana chips, but banana snacks, soft, moist and chewy!

And the Chocolate Covered … well …

CELEBRATING Organic Good Foods with

GOOD LiViN’

 

Doin’ a Forum right!

My Good Food Friends –

I’ve been a Member of the Children’s Environmental Health Working Group of Washington (CHE-WA) since its Founding in early 2008.  The CHE-WA Working Group http://washington.chenw.org/CEHgroup.html is pretty much the Who’s Who of Children’s Environment Health: EPA Region 10 Children’s Environmental Health, Washington State/Seattle/King County Departments of Public Health, Washington State Department of Ecology, University of Washington Children’s Environmental Health, Director, The World’s Library of Toxicology, American Lung Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility, King County Hazardous Waste Management, University of Washington Ecogenetics Center, University Researchers, Government Agencies, Educators, Health and Child Care Providers, NPOs, Private Consultants, Community Members and Businesses.  It’s quite the collaborative, ever-expanding network.

The CHE-WA MISSION: To work collaboratively with diverse groups to eliminate children’s harmful environmental exposures in the Puget Sound region and beyond during their most critical developmental years: pre-conception to age eight.

As we say here at CHE-WA: “Healthy kids offer hope for a healthy World.”

WE ARE:  CHE-WA

WE ARE: CHE-WA

This seriously committed, and yet FUN Group, meets monthly to learn from guest speakers and each other, to present emerging science, study and project updates and reviews, to share best practices, to work together on projects of cross-common interest, to leverage resources and to eat ORGANIC DONUTS! www.MightyO.com

I’ve been to a jillion Conferences, Forums and Symposiums, most of which put me to sleep as ‘speakers’ drone on, reading their own PowerPoint™ presentations.  Makes ya want to yell, “Just mail it to me and let me go home!”

Well, my Colleagues, and in particular, Gail Gensler, Local Hazardous Waste Management Program of King County, Margo Young, EPA Region 10 Children’s Environmental Health, Aimee Boulanger, Private Environmental Health Consultant, Carolyn Gleason, MS, HRSA, Rachel Koller, Private Environmental/Toxics Consultant, Steven G. Gilbert, PhD, DABT, Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders, Holly Davies, PhD, Senior Scientist, WA State Dept of Ecology and Nicole Thomsen, King County Public Health … along with EPA’s Gretchen Stewart’s glossy, full-color 12 page Program so that you could tell who the players were … produced a WINNER!

2

Fast-paced A-List Panel Presentations, Discussions, Conversations and Q & A from both the Audience and between the Panelists themselves!  At one time during the height of an 8-Member Panel discussion, I thought I was watching the Discovery Channel!

FULL of brilliance and energy, our very own Master of Ceremonies, Margo Young, EPA, Region 10 Children’s Environmental Health Coordinator, ran the day!

3

 With her professional expertise, warm and quick sense of humor, Margo was adept in combining headiness with some happiness.  The way she encouraged and cajoled the Audience into asking questions was a good as any TV Game Show.  And OF COURSE, there were PRIZES!  Lots of THEO Organic Fair Trade Chocolate Bars that made even the shy ask questions!

And for those of you who believe timeliness is next to Godliness, as I do, you would have loved this Forum.  You could have set you watch to the printed Segment times in the Program!

The biennial CHE-WA Forum 2013 was a BIG, sold-out, SUCCESSFUL Event of 200 influencers, decision-makers, decision-leaders with brilliant scientists and engaging panelists from across the country.  The Forum presented and showcased the most current environmental health science: Its relevant concerns, threats and avoidance of risks to health.

4

 And hot social media was in play, too.

The CHE-WA Tweet MASTER at work, Krysta Thornton, American Lung Association,  along with Hanady Kader, EPA Region 10

The CHE-WA Tweet MASTER at work, Krysta Thornton, American Lung Association,
along with Hanady Kader, EPA Region 10

Go to https://twitter.com/KidsEnvirHealth and take a read of the Tweets that were LIVE from the Forum.  Lots of energy, some pretty heady stuff and FUN pics of the Organic Good Food!  There are reTweets and Favoreds with several then appearing on Facebook Pages!  UNCLE MATT’S® Organic reTweeted within one minute of the Tweet @UncleMatts with pic!  Some reTweets by a ‘What’s happening in Seattle Restaurants’ outfit that’s not even ‘Following’ and some ‘Following’ by those we’ve never heard of!  A Favored by Seattle Children’s® that has 27,708 followers!!! www.SeattleChildrens.com

For Marketing an ‘Event’, there’s synergy in Tweeting as there are reTweets and Favoreds.  #CHEWAForum2013 ends up with a lot of eyes on it and leaves a pretty good Story of its significance.  (Another heavy Tweeter/ReTweeter needs to be called out here, too: Marilyn Hair, MPH, University of Washington Ecogenetics Center! http://depts.washington.edu/ceeh/)

Unlike so many ‘health’ conferences, when during the break they serve equal®, Splenda®, Diet Coke® and a variety of non-organic ‘foods’, which sends a mixed message, at the CHE-WA Forum 2013, an ALL Organic Continental Breakfast, Lunch Buffet and Afternoon Snacks was catered by Portage Bay Café: Eat like you give a damn www.portagebaycafe.com

6

 At THIS Forum, you could have gained weight … the Organic Good Food was so DELISH and ABUNDANT!

And as you might have imagined, EVERY detail was covered, to include even an Organic Zero-Calorie Sweetener!

7

 Because you KNOW, if you’re going to eliminate a few environmental health risks in life, start with making the Organic Good Food Choice!
