“I joined the Board to work on something VERY important, with people that I LIKE, where I can make a difference. I joined the Board because HIH does it ALL:  saves rainforests, provides healthcare, educates kids and adults, and reduces poverty. Who could want anything more?”

Maggie Gumbinner – Vice President

“I serve on the board of Health and Harmony because I don’t have to choose — I can help improve the health of the planet and the health of people who would otherwise not have access to quality health care. Also, I want to instill in my kids a need give back and help others and our environment. And, as we all know, we teach more with our actions than with our words.”

Clare Selgin, PhD – Vice President

Writing & Editing Services

“I serve on the Health In Harmony Board because it focuses on a problem of global importance and the program approach presents a unique and valuable model that needs to be fostered and promoted.”

Nancy Iannarone, CPA – Treasurer

“I joined the Board of Directors to work with others that are helping the world understand that the health of our environment is intertwined with our personal health.”

Julia Riseman, MBA – Secretary

Riseman Consulting

“I believe that we are running out of time to save the health of our planet from global climate change. While governments are stalled and unable to take sufficient action to ensure a healthy planet for all, Health In Harmony has given me a tangible means to make a difference by supporting specific communities to address both human and environmental health needs together.  As one of Health In Harmony’s founding Board members, I’m honored to return to serve on the Board once again, this time to support Health In Harmony’s steps towards replication.”

Anne Blackwood-Chirchir, MD

Innovators BioPharma Consulting, LLC

“I joined the board of HIH because HIH provides an integrated approach to meeting needs relevant to both human and environmental health.  While my clinical and drug development work have focused on individuals and on specific diseases, work with HIH enables me to apply my experience to global needs that are both urgent and amenable to intervention.”

Art Blundell, PhD

Natural Capital Advisors, LLC

“I serve on the HIH board because I am interested in knowing what makes HIH/ASRI so successful, and if it is possible to replicate elsewhere. We need to understand what is working by collecting evidence to develop our theory of change. I want to take part in conducting a solid evaluation of our impact on both human and environmental health, to help justify the how and why behind the statement that ‘We are having an Impact’.”

David Dishman, PE

Civil/Agricultural Engineer

“I am involved with Health in Harmony because I believe they have pioneered and established a model for human, animal and watershed health that is sustainable and reproducible.”

Jan O’Brien, AIA

Architect and Community Organizer

“Health In Harmony is such a shining light in this world that I wanted to know more about it’s inner workings and be a small part of it’s success. HH brings together a true love of both nature and humanity. It’s mission aligns perfectly with what green architecture strives to accomplish in the built environment.  I am also delighted with the fact that ASRI was born in a predominately Muslim country and breaks open misconceptions, especially as it places women in leadership roles.”

Jeff Wyatt – DVM, MPH, DACLAM

Seneca Park Zoo

“I am a veterinarian enjoying a conservation science and comparative medicine career at the Seneca Park Zoo and University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry in Rochester, NY. Since 2013, a Canadian veterinary colleague, Dr. Andrew Winterborn, and I have made two visits mentoring goat and cattle herd health best and sustainable practices for widows and farmers participating in ASRI’s agricultural programs. The resultant herd health and productivity outcome metrics are impressive. As a board member, my priority is to raise public awareness and funds in support of Health In Harmony’s mission promoting ecosystem health demonstrating the connection between healthy people, animals, and environment.”

Kathleen White, MD

Yale University School of Medicine

“Teaching physicians to provide medical care to the underserved , relying primarily on a patient-centered history and physical exam not only helps the medical care in that underserved location, but also instructs first world physicians that care is provided without expensive and oftimes unnecessary technology.   To be closely involved with people who believe deeply in this kind of medical care and medical education and sustainability of healthy lives and environment locally and globally, as you all know, has become my passion.  It has been a labor of joy to be involved with  the hard work of Health in Harmony and its project partner, ASRI.”

Melanie Webster, PhD

Explora BioLabs

“Although I have followed Health In Harmony’s growth for close to ten years, our family recently had the opportunity to visit Borneo. I saw first hand how Health In Harmony’s support for ASRI’s community-led environmental and health initiatives is making a positive impact on so many lives. This trip inspired me to join the Board to participate more directly in ensuring HIH has the resources and infrastructure needed to continue its powerful mission.”

Robert Rohrbaugh, MD

Yale School of Medicine

“Health In Harmony’s mission to provide incentives for conservation through provision of health care is quite unique and has inspired a new generation of health professions trainees who resonate with the linkage of health and the environment.  ASRI clinic has been a terrific site for Yale medical students to learn about the implementation of this mission and I am pleased to provide support to the organization through service on the board.”

Vince O’Hara

Silicon Valley Bank

“I joined Health In Harmony’s Board because I believe that its model is truly powerful and has much to teach the world: how medical professionals can diagnose and treat not only ailments of the human body, but also the interrelated ailments of human communities and environments, by using their social capital and listening.”
