A great article on Sustainable Health Care by Transition Los Angeles' Anneke Campbell grabbed the front page of LA Yoga Magazine's March 2010 issue.

The article considers which health care modalities might be sustainable into a resource-limited future. It also announces Transition Mar Vista's "Sustainable Health Care" event coming up on March 20.
