Mazel Tov, Arlene Blum! A Woman with a Purpose

I'd like to give a special congratulatory shout-out to Arlene Blum, a phenomenal Jewess and founder of the Green Science Policy Institute, who was just awarded the 2008 Purpose Prize for people over the age of 60 who are taking on society's biggest challenges. 

Arlene was awarded $100,000 for her pioneering work in mobilizing scientists, government, industries, and consumers to protect human health by reducing toxics found in homes, office spaces, and the environment. Mazel Tov, Arlene! Learn more about Arlene Blum and her inspiring work at her website.
