Come to listen and discuss:  6/29/2014

Research Club
Impact HUB Nashville
438 Houston St, Suite 263
Nashville, TN  37203




Event runs from noon to 2. 

SPEAKERS:

Stacy Dorris is an Allergy/Immunology doctor at Vanderbilt who, in her spare time, has been organizing her neighbors to speed up the expansion of Nashville's sidewalks. She's spearheading a new private foundation to help raise money to build sidewalks. She'll talk about the importance of expanding the city's sidewalks and why more people should be energized about it. 

Yiaway Yeh is the former mayor of Palo Alto, California, and he currently runs Nashville's office of innovation. Yiaway will talk about why he's in Nashville and describe what kind of things his office is working on. 

Dave Gilbert is a tech entrepreneur. He founded Evermind, which is technology that helps family members monitor elderly loved ones. One-fourth of seniors live alone -- away from their families. Evermind aims to address that disconnection. Dave will talk about the dilemma of seniors living alone. 



Our speakers will talk for about 15 minutes apiece. The rest of the time will give everyone a chance to hang.

As always, it’s FREE, and there will be coffee provided by Bongo Java.

Research Club is an idea forum in which thinkers, hobbyists and other talented people share what they know with other Nashvillians. We come together and share ideas and passions in a laid-back setting, enjoy some brunch and stimulating conversation. In the process, we hope to energize the doers and thinkers in our city. It happens THE LAST SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH ( or, most months).

Shade Parade & The Sidewalk Foundation are committed to bringing high quality, well designed sidewalks to Nashville.  The Sidewalk Foundation is accepting donations - we are currently focused on bringing our pilot project - Bowling Av - to fruition.
