Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to an interactive dialogue exploring the diversities that make our communities so rich.

Brewer and Heiple are in the midst of a two-week journey through the largest freshwater basin on the planet: the Great Lakes.

The following local environmental thought leaders will participate:
Peter Whitehouse (moderator), professor of neurology, founder of the Intergenerational Schools, and a physician and ethicist;
