Location: 
Ceremonial Hall - 4th floor

Drawing on his life and work as an environmental advocate, endurance athlete, and wellness expert, Matthew will present state-of-the-art research on how lifestyle shifts and wellness practices that are aligned with ethics can dramatically improve our lives, our health, and our connection with others, and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Matthew is deeply committed to efforts to address climate change and teach wellness and sustainability practices that can improve lives and foster a more sustainable future. Matthew served on the board of the New York Solar Energy Society, and holds degrees from Skidmore College, Columbia University, and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

This week’s shared charity is Farm Sanctuary, which rescues, rehabilitates, and provides lifelong care for hundreds of animals that have been saved from stockyards, factory farms, and slaughterhouses. At their three shelters, rescued animals are given the care and love they need to recover from abuse and neglect. All of the animals enjoy nourishing food, clean barns, and green pastures each and every day.
