¿Estamos locos? No se puede comer de todo | Alicia Baldó | TEDxAlcoi

Siempre me ha interesado la relación y el impacto que tienen la nutrición y el estilo de vida en nuestro organismo, tanto en la salud como en la enfermedad. Licenciada en Farmacia Industrial y Clínica, especialista en Atención farmacéutica y en Nutrición, el binomio Salud-Nutrición ha sido -y es- esencial en mi vida tanto personal, enfocada a la búsqueda del bienestar, como en mi vida profesional, al convertirse en guía de mis estudios y mi trabajo. Trabajar en muchas ciudades diferentes y en varios paises ha sido la causa de que ahora me defina como una entusiasta defensora de la necesidad de educar a toda la población, pero en especial a nuestros más pequeños, en hábitos alimentarios correctos y estilo de vida saludable.

Who will lead our next civil rights movement? You. | Adam Foss | TEDxMidAtlantic

Who will lead our next civil rights movement? You. | Adam Foss | TEDxMidAtlantic

It's time for a new civil rights movement, argues prosecutor Adam Foss, but we can’t keep waiting for the next Martin or Malcolm or Rosa. Because people are dying. Each of us has to speak up and stand up and serve to protect someone who has less. Adam J. Foss is a former Assistant District Attorney in the Juvenile Division of the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office (SCDAO) in Boston, MA, and a fierce advocate for criminal justice reform and the importance of the role of the prosecutor in ending mass incarceration. Mr. Foss believes that the profession of prosecution is ripe for reinvention requiring better incentives and more measurable metrics for success beyond, simply, “cases won” leading him to co-found Prosecutor Impact – a non-profit developing training and curriculum for prosecutors to reframe their role in the criminal justice system.
