Organizer

The Trusteeship experienced an unusual and insightful evening in June when the King of Conversation (Larry King) interviewed the King of Being Unreasonable (Eli Broad) at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica.  Dale Franzen, new Trusteeship member and Director of the Broad Stage, graciously hosted the evening, which included front row seats and a reception on the terrace.  The focus of the interview was “The Art of Being Unreasonable,” Broad’s new book (everyone present received an autographed copy).  Asked by King “exactly what this being unreasonable is about,” Broad responded, “It’s asking why not!  It’s when you want to do things that haven’t been done before, that people don’t believe can be done.”  With their camaraderie and wit, the two men created a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for the audience.

“I am cloistered in my medical world. If not presented with a large, prospective, randomized study I question the evidence and relevance of many medical and societal conclusions. The Trusteeship is neither large nor randomized, but it is the most relevant, outstanding and compassionate group of women I have ever met.”
