Jonas Salk’s views on Creating an Epidemic of Health by Heather Wood Ion

Heather Wood Ion I held a workshop, supported by the VA, in Washington DC in 1999, called “Creating an Epidemic of Health” that was based on an earlier paper Creating an Epidemic of Health with the Internet.  It was based on a notion of Jonas Salk, that this epidemic of positive health behaviors.  Heather Wood Ion, a close friend of Salk’s, delivered this wonderful presentation that I think needs broader distribution.

“Survival of the wisest depends upon whether we use our tools as good ancestors of the future.  Only a few are needed to visualize and to initiate a process that would become self-organizing, self-propelling, and self-propagating, as is characteristic of evolutionary processes.”
