Exploring The Implications Of NIH's Chimpanzee Decision

July 2, 2013 7:06 p.m.

The National Institutes of Health announced it plans to retire most of the chimpanzees it uses in research. Part of the reason the NIH sited was their similarity to humans and the fact that chimps in captivity are listed as threatened, with their wild counterparts are listed endangered. The agency says it will retain 50 chimps for study but it will not breed them and it will reevaluate that policy in five years. The Northwest is home to two of the eight members of the North American Sanctuary Alliance, one in Bend, the other in Cle Elem, Washington.  We'll find out more about how chimpanzees and humans are similar and explore the research implications of the NIH decision.

Military Families

Aug. 3, 2011 4:20 p.m.

Tammera Rosenleaf says the worst year of her life was when her husband served in Iraq during wartime. One of the ways she coped with the stress was to raise money to help protect him. She held bake sales to buy body armor for him and his unit. That helped her feel better but she says she never stopped worrying. Today, her husband is in the Army Reserves and unlikely to be called to active duty, but she says she feels compelled to educate people about the challenges that military families face. In many cases they are some of the same issues that veterans do: survivor guilt, PTSD, clinical depression, and increased risk of suicide. Tammera Rosenleaf will perform her own story and those of other military families at an event called Homefront 911 this Friday. The event features true life accounts written and performed by military family members, with a facilitated dialogue after the show. We'll speak with Rosenleaf and other members of military families about how having a loved one deployed has affected their health and well-being and how they cope.
