Our first guest is Scott Adzick, M.D. Surgeon-In-Chief at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The birth of a child is a joyous occasion for an entire family.  For the families of the more than 150,000 American babies born with a birth defect each year, however, it also brings fear and uncertainty. There are thousands of different types of birth defects and while there has been a lot of research to advance our knowledge, the causes of some are still unknown.  Furthermore, families are often unaware of available treatment and can feel like there are few options. Pioneering fetal surgeon Dr. Scott Adzick specializes in treating these babies’ unique needs – including surgical procedures when they are still in the womb.   Dr. Adzick will discuss this advancing technology and how fetal surgery can help save and better the lives of many children worldwide.

Our last guest is Laura Shields, Ph. DManager of Corporate Responsibility, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).With NYC Fashion Week coming up the week of February 11th, vegan materials take the stage as consumers increasingly prioritize concern for cruelty to animals and environmental sustainability when choosing what brands to buy. In 2022, more people are now aware that animals are abused and/or killed for their skins, wool, and feathers, and choosing clothing and accessories that are ethically produced—as well as functional, stylish, and better for the environment.  Just recently, Shields helped facilitate a vegan fashion collaboration between PETA and H&M.  Shields’ work to promote animal rights has been featured in The New York Times.
