Audie Cornish, host of NPR's All Things Considered, joined TPR and our guests on Wednesday, June 15, at NOAH’s Event Center for TPR's annual Pinnacle Dinner. Cornish spoke about her experiences as a solo reporter, and then what she’s learned as a host at NPR. Cornish took time to look ahead to the future of NPR and how the network and its member stations can best inform and engage all of America. As you can see, she got the audience talking online!

What does it take to survive in the face of adversity? What about sickness? A major disaster? Why do some people seem ‘stronger’ than others? At TPR’s Think Science: Human Resilience, on May 27, the audience heard stories about people who have been through traumatic events, and a local researcher offered his own perspective on what makes it possible for humans to bounce back.

"Resiliency comes from hope." --Dr. Marian Sokol
