Our facilitator, Stacey Goldring, joined us with more on "Heartburn," this month’s Book Club selection, and why she chose it.

Benjamin Harvey

Jacksonville native Benjamin Harvey, founder and CEO of AI Squared, a tech firm that helps companies adopt artificial intelligence, gave a speech earlier in the week at the Center of Hope at Emmett Reed Center as part of a Youth Empowerment Speaker Series. He joined us, along with Vicki Waytowich with the Partnership for Child Health, which is supporting the speaker series, to discuss the series, as well as his latest endeavors

And with blood supplies already low, Ian could not have come at a worse time, as one of the things it affected was much-needed blood drives around the state and region. James Skahn, district community development coordinator of LifeSouth, joined us with details about how to help those in need.
