The SPARK: Looking Out for Public Health

The theme of The SPARK May 2020 is “Looking Out for Public Health.” Jeremy C. Park interviews Mike Larrivee of Compost Fairy, an organization helping to make Memphis a more sustainable community through the power of composting; Dr. Jerry W. Jones, Jr. of UT Health Science Center & Regional One Health, a doctor whose team uses a localized approach for pain treatment with trauma situations, in order to reduce suffering and exposure to opioids; and Mason Kauffman of US Biologic, a Memphis-based company delivering disease prevention by providing orally delivered vaccines to address the world’s great health challenges.

Plus, a profile of American Cancer Society volunteer Edgar Cruz from the most recent SPARK Awards.
