So what could be more fundamental to sustainability than keeping ourselves and everyone around us healthy?

I am dashing off to the airport to catch a flight to Philadelphia, so I have only a moment for a quick post. But I wanted to point yor attention to this great piece on having difficult conversations. It makes me think about the kinds of conflict that sometimes flair up when we work collaboratively as part of a SART or MDT.
