People don’t have to be professional storytellers or to have memorized a story to tell in order to enjoy Story Circles. When the Multicultural Committee decided to adopt the idea of Story Circles from Friends School of Baltimore, our Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Jennifer Maraña, volunteered to facilitate.

A new study was released last month by researchers out of Norway that looked at whether physical activity and sedentary time were correlated with an increased risk of an early death. The research team analyzed data from eight previous studies done in Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the U.S., which looked at a total of 36,383 people who were at least 40 years old and with a mean age of 62.6. The participants in the studies that were analyzed were tracked over an average of 5.8 years.
