May 2015 CEO Corner

May is almost over and it’s tempting to highlight the 60+ gardens, real estate construction, the busy-ness of the season, etc. 

However, doing good work is important, and as we say around here, the “magic” is in the learning (and increasingly in the teaching). As we learn by doing, we then must share that with others. For example, our innovative work on child lead poisoning has positioned Isles to show what we’ve learned, and impact public policy. With our work in the THDC neighborhood in the North and West Wards of Trenton, we are supporting other important groups, like the Urban Mental Health Alliance. 

Finally, we celebrate another elder and mentor who has passed away – Louise Rolling. How lucky we are to stand on the shoulders of such good friends who make this work possible!
