Canyon Ranch Institute
Dear Friend of Canyon Ranch Institute,   

  

I hope you're enjoying a healthy and inspiring fall season. Here at Canyon Ranch Institute, we're inspired by CRI Founder Mel Zuckerman, who recently told us, "Life is a wonderful gift, and with hope, purpose, and perseverance, you can accomplish almost anything." 

 

We're thrilled to share with you that in addition to new partnerships with Ohio State University College of Nursing, Berkshire Health Systems, and Tucson Medical Center, CRI continues to sustain our other wonderful partnerships to improve health and well being. We will soon announce several more new partnerships that we've been developing with organizations that share our mission.

  

CRI is also expanding in new ways. In 2013, we welcomed our first participant in the McIntire Fellowship, a new program for young professionals. We're also expanding the ways that individuals can volunteer with CRI, and we have new career opportunities opening up.

  

On behalf of CRI President Richard H. Carmona, M.D., M.P.H., FACS, I'm also pleased to announce that our Board of Directors is growing, and he will soon introduce you to our new members!

 

As always, please contact me with your suggestions - and always feel free to share what inspires you and your community!

 
Jennifer Cabe, M.A. In Good Health,
