Beliefs and Values, Hearing the story of Dr Eastman

We had the extreme pleasure of meeting Dr. Cres Eastman, a renowned endocrinologist who has traveled all over the world taking action for his beliefs. He believes that every child has the right to normal brain development so he discovered a growing problem of cretinism in Tibet, he decided to do something about it. He also happens to be the grandfather of one of our classmates so it was such a wonderful opportunity for us to hear his story. His talk provided a chance for students to make connections about beliefs and values. He generously shared his time, ideas and advocacy and encouraged third graders to join him in taking action in preventing brain disease by simply checking their salt at home.  We could not have asked for a better real world connection.
