Clinton Foundation Programs at Work

We've outlined responsible steps for the future of the Foundation, but a call to close the doors on the Foundation neglects the countless doors we are opening to help people live better lives. As we prepare for Labor Day weekend, the work continues ahead and I'm proud to share recent updates on Foundation programs: Combating Prescription Drug Abuse In July, as part of the Clinton Health Matters Initiative's work to combat the opioid overdose epidemic, Adapt Pharma announced a NARCAN® Nasal Spray donation program of 25,000 cartons of NARCAN to community partners, including CHMI. The program, established by the George W. Bush Presidential Center, the Clinton Presidential Center, the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation, and the Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation, is a one-of-a-kind leadership development opportunity that designed a curriculum featuring distinguished administration alums, universities, world-class facilities, and, maybe most important, the records and case studies of presidential leadership. The graduation featured a discussion with members of the Little Rock Nine followed by the Moody Foundation Conversation, featuring a conversation with the Right Honourable Tony Blair, President George W. Bush, and President Bill Clinton.

Storm Spaces

Tropical cyclonic systems are generally referred to as tropical storms. They are better known by their regional names, such as hurricanes in the Caribbean and North America, or typhoons in parts of Asia. They form near the equator over larger bodies of warm waters that evaporate from the ocean surface and fuel these emerging storm systems. Their strong winds and heavy rainfalls frequently become part of our news as they often put large numbers of human livelihoods at risk. They form near the equator over larger bodies of warm waters that evaporate from the ocean surface and fuel these emerging storm systems. Recent studies show that the number of tropical cyclones (as well as tropical cyclone intensity) over the past decades has increased. The colours distinguish the different regions and countries of the world. Densely populated areas in the south-east of the United States, the Caribbean Islands, and large coastal populations in east China and the Bay of Bengal are therefore extremely vulnerable. While being even more abstract than the map over land, here it becomes visible just how concentrated the storm tracks are over sea. Please contact me for further details on the terms of use.
