Read Full Story Teaching more nutrition education and self-care skills like mindfulness and behavioral change to medical students and other health professionals will better prepare them to teach patients to lead healthier lives and help stem the public health “tsunami” of lifestyle-related diseases, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, according to David Eisenberg, adjunct associate professor of nutrition in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, executive vice president for health research and education at the Samueli Institute, and founder of Healthy Kitchens/Healthy Lives.Only 27% of U.S. medical schools teach the recommended 25 hours of nutrition, and many physicians report feeling inadequately trained in nutrition counseling, according to a Nutrition Source interview with Eisenberg on March 30, 2015. Eisenberg had recently co-authored an article on the topic that appeared online in Academic Medicine.“Perhaps we should learn from an earlier generation of medical educators that physicians can be powerful role models, as was the case with smoking cessation in the 1960s and ’70s,” Eisenberg said.
Thirty years have passed since the sudden death of Fr. Bill Toohey, the first director of Campus Ministry at Notre Dame, and friends and former colleagues said during his time at the University, he played a dynamic role in the spiritual life of the student body. Toohey, who died of encephalitis in 1980 at the age of 50, wanted to bring students to a larger consideration of what was at stake in their development as a people of God, she said. “He taught me to respect each person and see in them the life of God,” Pitz said. “He showed that we should love unconditionally all those we meet.” “The place would be packed,” she said. “I think everybody saw him as a man of prayer who had a deep commitment to preaching the Gospel.” “Bill was a gentle soul who wrote with a powerful pen and preached with a magnificent effectiveness,” McTaggart said. “He drew many to a deeper understanding of the Gospel and society. “We were very good friends from the novitiate days until his death,” McNally said. “In fact, he was my best friend.” McNally also introduced Br. Joe McTaggart to Toohey. Pitz said during his time as director of Campus Ministry, Toohey was the celebrant at the 12:15 p.m. Mass every Sunday in Sacred Heart Basilica. When Toohey became the head of Campus Ministry, he invited McNally to join him as an associate. “Those days on Campus Ministry were wonderful days for all of us,” he said. “There was lots of creativity, occasional run-ins with the higher-ups and a great emphasis on social justice concerns. Bill was our leader in every way.” Fitzgerald said Toohey always preached with passion and fire. John Fitzgerald, a 1965 alumnus, worked with Toohey as a member of the Campus Ministry staff. Toohey also taught Fitzgerald preaching for three years in the graduate seminary. He said Toohey’s life and witness taught him to stand up for what he deeply believed and experienced in the spiritual life. “Bill was humble and unassuming,” McTaggart said. “That is what I saw and experienced in him as he led our staff for 10 of the most growth-filled years of my own life.” Fr. Tom McNally, graduate of the class of 1949, said he first met Toohey in the Holy Cross novitiate in Jordan, Minn., in 1955. “Along the way he also became my spiritual director and mentor,” he said. “A whole generation of Holy Cross priests learned from Bill that we had no business stepping into the pulpit unless we were passionate and on fire about communicating the Gospel.” “When he stepped into a pulpit, he became a living sacrament of God’s word,” Fitzgerald said. “Those of us who were privileged to hear him will never forget the thrill.” “His preaching was powerful and charismatic,” former Walsh Hall rector, Jane Pitz, said. “He used language that students could understand and were drawn to.”

Urinetown is set in a futuristic city where a corporation owns all the toilets, so citizens must pay for their use. Aggravated by this arrangement, Bobby Strong (Fleeshman) organizes an uprising against Urine Good Company, a main holder of toilets, and its president Caldwell B. Cladwell (Day). When things intensify, Hope Cladwell (Russell), the boss’ daughter, must choose between Bobby and her father. Day appeared on Broadway as Victor in the 2011 production of Private Lives. His other stage credits include The Low Road, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, Entertaining Mr. Sloane, Timon of Athens, The Ugly One, Don’t Look Now, The 39 Steps, The Philanthropist, Cymbeline, Anything Goes, The Coast of Utopia, Hamlet, Candide, Troilus and Cressida and Oh! What A Lovely War. Day’s TV credits include Titanic, Sherlock and Doctor Who.

The London production will feature choreography by Ann Yee, set design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting design by Adam Silverman and sound design by Terry Jardine and Nick Lidster. West End favorite Simon Paisley Day is set to star in the U.K. premiere of Urinetown as Caldwell B. Cladwell. He joins the previously announced Marc Elliott (Eastenders), Richard Fleeshman (Ghost) and Tony nominee Jenna Russell (Sunday in the Park with George).

This month’s Instagram Takeover features South Carolina-based photographer Dillon Senn. Like most of the photographers who have taken over our account in previous months, Dillon was guided to the art of photography by his love for the outdoors, particularly the Blue Ridge Mountains of North and South Carolina.Check out Dillon’s work below and find out about his go-to spots in the Blue Ridge with our short Q & A. Don’t forget to follow him on Instagram @dead_head93 to stay up to date with his most recent adventures. “Whenever I need to get away and find serenity I can always count on finding it in the Linville Gorge. I can relax under the stars and clouds in the Chimneys enjoying the massive views and cliffs from my weekend home. Spending all the time I need to reflect past and present without seeing a soul.” “Watching the dense clouds rise from the valley 3,000′ below from Cesar’s Head as they dance around Table Rock and the Blue Ridges.” “A brisk cold evening chasing the days last light across the Roan Highlands from Grassy Ridge Bald. It’s views like this that feed the soul!” “Only accessible by kayak or boat, the 200 foot tall Sol’s Creek Falls will leave you speechless with it’s raw power, sheer cliffs, and the lush meadows that surround the base.” “Woke up atop Grassy Ridge Bald to my pup collecting sticks to stoke the fire and with the feeling of a new high… 6,165′ that is! It’s hard to beat a crisp morning sunrise on Roan Mountain!”[divider]Q & A with Dillon[/divider]BRO: How did you get into photography?DS: I would always solo hike with my dog for the first year and a half that I really began exploring the mountains. My girlfriend used to work weekends, so I would document the incredible places I went with my phone to show her so that I could take her when she was able to get a day off. I’ve upgraded to a professional camera a while back, and it’s taken off ever since.BRO: How long have you been shooting?DS: I’ve been into photography for about a year and half. Ever since the first time I picked up a camera it’s been my passion to capture all the beauty that surrounds me. I don’t see that stopping anytime soon.BRO: If you could only choose one area in this region to hike, explore, and photograph for the rest of your life what would it be?DS: If I had to choose one area to explore and shoot in it would have to be the Linville Gorge. Each mountain is extremely diverse from their look all the way to the feeling you get as you hike each one. The Gorge and the Linville River hold a ton of magic and well kept secrets within its cliffs. You can begin a day at the summit of a mountain and end it chasing waterfalls and trout down at the mighty river. The Gorge is what sparked my passion for exploring, and it will always hold a piece of my heart.BRO: Favorite musician from the Southeast/Mid-Atlantic?DS: I’ve always said that good music is food for the soul! One band I’ve been really hyped on lately out of the Southeast is Seven Handle Circus. I grew up playing with some of these guys and it’s incredible to see where the road has taken them.BRO: One piece of gear (minus your camera) you wouldn’t head into the woods without?DS: One thing I couldn’t do without hands down would be my Nemo Tent. I recently upgraded to the Nemo Hornet Tent and the difference it makes is unbelievable! I would live out of it if I could. The weight and durability matched with the design makes it heaven in a stuff sack!
Zack David Climbs the stairway to heaven during the 2015 KOTJ Photo Hunter Davis The King of the James is not for the faint of heart. Each leg of the race is demanding and requires advanced technique skills in mountain biking, trail running and whitewater paddling. The race can be completed solo or as a team. Teams of 2-3 can choose a portion of the race they would like to complete and relay the event. When the flag drops, a Le Mans-style start kicks off the event. Riders run to their bikes and take off on a 10 mile loop that winds its way around the banks of the James River. Learn more at www.kingofthejames.com After completing the mountain bike section, racers transition to a 4 mile technical trail-run through Forest Hill Park that eventually leads to the putin of the river. Finally, with worn out legs, competitors hop into boats and paddle to the finish line 2.5 miles downstream through the class III/IV whitewater of the Lower James River. The first person to hit the steps at the 14th street take out will be crowned the King or Queen of the James. From left to right: Leaving the startline during the 2016 KOTJ photo Rich Young.

This unique urban adventure triathlon has quickly become a tradition within the Richmond outdoor community. It is a celebration of not only the James River Park System, but also the community of people that make Richmond such a great place to live and play. Ultimately, raising needed funds for the James River Park is the goal of this event. The main fundraising efforts for this race will be to support a universal access ramp in the James River Park System. The Universal Access Ramp at Huguenot Flatwater will allow people of all ability levels access to both flatwater and downstream whitewater sections of the James River. This year marks the 6th annual ‘King of the James’ adventure triathlon in Downtown Richmond, Virginia. On Sunday, November 15th, individuals and teams will battle it out as they run the Forest Hill Trail loop, mountain bike Buttermilk and North Bank Trails, and paddle the urban whitewater found deep in the heart of Richmond’s fall line.
