Purpose of the blog

This blog has been initiated to extend a series of workshops that explore ways to open up new directions in epidemiological thinking and research.  In the workshops participants are introduced to tools and processes for individual reflection and group interaction designed to produce the insights and to deepen the people-connections valuable for seeing new paths and generating new opportunities.  This blog addresses the need for ongoing support if tools, processes, connections, and insights are to be translated back into our specific work settings.

Workshop participants are invited to join the blog to share inquiries & resources, plans for practice, requests for collaboration or support, themes about the workshop topic, and process themes. (To join the blog accept the invitation that will be sent to you or email the organizer to get an invite. Feel free to use an online handle. When you decide what to share assume that your posts can be viewed by the general public.)

Items from earlier workshops and discussions will be backdated to the time that they were originally written. Blog members can also submit items by email–contact the organizer to get the email address.
