Hello Laura! What an awesome introduction, you are so inspiring in your list of endeavours. I could only wish to organise me life better and accomplish more of the things I am passionate about. I am very into mindfulness as well as of recent, and I have taken yoga on - still working on that breath though! I am looking forward to hearing more from you in the coming days. xx Joan

Thanks for your very kind words, Joan. Sounds like we share some interests!

Thanks Laura, welcome to the great collection of global professionals of the coursera community. Congrats for your new position too! If I may ask, what does it take to be coursera community manager for members like me? I suggest, coursera should also start to privilege its mentors to take some specialization courses of their interest for free. This is like an encouragement to their support to their students.

What do you think of the future of OneHealth concept? Do you think its practical in areas with very little awarness? and of course in the era of Ebola and other zoonotic diseases?

Thanks for the you tube introduction. That was great!

Laura, what a lovely introduction indeed... Look forward to your future posts. Coursera is a great forum of likeminded peers, sharing of thoughts, educating one another with diverse perspectives from here there and everywhere!
I find governance in Thailand lacks empathy, whether for animals or minorities.. I refuse to buy products from there, especially from the fisheries sector, given the slavery conditions employees are made to suffer. I read in the Guardian newspaper some time back, minority members are kidnapped and made to work on board under harsh conditions, until they are half dead. They are thrown off the boats into the sea when they no longer serve a purpose.
I am sure you will enjoy studying Coursera courses. Having read so many myself, highly recommend them. Presently, I am in the midst of Social Psychology at Wesleyan.. what a course, and the knowledge acquired makes one understand the workings of humanity..... even if disappointing... I was asked to mentor this course, and accepted, having translated its lectures to Spanish....
Enough for now..
Look forward to your posts as Claire.. I have been unable to access her video.. wishing both the best,

Thanks for the warm welcome, @Birgilio Rivera Cabrera, @lkhan, @NetWork – and everyone who has commented here!

I love hearing about your favorite courses. By the way, a Teaching and Learning Specialist here at Coursera has invited people to share their favorite courses here. Sharing your favorite courses – and what you liked about them – can help other learners find courses that are a good fit.

Since joining Coursera, I've completed two courses: Leadership through Social Influence and Animal Behavior and Welfare. At the moment I'm taking Learning How to Learn. One course I recently learned about and would like to take is Indigenous Canada. I'll have to fit it into my schedule somehow!

Hi @NetWork. We'll be working on a system to recognize the help you provide to other learners and we expect that to be ready toward the end of the year.

Regarding One Health – I think that people living in less developed countries generally have a more intrinsic understanding of One Health; it's often people who live in highly industrialized societies who are not necessarily aware of the strong connections between environment, other animals, and human beings because we have been so distanced from the interrelationship.
