Regionally Speaking, Tuesday, November 9, 2021
Today: Sinai Forum executive director Leslie Plesac is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the unique way that Holocaust survivor Max Eisen spoke last Sunday to the audience on Purdue University Northwest's Westville campus. Leslie also has details on available season tickets for the series, since many are attending the speeches virtually, rather than in-person on campus. Pew Charitable Trust project director Tiffany Russell talks about the deep research that her team conducted into whether 911 call centers around the country are ready to handle more behavioral health crises. She says they are not. Sheila Matias, the executive director of the PNW Society of Innovators, talks about the Nov. 17th luncheon and 2021 Innovators induction ceremony. It will be held at Avalon Manor in Merrillville. Sheila reviews the list of inductees, which include representatives of business, industry and nonprofit organizations that are offering innovations toward solutions, benefiting society and creating measurable value to the community at-large.
