Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela Talley

Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela Talley

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Announces 2007 Community Health Leaders

Princeton, N.J.

Leaders chosen from California, Connecticut, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York and Puerto Rico will receive $125,000 each.

Pamela Talley
Owner and Clinical Nurse Specialist, Therapeutic Solutions, St. Louis
As a nurse, working in hospitals in St. Louis, Pamela Talley saw young patients suffering prematurely from a variety of illnesses. She embedded herself in the community to search for the reasons why. She witnessed the full spectrum of mental health issues, substance abuse, crime and incarceration that swallow up youth and destroy families in inner city St. Louis. She saw the negative impact of gentrification that destroys neighborhoods, and slashed budgets for public services, affecting older residents the most, many of whom are raising grandchildren. Determined to address the unique needs of senior citizens rearing young children, Talley organized the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program. The program includes a support group offering parenting education, counseling, information and referrals for seniors who find themselves once again in parenting roles. Crisis intervention and case management are focused on supporting families so they can stay together. And the members develop their own program of restorative activities—including going out to lunch, to the movies and gardening—to minimize their isolation and help them to maintain the energy required for parenting at an advanced age.

Re: Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela

Excellent! Truly a job well done. This is the sort of post that can really draw us closer together; united as we are by our common interest in St. Louis and medical science. There's just a couple of small points. Details really. Nothing of consequence. First off, we have no idea who Pamella Talley is. No one by that name or anything remotely like it has ever posted here. Secondly it has nothing whatsoever to do with EV. Other than that, though, it's perfect. Keep up the good work.

Since we already know Living Near Freeways Hurts Kids' Lungs, do you know what the long term effects are?
See: SLU will track children from cradle to adulthood in large nationwide study.

Children in the U.S. are likely to have environmental exposures and cultural
experiences that could affect their health that are different from those of
children in other countries, Leet said.

I'm still waiting to hear who Pamela Talley is and what all this has to do with electric vehicles. You are talking about a study on (fellow members please excuse the use of this word) gas vehicles.

Re: Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela

Let's see "What these investigators cannot do is fix the problem, Katz said. "Can we redesign urban neighborhoods so that no home or school is near highway traffic? Can we reduce the volume and/or composition of car exhaust so that highways no longer represent threats to the lungs of growing children?"

All this and still no hint of EV's (that's Elecric Vehicles in case you weren't aware Pat).
Rather a stretch of the imagination to read EV's (that's Elecric Vehicles in case you weren't aware Pat) into this article. So the solution is evidently to redesign urban neighborhoods so they aren't near highway traffic ...
or to reduce the composition of car exhaust so that highways no longer represent threats ...
Somehow this doesn't make much sense ... how does one reduce composition anyway, I'm not aware of this process, could you elaborate on the process? As for redesigning urban neighborhoods so they aren't near highway traffic, how do you propose this be done ... do we just tear down all of the existing neighborhoods and put them somewhere else? Maybe we should relocate the highway traffic instead, maybe even encourage the use of EV's (that's Elecric Vehicles in case you weren't aware Pat) on those highways.
I think promoting the use of EV's (that's Elecric Vehicles in case you weren't aware Pat) might be the best approach ... but there is no mention of EV's (that's Elecric Vehicles in case you weren't aware Pat) in the article.

Thanks for the links though, too bad there wasn't anything in them that has anything to do with EV's (that's Elecric Vehicles in case you weren't aware Pat).

Oh, I could go through similar analogies with the other articles that you posted if you like, they don't mention anything about EV's (that's Elecric Vehicles in case you weren't aware Pat) either.
I propose that we all discuss EV related subjects and post links to EV related articles or risk having our Off Topic posts unpublished.

With all due respect, Pamela Talley, Owner and Clinical Nurse Specialist deserves recognition but this is just not the proper forum to voice this recognition.

Board Moderator,
I recommend that we remove this post. It has nothing to do with EV's. Shall we all start posting random crap to make the point? Let's not go that way, it could get ugly.

Re: Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela

The comparison would be between a child raised next to a freeway and one raised in a community where only EV's are used, and there are several.
There are Environmentally Friendly Communities, and that data may be used to address some of the problems, as they have done in Europe with special lanes for EV's, free parking in downtown areas, access to Electric charging stations etc.
Respiratory problems was one of the big problems she identified in our Community as our Community Health Nurse, which we were not aware of.

Re: Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela

Pat,

I am still trying to figure out how Pamela Talley is a member of the V-Team.

Also now that you brought it up where are these communities, in the USA, where they only use EV's? I might want to move there.

Pat,

Really? ... "one raised in a community where only EV's are used, and there are several" ... Please elaborate, I would consider living there as well, Where is this community? Please tell us more.
Can you show us this data, it would be wonderful to have!

Bay Harbor, Mich., is a perfect example. Near the heart of the traditional automotive industry, over half of the residents in the exclusive, gated community drive a NEV.

BTW, what is this all about?

Your post about health studies on children has been unpublished. It is not EV related or related to the other community interests as described by the forum topics. This is the second time in as many days that you have posted similar material. Please refrain from doing this in the future. Thank you.

Re: Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela

Pat,

You are posting material that is "knowingly false".

"over half of the residents in the exclusive, gated community drive a NEV"

vs

"one raised in a community where only EV's are used"

Your post is misleading at best, are you aware that you signed a TOS agreement when signing up to this forum that states:"you will not use the V is for Voltage Forums to post any material which is knowingly false"?

Re: Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela

Pat,

Well that at least is a start to answer my second question, but some more detail would be nice since Bay Harbor is a rather LARGE city. I also find it strange that the only thing they seem to use are NEV's which are not allowed on streets outside these type of communities. What do they drive the remainder of the time? I would guess people who can afford to live in a gated community would be driving gas guzzling SUV's. So much for clean air.

I still don't know who Pamela Talley is though.

Re: Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela

That was just quick answer to a question. Bay Harbor, Mich should have less pollution than living beside a LA Freeway, so everything else being equal, what are the outcomes other than Respiratory problems between the two?

Re: Congratulations to fellow V Team Community Volunteer Pamela

If anyone is interested in learning more about the possible long range negative outcomes of non environmental friendly transportation on our children here is the link to the article that was unpublished. SLU gets $26 million to study children's health

The researchers will sample air, water and soil samples from study participants' homes and take biological samples, including hair, blood, umbilical cord blood, placenta and fingernails from the women and their children to determine what chemicals children are exposed to throughout life. That data will be analyzed along with genetic data.

Thanks for the link, as a parent I am very involved in environmental issues, and glad to finally see a long term study done.
