Doris Dewton: Looking Back on 45 Years of the Vail Symposium

DORIS DEWTON – Current Program Committee I have been involved with the Vail Symposium since we moved here full-time in early 1994.

7 Great Sir Ken Robinson Quotes

Diet Terminology: A Patient’s View

The following is a submission from Vail Symposium audience member Hank Mader regarding his experience with a plant-based diet. He submitted the following message following the “Putting Total Health Back Into Healthcare” with Dr. Jandel Allen-Davis.  I enjoyed reading Rod Connolly’s (“Health Insights” article) entitled “Positive change in Nutrition can help you lose that weight”…

“The more you know, the more you know you don’t know”

Maybe it was Aristotle who said “The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.” I say maybe because the verbiage sounds a bit basic when compared to the typical wisdom handed down by the father of modern formal logic. Maybe goodreads.com was lying in their attribution of this fun saying. However, if…
