Following Memorial Day, we explore with Pauline Lubens, Ph.D. candidate at U.C.I.’s Dept. of Public Health, her work dealing with the ravages of war on public health and the design of her dissertation studying grief among combat veterans who have lost friends with whom they have served. We hope to have her return to the program when her findings have been published.
During the second segment (minute 29:30), Irvine City Council Member Melissa Fox, elected to office last November, returns to the show to take us behind the scenes as she fields questions about a plethora of official municipal and regional duties. The Great Park was the main focus.
