Join us on Saturday, May 26th at 9:00 a.m. for an extraordinary show featuring authors Dr. Kate Tulenko and Carolyn Banguero.

Dr. Kate Tulenko is a physician, health policy specialist, and former coordinator of the World Bank's Africa Health Workforce Program. She recently served as team lead on Health Workforce Shortage for the "Reinventing Primary Care Project" for the Hope Street Group, a bipartisan coalition of business, civic, and policy leaders.

Her book, Insourced: How Insourcing Jobs Impacts Health Here and Abroad, addresses how the US is underinvesting in training young Americans to be health workers and instead imports doctors and nurses from poor countries with extreme health worker shortages. Follow Dr. Tulenko on twitter at @ktulenko, FaceBook at Insourced, and WordPress at ktulenko.

Carolyn Banguero has a Master’s in Teaching, has taught third grade for eight years and loves reading books to children. She volunteers each week at MEOW Cat Rescue in Kirkland, Washington, where she first learned about a cat named Paolo, who was found in the wild.  Paolo was born with defect.  His chest was concave and the heart and lungs were pushed over to the side, making breathing difficult.  To save this brave cat, Paolo had  surgery at MEOW Cat Rescue.  Carolyn wrote a children’s book titled Paolo’s Adventures about this cat’s journey of learning how to trust people and healing.  A percentage of the net proceeds will be graciously donated to MEOW Cat Rescue.  She lives in Newcastle, Washington with her husband, Edgar, her cats Gia and Kensey and her dog, Jana. Carolyn can be contacted at carolyn@paolosadventures.com.
