Between 2000-2007, I presented 80+ keynotes and lectures on mental health and homeless issues at universities, hospitals, and mental health centers across the US, Canada, Sweden, and Australia.
Media appearances include: NPR's "Fresh Air", "All Things Considered Weekend Edition," WNYC's "The Leonard Lopate Show."
