    This is the archive of a live Infopeople webinar presented on April 30, 2014 by Rachel Foyt, Chelsie Harris, and Julie Winkelstein. The Human Library promotes community engagement and combats prejudice by bringing people with unique life experiences together to have open and honest conversations. "Human Books" represent a host of lifestyles and experiences that are often met with misunderstanding and discrimination. Books and Readers have the opportunity to speak personally and in private in a structured, protected space within a limited time but without any further commitment. The Human Library is a low-cost (even free!) program that will change the lives of each and every person who attends.

          • House Calls

            As the population in the U.S. ages, it means more people are visiting the doctor more often. That can be a problem because many seniors have severe health issues or trouble driving or walking. A throwback to an earlier age, Dr. Rabia Khan, fellowship-trained geriatrician for Lee Memorial Health System, spends her day making house calls. “Fort Myers has a very large geriatric population which benefits from the doctors actually going out to their homes, so it has come around full circle,” says Dr. Khan. At 92 years old, Russell Grasso has chronic leg pain. His wife Priscilla has health issues including balance problems. It’s difficult, even dangerous, to leave the home. “I can’t take a chance, she fell four times,” says Mr. Grasso. “He shouldn’t be driving because he’s so old, but he does. That’s how we get around,” Mrs. Grasso said. That’s when Lee Memorial Health System’s House Calls program comes into play. “We’re going out and seeing anybody that needs our services. They have trouble getting out of the house, either they have difficulty walking, or they’re really short of breath or they have chest pain. Any cognitive issues also, then we will come out to their house and see them,” says Dr. Khan. Doctors are able to spend more time when they come to a patient’s house, about an hour and a half for the first visit. They assess not only the patient but how they function in their own home. “If I notice that somebody is losing a little bit of weight, I’ll open up their fridge and say ‘Hey, you know, what’s going on here.’ If I need to bring in some older adult services, I can order that. If I notice that they would benefit from having a nurse coming out to the home with physical therapy, occupation therapy, we work with the local home health agencies,” says Dr. Khan. In-home visits go a long way in keeping people out of the hospital. “The whole point is to keep them from falling through the cracks,” says Dr. Khan. So the old-fashioned house call is a welcome idea.

                • Yaesu is an interesting place for adults any time of the night

                  Just off the train at Tokyo Station and on my way home through Yaesu, Nihonbashi, Hatchobori, and then Shinkawa. The route through Yaesu isn't one that I take often, but there is no good reason for that. Yaesu is a busy "after work" type neighborhood that has lots of little shops, business, restaurants, pachinko, and .... prostitutes for all of the tired salary-men who need to make a stop before they go home. Almost every time that I've walked through this area by myself I've been propositioned in someway or another. I'm not averse to these encounters, and think they are quite fascinating actually, but I've never tested the waters -- and for good reason. It's unfortunate that I wasn't approached while shooting this video, but I can understand why.
