Alice Rothchild, author of Broken Promises,Broken Dreams, is a medical doctor whose contribution to the very first edition of the classic Our Bodies, Ourselves, brought her to study the health care system and its relationship to political and social environments. She then turned much of her non-medical focus to understanding the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and its relationship to US foreign policy and American Jewry. She co-chairs American Jews for a Just Peace, Health and Human Rights Project.

Also, a remarkable TED presentation by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a neuroanatomist, whose specialty is the postmortem investigation of the human brain as it relates to schizophrenia and severe mental illnesses. In 1996 Dr. Taylor suffered a stroke and, 8 years later she shares what she learned from that experience and why peace is possible.
