About Waltham
map
Waltham Massachusetts was founded in eastern Massachusetts in 1636 and incorporated into a town in 1738 and then into a city in 1884. The Charles River cuts a path through the southern section of Waltham and has been used throughout its history for transportation and industry. Waltham is probably most historically famous for the Waltham Watch Factory that made its home on the banks of the Charles and was a pioneer company of the industrial revolution.

The Charles River has given way to Route 128, the main economic center of the city and has the second largest office market in the greater Boston area. Waltham has a diverse housing market with multi-family houses near the downtown section and single family neighborhoods along its borders.

Waltham is the home for higher education with two of the most prestigious colleges in the east - Bentley College and Brandeis University. The downtown section of Waltham hosts many diversified restaurants guaranteed to satisfy any craving or palette along with many retail establishments.

With all of these amenities and its convenient location just off Route 128 and its public transportation systems which include the commuter rail - Waltham is an especially pleasant place to live or work.

The Boston Brain Tumor Ride
May is National Brain Tumor Awareness Month, calling attention to the need for greater public awareness about the disease and more funding for research to find a cure. Almost 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain or central nervous system tumor. This year alone, another 69,000 people are expected to receive that same diagnosis. Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children under age 20 and third leading cause of death among young adults age 20-39.An estimated 14,000 people in the United States will die from brain cancer this year alone. More so than any other cancer, a brain tumor can have life-altering psychological, cognitive, behavioral and physical side effects. Despite these facts, brain tumor research remains underfunded; in fact, there are only four FDA approved drugs available today to treat brain tumors. The Boston Brain Tumor Ride is an inspiring, family-friendly bike ride that connects teams of brain tumor survivors, patients, family members, caregivers, and friends all committed to supporting and honoring those affected by this deadly disease and raising money to find a cure. For the first time, a Fun Ride will be held for children ages five and under. All participants must wear a helmet, provide their own bicycle or tricycle, be accompanied by an adult, and have a signed waiver. The Kids’ Ride will start in the parking lot after the start of the Boston Brain Tumor Ride. All proceeds benefit the National Brain Tumor Society (www.braintumor.org), the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the brain tumor community in the U.S. and go toward raising vital awareness of this disease and funding critical brain tumor research for the discovery of new treatments, and ultimately, a cure for those living with brain tumors today and those who will be diagnosed tomorrow. This marks the 20th year that the National Brain Tumor Society has been leading the fight against brain tumors. To learn more about the Boston Brain Tumor Ride, register to ride, volunteer, and/or donate, please visit: http://events.braintumor.org/boston-brain-tumor-ride/. Unite to fight brain tumors!

Caring for Each Other in Life and in Death: the role of congregations in health care and end-of-life planning
Ministers have always helped plan and lead funerals and memorial services and offered pastoral care before and after death. However, in today's increasingly complex healthcare system and legal world, decision-making around healthcare planning and end-of-life can be incredibly confusing and fraught. Clergy may wonder about their role in end-of-life education and healthcare planning.

In this workshop, guest speakers skilled in guardianship and conservatorship law and palliative care will answer questions about the forms and processes and guide participants through case studies. Congregational leaders will share stories and best practices from their congregations. Participants will leave with handouts for congregational use including healthcare proxy forms, personal directives, and guides to starting a conversation.

Clergy and lay leaders (especially those with a background or interest in healthcare) are welcome to attend this workshop.
Lunch will be provided. 
Please contact Laura Shatzer (lauras@masscouncilofchurches.org) with questions.

A speech by Congressman John Lewis
Tuesday, June 10, 2014, 8 – 10 p.m.

Congressman John Lewis incarnates the civil rights movement that transformed the South and then the nation. Born to a family of sharecroppers in Troy, Alabama, he was educated at American Baptist College and at Fisk University. He conducted sit-ins in Nashville, and also became a Freedom Rider (sponsored by the Congress of Racial Equality). As chairperson of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee, Lewis spoke at the March on Washington in 1963, and is the last surviving major participant of that epochal moment in American history. Lewis subsequently made a successful transition (to quote Bayard Rustin, organizer of the March on Washington) "from protest to politics." Since 1987 Lewis has represented, as a Democrat, the Fifth Congressional District of Georgia, which covers much of Atlanta. Our keynote speaker is the author of an autobiography,Walking with the Wind(1999), and recently became the first member of the U. S. Congress to publish a graphic novel,March: Book One, which he co-authored.

Cafe Science: They're Here! Designing Antibiotics for Emerging Pathogens
Monday, June 2, 2014, 6 – 7 p.m.

Location: Solea, 388 Moody St., Waltham

Liz Hedstrom, PhD'86, Professor of Biology, Brandeis University

Although infectious diseases posed the leading cause of death at the turn of the 20th century, antibiotics such as penicillin have kept them in check for nearly half a century. Now the emergence of antibiotic-resistance pathogens poses a new and growing threat to public health.

In her talk, Hedstrom will describe how her laboratory's work on Cryptosporidium, a waterborne pathogen (and potential bioterrorism agent), is leading to new compounds that can effectively block its action.

Sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Division of Science.

Tickets: $10.00 admission at the door includes 1 drink per person.
