Tribute to Dr. Steven Vladem:

Organ Transplant Pioneer Dr. Steven Vladem Honored on Genesis Global Radio

Genesis Global Radio will pay tribute to Dr. Steven Vladem for his devoted efforts in promoting global transplant awareness. A motivational speaker, executive producer and self-help author, Dr. Vladem died tragically this past September in a pedestrian accident. Though his passing was untimely, his legacy lives on. Dr. Vladem turned a devastating childhood illness into a lifelong quest to make transplant surgery available to all those who need it.  His dream has been realized through the Dr. Steven Vladem Memorial Fund, dedicated to the support of transplant research and advocacy and the continued empowerment of disabled individuals worldwide.

After a severe allergic reaction damaged his eye, Dr. Vladem became a two-time cornea transplant recipient, an experience which awakened him to the limitations in transplant availability and the struggles faced by those who need them.  His vision of bringing transplant awareness to the forefront of patient advocacy developed into a global motivational speaking campaign and led to the production of several documentary films. In recognition of his efforts, he has been honored with countless awards from prestigious organizations which include the Albert Schweitzer Institute, the London Diplomatic Academy and the International World Order of Science Education and Culture.

At the time of his death, Dr. Vladem was actively promoting the release of the film Perogi Blues, which he produced along with documentary filmmaker Phil Ranstrom.

In a heart-warming reflection on Dr. Vladem, Christine Larkin, Executive Producer of Genesis Global Media stated, "I had a brief professional relationship with Dr. Vladem and had the privilege of interviewing him on the radio several times. I am deeply saddened by his sudden and untimely passing. In spite of his many challenges, he remained enthusiastic and excited about the projects he was working on, and his main mission was always to help others. He left a legacy, and I will always remember him."

Please support transplant research and advocacy. Donations may be mailed to:

Artist Rejects Patriarchal Society and Empowers Women to Forge New Pathway

Kimberly Berg has awakened the ancient goddess! A male feminist artist, Berg's work challenges the patriarchal system that has evolved to dominate our world by exposing it as a system that is not only unworkable and unsustainable, but also unjust. Guided by the prehistoric record, which shows evidence that pre-patriarchal Neolithic societies respected and honored their women, Berg believes that we are approaching the tipping point of patriarchal dominance as women gain the confidence to reclaim their inherent birthright.  And just to be sure a feminist transformation is underway, Berg has heaved the final stones necessary to tip the scale by launching a campaign to educate the public on the history of women's culture and the factors that led to its unfortunate subjugation.

Berg has recently unveiled The Legacy of the Goddess, a power point presentation which outlines the forgotten pre-history of women's culture and highlights the revered role of woman in Neolithic societies.  By bringing his message to classrooms and community centers across the country, Berg hopes to restore the female voice so that she may dance once again into the wind.

Kimberly Berg holds a Bachelor of Science in History from the University of Wisconsin, with a concentration in Ancient History.  He lives a self-sustaining life of voluntary simplicity in a Thoreau-like cabin, surrounded by the trees and wildlife of the Adirondack Mountains. Without electricity and with only a wood burning stove for heat in this sometimes harsh climate, Berg has forged an essential pact with nature and has learned to respect and appreciate the elements of his lifestyle that have become extinct in modern society. His interest in women's advocacy was sparked by a book written by Layne Redmond entitled When Drummers Were Women, which opened his eyes to the historical decline in women's stature and the urgent necessity that both genders work together to restore equality for the greater good of humanity.
