Proud of its positioning as one of America’s most influential cities, Dallas encourages its citizens to be contributive, actively thinking members of society. Today’s world provides no shortage of topics to critique; with the gap between the polarities of beauty and barbarity never having been so wide. We’ve reached an era where it is unnecessary to select ourselves as ‘idealists’, ‘realists’ or ‘optimists’ and having our interpretations of the world circumscribed by these stringent labels. Being forward thinking liberates us from labels, it is the acceptance of the world as being both a miraculous and deeply flawed place, containing every shade of grey in between, every hue equally worthy of our attention. Come and give your attention to these provocative workshops being held within the Dallas city area:
Healthcare Conference, Oct.28th-Health is the most fundamental human right, directly proportional to quality of life, yet it eludes many. Hosted by the Dallas Regional Chamber and held at the Adolphus Hotel from 7:30-9:30am, this workshop will outline all the pertinent logistics associated with the healthcare industry, delving into the bureaucratic tiers of medication from its point of production, to it’s over the counter accessibility. The panel of healthcare professionals will place emphasis on exploring ways to improve the current status quo of healthcare.
A Conversation with Gil Hoffman: an Insider’s Look at Mayhem in the Middle East, Nov.5th-As North Americans, living in a sphere of abundance and opportunity, it can be difficult to fathom the plight of other nations. In many senses, the calamity in the Middle East is happening a world away, though it is imperative to be cognizant of the fact that an issue involving any group of people pertains to ALL groups of people, as if the situation were to worsen, like tremors radiating from the epicenter of an earthquake, it will reach us. Gil Hoffman, Chief Political Correspondent for the Jerusalem Post, acclaimed for this introspectiveness and objectivity, will touch on issues as they have been unfolding in the Middle East. Tickets are $45 for members of the World Affairs Council, $60 for non-members.
Given the sprawling and bustling nature of our world-class city, at the Best Western Duncanville/Dallas we understand you need a tranquil place to rejuvenate yourselves for the next day’s activities. Book with us today and replenish with our complimentary hot breakfast and luxurious amenities.
