"Thanks so much for affording Claire Rubin the opportunity to share her extraordinary wealth of knowledge and insight."
Paula D. Gordon, Ph.D.
"Having only participated in a few sessions thus far, saying that this session was the first to touch on THE elephant in the EMS room is nevertheless significant. Wrapping up the lessons of history into a succinct, concise package available to the masses is laudatory and needed. Given that my knowledge of history up until recently was sparse and inaccurate, the value of Dr. Rubin's work cannot be overstated."
