Luncheon Meeting - Leslie Science & Nature Center: A program for the birds . . . and kids, and community

A few years ago one of the jewels of the Ann Arbor Parks system “went private,” when the Leslie Science Center became the Leslie Science & Nature Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to continuing and expanding education programs that had served the community with excellence for decades. This unique public-private partnership (the land and buildings are still City-owned) has exceeded expectations, added a Raptor Center, and now has a new Executive Director. Meet her and one or two of the raptors (a Bald Eagle, perhaps, and/or Red-Tailed Hawk or Great Horned Owl), and learn about Leslie’s summer camps supported in part by an Ann Arbor Rotary grant.

Did you know that Packard Health is Washtenaw County’s third largest provider of health care to the under- and uninsured population? With a 50/50 balance between that group of greatest need and insured patients, and with a salaried staff of excellent health professionals, for 37 years it has provided medical care and service of the highest quality, and stability and continuity of patient care delivery unique in the County. Dr. Rion, who succeeded founder Dr. Jerry Walden as Medical Director in 2007, will tell us how Packard Health is coping with the current challenge of ever more patients without adequate (or any) health insurance and preparing for the future.

America is paying increasing attention to what seems to be an epidemic of obesity. Club member Roberto Frisancho has devoted his academic career to understanding connections between biology, evolution and culture in determining expression of human physical traits, and to evaluating contemporary traits such as obesity as byproducts of past biological adaptations. With his expert guidance, we’ll leave this meeting perhaps no slimmer, but with more well-rounded appreciation of how we got into this predicament and what can be done about it.
