A big shot of info about vaccines

Kudos to Dartmouth's Dickey Center for putting on one stage eight experts on disease, vaccines, and government health policy. The topic? How society can stem the tide and shore up vaccine confidence. "I don't think we're going to fix social trust," says Dartmouth Professor of Government Brendan Nyhan. "...We have to think about the [influencers] in people's social networks they trust—the health care, religious, and business leaders they trust and mobilize them."

New from Going the Dismas

Episode 7 – Burlington Dismas House residents, Aaron & Matthew, share the importance of supportive community, attempts at self medication, accessibility of substances on the dark web, and the Federal drug court system.

Dismas of Vermont provides therapeutic community to men and women leaving incarceration and reconciling with the community. One of the main features of the Dismas model is our community dinners in which volunteers prepare and join us for dinner and story sharing.

New from Shelf Help!

Episode 26 – Beyond Goodnight Moon: Board books for infants and the people who love them!

The bookstore owners had fun thinking about books for the youngest among us and the people who love them, which led to a debate about who are board books really for -- kids or adults?

Shelf Help is a collaboration between the Book Jam, a nonprofit designed to inspire readers; Yankee Bookshop; the Norwich Bookstore; Still North Books & Bar, and JAM – Junction Arts & Media.
