A post from our friends at the Olympia Free School for a class up here in Seattle Town:
Title: Radical Media Convergence Workshop
Pamela Wible, a practicing radical doctor from Eugene, Oregon, will give a remarkable presentation. She has merged health care empowerment with radical media in every manner including videos, itunes, website publishing, social bookmarking, search engines and soon a nationwide book tour. She has given workshops around the country including at the Gesundheit Institute (as featured in the movie Patch Adams) and at Andrew Weil's Center for Integrative Medicine: "Burnout to Bliss: How Patients are Healing Physicians and Changing the Face of Medicine." She has also volunteered during the Hurricane Katrina at the Astro Dome among other places and later given presentations on "Googling My Way to Katrina: Breaking Rank When Necessary" and "Community-Designed Ideal Medical Care: The Grassroots Health Care Revolution." She was also in the middle of the 1999 protests that successfully shut down the 1999 WTO in Seattle and found herself surrounded by police shooting people at point black range with rubber bullet while the police threw concusssion grenades at people and she decided, in her words "to engage in my own form of protest." Her love-centered work combined with her radical experience and workshops have resulted in inspired audiences throughout America. To hear and read a podcast review of one of her presentations at the Healthcare Justice Gathering by one of the organizers of the Radical Media Convergence, please click here. This free of charge workshop was organized by members of the Peace Communities and the Freeschool Community as part of the Radical Media Convergence.
Her workshop will start at 9am on Thursday, May 28th, 2009 and continue until 11am. To register and receive location details, please call (206) 337-1556 anytime, 24 hours 7 days a week and leave your number and the best to return the call.
