We would like to introduce you to some of our new contributors to the "Science of Staying Healthy" blog. These three people are going to be making an appearance on our blog with new material on cooking, healthcare, the pharmacology of natural products and much more. They are extremely knowledgeable people and we can't wait for them to share their wisdom with all of you. Here are the new and familiar faces that will be taking this blog to new places.
Katy is a proud Boulderite and cooking enthusiast who has made the transformation from being an endurance runner to a cross-fitting culinary master. After her leave from the running scene, Katy sought out new and challenging activities that could stimulate her passion for action and knowledge. Hunting soon became a big part of her life, a passion she shares with her husband, and has been able to learn the skills to hunt, process wild game, and bring it home for the next meal. Traveling around the world and learning about different cultures has also added to the depth and knowledge she has accumulated in the field and in the kitchen. The combination of the two isn't seen often but is growing in occurrence as sustainable hunting and cooking catch on - a chef with the know-how in the kitchen to make immaculate meals and the mindset of a sustainable hunter who is willing to take advantage of any part of the animal that seems fit. All in all, she's a force to be reckoned with. In her time off from volunteering, and taking care of her family, she is looking for the next hunt and the next culinary endeavor.
Dr. Gregory B. Stock
Dr. Gregory Stock a best selling author and public speaker, has always been an advocate of health and wellness. Dr. Stock helped found Signum with his brother, Dr. Jeffry Stock, and his nephew, Maxwell Stock, with the mission to bring better health, through novel products. His best selling book, The Book of Questions, was a way for people to create deeper connections through something crucial to our mental health, but something we don't do often enough, question. Throughout his career he has questioned the effectiveness of healthcare and the medical industry, looking at the disconnect between the technology we have access to, and the way that we use it. Recently he has moved from his position at Mt. Sinai to work closely with The Book of Questions. Meanwhile he will be a contributor to The Science of Staying Healthy blog, discussing with us the state of healthcare, the disconnect between technology, social media and meaningful relationships, and how we as a species need to maintain a healthy lifestyle because it is what we evolved for.
Dr. Jeffry B. Stock
As a Princeton Professor, there isn't much that Dr. Jeffry Stock doesn't know, which is why we want him to share just a little of his knowledge with you. He has worked his entire life in academia and helped found Signum with Dr. Gregory Stock, his brother, and CEO Maxwell Stock, his son. Over the years Dr. Stock has built his place in Princeton teaching molecular biology, the pharmacology of natural products and many other courses. He'll talk to you about how the food you eat affects your body, from brain, to micro-biome and how your brain is a cornucopia of chemicals that enable you and disable you from doing certain things and engaging in certain behaviors. We want you to get into the nitty gritty with Dr. Stock to look deeper into the science than you ever have before. Dr. Stock can also dive into some of Signum's products, the science behind them, and how they factor into the "Science of Staying Healthy". He is a believer of the "Science of Staying Healthy" and in a way has been the culmination of all of his work in academia at Princeton.
We can't wait for all of you to get to know these amazing people and the knowledge they hold. Over the course of the next few months you'll hear from each of them as they go into what they know best. Again we implore you to strike up conversation, debate, and peel away the layers of the "Science of Staying Healthy".
