Mission Hill Main Streets

Mission Hill Main Streets (MHMS) promotes revitalization of Mission Hill's commercial district: Roxbury Crossing to Brigham Circle, on Terrace Street and Parker Street, and Longwood Avenue to Back of the Hill/South Huntington. www.missionhillmainstreets.org website list most local Mission Hill businesses and institutions.

Board membership includes residents, institutional representatives from universities, hospitals, and professional schools; representative members of business community members. Boston Main Streets has numerous neighborhood 'Main Streets' organizations; MHMS represents the operational attractiveness, safety, viability, and other interests of small and other businesses in Mission Hill neighborhood and tidies the neighborhood for 'Boston Shines' cleanup, and decorates seasonally (including music, flags, banners, celebrity visits, wreaths, ribbons, etc.).

Mission Hill Main Streets strives to maintain neighborhood feeling in its commercial district, where property owners, business owners, and residents take pride in the appearance of their buildings, stores, and homes. MHMS strives to create a physically and psychologically attractive, health-supporting, useful, and strategically integrated (with the neighborhood) commercial streetscape that houses a broad business mix (not merely food servers), where a welcoming streetscape features attractive and creative architecture.

What's Happening on Main Street, a monthly column in the Mission Hill Gazette, updates readers on the activities of MHMS and local businesses.

My goal is to integrate the efforts of MHMS with the deeper and most worthy goals of Mission Hill Main Streets and to maintain the MHMS website in a timely, effective, and attractive manner, integrating the resources and interests of Mission Hill residents and those who use the region for employment, medical services, education, edification, meeting friends, doing business and collaborating in science and politics, and recreation.

Mission Hill Health Movement (MHHM)

www.MHHM.org The Mission Hill Health Movement (MHHM), established in 1970 and incorporated as a 501c3, is a volunteer group dedicated “to creating health, housing and educational programs to serve Mission Hill”.

Our mission in the past few years has evolved from that of creating and ‘spinning off’ services which can continue to function independently (e.g. elderly housing, school dental programs, pre- and after-school services) to a model in which MHHM develops and maintains ongoing programs, including an annual Health Fair and an annual Healthy Food Festival.

The weekly $2 bag (of fresh health-supporting produce) and a loaf of freshly baked (that morning) bread are handed out to Mission Hill residents on Wednesday afternoons.

Mission Hill Health Movement and Roxbury Tenants of Harvard (Mission Park) are working together to bring health-oriented videos to the neighborhood! Films will be shown on the fourth Thursday of the month at 1534 Tremont Street (the MHHM office conference room, 6:00 pm) and the first Wednesday of the following month at 805 Huntington Avenue (the Flynn Kitchen at Mission Park, 5:00 pm).

Mission Hill Health Movement

www.MHHM.org - The Mission Hill Health Movement (MHHM) was established in 1970 and incorporated as a 501(c)3 and is a volunteer community health group dedicated “to creating health, housing, and educational programs to serve Mission Hill”. While here, I helped to set up the monthly (2x/month) educational video series, and I am active with the Program Committee that plans and oversees all the community health programs. We are instituting women's health programs, continuing an earlier emphasis, and continuing to engage local Longwood Medical Area hospitals, schools and other institutions.

My most active roles include: Executive Committee, Fundraising Committee, Strategic Planning, Program Committee, Educational Outreach, Volunteer Recruitment for $2 Bag Fresh Vegetable Distribution

During these past several years in Mission Hill, our mission in the Mission Hill Health Movement has morphed from creating and ‘spinning off’ services which can continue to function independently (e.g. elderly housing, school dental programs, pre- and after-school services) to a model in which MHHM develops and maintains ongoing programs, including an annual Community Health Fair, Heart Health Month, twice-weekly farmers' markets providing fresh but affordable farm-grown produce to urban Mission Hill residents (subsidizing low-income residents with Federal SNAP and state supported 'Bounty Bucks' for Massachusetts-grown produce bought from farmers), and an annual Healthy Food Festival.

Global Health and Population (formerly Population and International Health)

Harvard School of Public Health

My ethics/bioethics position is in Global Health & Population, but I sit among a TEAM of philosophers, IRB heads (MDs, PhDs, NPs) who do medical ethics, analyzing medical and health issues that touch upon whole populations, societies, individuals, and parties of interest, with philosophical rigor. My current work involves grants, conferences, international travel, publications, calendaring, workshops, and more. I had begun learning Mandarin to support teaching and research in Southeast Asia and China, then I began reading widely in aspects of both research and clinical ethics. We interface with WHO and various national and international bodies - professional, scholarly, and academic.

Global Health and Population, HSPH

Harvard School of Public Health

The Department of Global Health and Population (GHP) seeks to improve global health through education, research, and service from a population-based perspective. The 21st century has arrived with a complex set of demographic patterns, disease burdens, and health policies. These create challenges that affect all societies, rich and poor, developed and developing. The department's approach to these problems combines the analysis of population and health using quantitative and qualitative methods, the investigation of policies that affect health, and a concern with the politics and ethics of health and development.

Our ethicists (ethics philosophers) and groups are interested in general human rights and ethical issues in throughout the developing and developed world. We sit physically within a medical ethics group inside the HMS Department of Social Medicine (GHSM); I work with philosophers with a social science emphasis, touching on medical and health issues, including the ethics of research. We interface with WHO and various national and international bodies - professional, academic, scholarly, and academic.

My position is funded by the HSPH Dean's Office. My current work involves international travel, publications, conferences, grants, workshops, online research, ethics coursework, calendaring, and more.

Research Administration

Harvard School of Public Health

I completed the Master of Science in Management degree with a Research Administration emphasis. I earned an A+ in my thesis: The business case for implementing a smoke-free building policy in multi-unit residences.

I have also completed seven (7) relevant certificate programs for work at Harvard in research administration.

I was Program Manager of Ethical Issues in Global Ethics Research at HSPH from 2007 through mid-2010, when I handed off the course to the HSPH Office of Research Administration (OHRA).

I am preparing to move ahead with my research administration career, whether in public health, epidemiology, biomedicine, clinical research, energy, policy, compliance, natural science, or elsewhere. I work on a series of three large continuing projects therein the bioethics area, where the HMS Center for Bioethics houses us, though we are in HSPH,

Global Health and Population: Population Health, Population Ethics

Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health

Because of a generous $350 million bequest, the century-old Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) has become the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health. The name change was rolled out January 2015.

The Department of Global Health and Population (under Dr. Wafaie Fawzi), which focuses on Population Health in all its many ramifications, is now able to continue its broad work in research, education, knowledge translation, and implementation research in global health, population health.

Executive Director

Freelance Editor, English Language Editor, English Tutor, Researcher, Thesis Editor

Self Employed

Copy editing experience began in graduate school at Harvard, where some few actual basic degree candidates from the USA found themselves challenged in expressing (sometimes challenging) core concepts of the disciplines of the correlated professions.

• English language editor and proofreader of academic and scientific articles, theses, and other publications for non-native English speakers.
• Term papers
• Focus argument
• English Tutor for non-native English speakers in business English.

Professional Community Organizer

Meetup.com

Organize topical meetups for Greater Boston area

* Mandarin language and China interest (http://www.meetup.com/bostonchina/)
Weekly Tuesday evening Mandarin-English bilingual chat group with social conversations in either language and 'expert bilingual talk' in middle of the evening.

* General health (http://www.meetup.com/BostonGlutenFree/ and other meetups)
Included health-focused veg cooking classes, juicing seminars, natural health classes, fat loss and weight management, and more

* Vegan and vegetarian (http://Vegan.Meetup.com/23/ and http://Vegetarian.Meetup.com/27/)

Vegetarian meetup is more general; vegan meetup is pickier.

Helping veg*an folks with SPECIAL interests meet MORE veg*an people with THEIR OWN special interests allows them to meet MANY MORE folks who SHARE those special interests and allows us veg*ans to avoid becoming inappropriately entangled with veg*an mismatches who have nothing in common with any of us EXCEPT those "specialized veg*an interests". Therefore, networking ethical vegetarians and vegans allows us, by dramatically extending our social network of veg*ans, to find closer veg*an friends who are MORE CLOSELY compatinle with us veg*ans, and not merely nominally compatible or nominally "in agreement with" us veg*ans.

Picky, picky, but is that not what it MEANS to be vegans!!??

Previous venues, tools, and organizations provided platforms for this same role.

Member, Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

MCPHS University

Represent the general community interests in the proper care and treatment of animals on periodic IACUC Committee meetings. Review, contemplate, analyze, and assess protocols submitted by investigators approximately one week prior to the meeting, examining investigators' claims that the scientific merits of the experiments justify the use of the animals and tht there is no other way to acquire the biomedical knowledge that researchers seek without using animals, and to assess whether and to what extent the animals during the protocols would be treated according to community, institutional, and legal standards (defined as 'humanely and ethically'), and (during the meetings), discuss with the committee the protocols before the committee members vote to approve or disapprove the protocol.

Use the resources of the Committee's librarian and veterinarian, and the pharmacologist who chairs the committee, whose research efforts do not involve using animal models.

Be well-versed in the nature of such research protocols, the nature of doing pharmaceutical science, and the array of nonanimal research models currently available, and the research potentials and limits of those nonanimal research models.

We developed the departmental research seminars and have raised funding for at least one named Chair/Professorship, prepare formal presentations for named lectures all over the world, and mentor faculty, clinicians, educators, administrators, and medical students. In the course of doing my work, I skimmed or read many medical journal articles daily/weekly, conducted research, and helped edit Dr. Eisenberg's speeches, chapters, and articles.

I developed & edited Dr. Eisenberg's Wikipedia page [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Eisenberg].

National "Great American Meatout" Education Coordinator, Paid and Volunteer

Farm Animal Reform Movement

At the height of my involvement with the Great American Meatout, FARM's most famous and at that time most successful vegetarian and animal rights educational outreach effort, I recruited volunteer coordinators for over a thousand North American outreach events (including every state of the USA, every province in Canada, and several Mexican states - and in several languages), where previously only several hundred local educational events had been held, mostly on the East Coast of the USA. By emphasizing the ecological impact of animal agriculture, I also provided a seamless integration with EarthDay events worldwide and paved the way for GAMO to "go intercontinental" (we were already international because of Canadian involvement).

I continued at a volunteer level with FARM after scaling back my involvement as an employee.

Space Planning Analyst

John Hancock

Worked in Space Planning and Management as the Space Planning Analyst. During my first week I discovered the 1993 Hancock Tower fire (yes, a REAL fire!)and reported it, which led to building-wide evacuation of the tallest building in New England. As SPA I tracked the use of all building spaces across all corporate properties, which changed constantly because of corporate resizing, following the introduction of corporate restructuring themes, and I issued periodic reports (developed from DBase 3) to management - daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semiannually, and annually.

Later I worked for Executive Training, which involved

Founder

VINES: Vegetarians In New Energy Sources

The very FIRST vegetarian group I founded (during the 1970s) was called VINES: Vegetarians In New Energy Sources, and brought together vegetarians working on solar energy storage, alternative fuels and heating/cooling, and the like.

VINES was listed in several directories and vegetarian newspapers and also in the Boston Phoenix and Boston Real Paper, which did an interview with me and an article about VINES and The Vegetarian Hotline, which ran briefly from around 1979-1981.

The VINES stationery

V\INES brought to the United States the General Secretary of the International Vegetarian Union, Maxwell Lee, who spoke on different reasons for being vegetarian, though he had been asked to speak on demographics and urban geography (his field() as applied to his observations of vegetarians around the UK, Europe, and the world (particularly India and Asia, where he had traveled). He chose to give a 30-minute canned talk, after which no one had any questions. So much for personally rented an expensive lecture hall.

VINES was superseded by The Seekers, which quickly morphed into The Boston Vegetarian Society. http://www.BostonVeg.org

President's Office

Wheelock College

Served very briefly in the office of the new administration of Dr. Daniel Sargent Cheever, Jr., (1983-1991), who was the tenth President of Wheelock College. Before serving in the Wheelock Presidency, Cheever served as the Superintendent of Schools in Lincoln, MA.

Department Secretary

Fidelity Investments

Supported Vice Presidents and business and technical teams during the early development of discount brokerage, ATMs, and Fidelity's transaction processing systems, the technical backbone of all online transactions - including investment and account updates, and a series of major organizational changes in which Fidelity Data Services was spun off by SVP Jack Nealon to write the DBMS that implemented historic changes in the scale of discount brokerage systems.

Later, I returned to Fidelity and worked with their business proect to rewrite their back-end transaction processing system that FDS had set up. That unit was called FTPS - the Fidelity Transaction Processing System - used in every online and phone-in and mail-in business transaction.

Department Secretary

Fidelity Data Services

Supported Vice Presidents, department managers, programmers, systems analysts, et al. with reports, correspondence, supplies, communications, data gathering, system input. Maintained departmental libraries for FIS, FBSI, SAS. The transaction processing system developed while I was at FDS stayed in place UNTIL I returned in late 2000 and worked with FTPS, the development of the new Fidelity Transaction Processing System, with a number of the same staffers, now senior staff, managers, or beyond.

Children's Program Director

Ethical Society of Boston

Create values-centered moral education curriculum de novo with materials acquired with little budget, crafted around a broad, secular, cosmopolitan framework established by ESB member, Dr. Lawrence Kohnberg of Harvard's Graduate School of Education. Recruit, hire, train, and supervise moral education teachers; organize and defend to supervising Board the content and methods to illuminate various ages of Society's members' children re: nature and meaning of broad and deep topics of ethics, morality, values, social experience, social history, and the array of social sciences (economics, history, anthropology of religion, psychology, sociology).

Our bold, courageous plan to prepare youth to think creatively, individually, and effectively about the great issues addressed by received moral traditions called religions, left questions open for inductive learning AND ongoing research into their depth and legitimacy.

Manager

Yogurt Yes

Before soy yogurt became widely available, while I was still a believer in the lacto-vegetarian diet before my days as a vegan, I was assistant store manager for Yogurt Yes, a 3-store chain headquartered in a toney and progressive suburb just outside NYC; my store was in Boston's busy Downtown Crossing area, across from Filene's and Jordan Marsh, once-very busy department store chains headquartered in Boston (those were the signature home stores across the street from us) that no longer exist..

As I had done in a number of chain restaurants, I ordered food and supplies, hired and managed staff, vendors, and contractors (including cleaning and maintenance services), did payroll and marketing/publicity, and did overall troubleshooting.

Through the VRC, I have since attempted to "Make Connections for Plant-Based Diets" in ways which includes but is not limited to foodservice, which includes a vegetarian vision of the entire food supply chain and nutritional or nutrient "columns".

Mental Hospital Chaplaincy

Boston State Hospital

Counseled adult residents and inpatients in my role as a low-threat religious counselor, which enabled our building of deeper relationships of trust, encouragement, and support. Conducted nonsectarian weekly religious services. Did case work with hospital professional staff across several types of units, and met confidentially with family members.

Sales Contractor, Solar Heating & Cooling Retrofitting

Solar Resources International (SRI)

Assistant Store Manager

Pizza Hut International (PHI)

Assistant Store Manager - business, supervision, training, buying, payroll, customer relations, opening and closing store, setup of equipment and food lines, food preparation, marketing

Religious Education

Church/Religious Fellowship

Curriculum development, religious and moral education (with a strong philosophical and scientific flavor) for junior and senior high school students; produce congregation's newsletter (collect contributions, re-type, do total paste up, make copies, maintain mailing list in pre-computer era, and send out newsletter).

I brought guest speakers from the sciences and the professions to address my young people's classes on key topics of modernity as ethics, critical thinking, and the faiths in general tend to ask them: health and the quality of life, what is faith, do denominations and their faiths and peoples always think the same way about issues if they stay around in the congregations, what about the marginalized in society, how and why do advantaged and high-performing professionals bend their strategic energies towards social betterment if it costs them personally to do so, etc.?

I reviewed several books in scholarly journals, served as Religious Education Director in a local congregation, where I developed curriculum materials for the junior and senior high school students ("What in heaven's name is religion?" was the theme, in which pre-college students were introduced to the diversity that IS America's ocean of spiritualities) and as the congregation's Newsletter Editor. I also started with MY own books the congregation's first religious education library. I was sent on to Harvard Divinity School.

Store Manager

Various Chain Restaurants

As store manager in a number of chain restaurants, I ordered food and supplies, hired and managed staff, vendors, and contractors (including cleaning and maintenance services), did payroll and marketing/publicity, and did overall troubleshooting.

I left this to attend graduate school at Harvard, where I became vegetarian. I explored restaurant management again several times as a vegetarian in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but abandoned that for a stint in financial services.

Although I had an intermittent culinary career which included institutional and hotel food service, without being a vegetarian pathbreaker in this area, I couldn't forge a visionary future in vegetarian food services, as others have since done.

Through the VRC, I have since attempted to "Make Connections for Plant-Based Diets" in ways which includes but is not limited to foodservice, which includes a vegetarian vision of the entire food supply chain and nutritional or nutrient "columns".

Assistant Store Manager

Restaurant

Assistant Store Manager; Culinary

Assistant Store Manager

Restaurant

I opened and closed restaurants, hired and supervised restaurant staff at all levels; calculated food costs; budgeted and advertised; ordered and received food; paid bills; provided instruction, training, motivation, counseling (yes!), and supervision for staff members, ensured security and cleanliness of building and lot - and proper, efficient, and competitive business operations, and pitched in to do the work in any of those employee roles (as needs arose) in a series of restaurants: International House of Pancakes, Pizza Hut International, and Copper Penny in Northern California, and Yogurt Yes in Boston, etc.

Assistant Store Manager

International House of Pancakes

During a time of immense social upheaval around the Vietnam War and shifting social mores around personal hygiene and discipline (as well as drugs and sexuality), I opened and closed the restaurant, hired and supervised restaurant staff at all levels; calculated food costs; budgeted and advertised; ordered and received food; paid bills; provided instruction, training, motivation, counseling (yes!), and supervision for staff members, ensured security and cleanliness of building and lot - and proper, efficient, and competitive business operations; and pitched in to do the work in any of those employee roles (as needs arose).

Education

See where I spent time studying and gained early knowledge to prepare for my professional life.

Harvard University

Knowledge and Belief

1974 - 2022 I became vegetarian while a graduate student at Harvard, largely through the influence of (1) the Harvard Hunger Action Project (based primarily in the Harvard Graduate School of Education and some of the H/R chaplaincies) and (2) the various "Simple Living" groups at Harvard Divinity School, who urged us to "live simply so that others could simply live" because "there's enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed." I later became a vegan, but while at Harvard, I managed to attend a Whole Health Expo, where I met Paul Obis, founder of "Vegetarian Times" magazine, and an NAVS vegetarian summmer conference (now called www.VegetarianSummerfest.org). That helped to change my life, as did hearing vegetarian PSAs on the 24-hour news station while I was supposed to be studying late at night.

Social Sciences (pure and applied)

1974 - 1979 Harvard was only then expanding its global scope to encompass all the world's human religions, Buddhists had a Japanese Buddhist monk in FAS, African spirituality was part of balance, Muslims were thought a security issue, and my background in pre-Christian religions and modern reconstructions of ancient religions was beyond what its "core Faculty" did in reconstructing Protestant and Catholic theologies after WWI and WWII. Many students bailed out to careers in counseling, education, academic scholarship, creative business, consulting, and public service.

I reviewed several books in scholarly journals, served as Religious Education Director in a local congregation, where I developed curriculum materials for the junior and senior high school students ("What in heaven's name is religion?" was the theme, in which pre-college students were introduced to the diversity that IS America's ocean of spiritualities) and as the congregation's Newsletter Editor.

Testimonials

Hear what some of my clients and colleagues have to say about me after working together on various projects throughout my career.

Christine Dorchak

President and General Counsel at GREY2K USA

Maynard has been one of the leaders of the animal protection community in the Boston area for as long as I can remember. We once rode together on a bus to take part in a Washington, DC rally for the animals and I came to learn even more about his background and commitment to the animals. He has equal amounts of tenacity and compassion, which has been an inspiration to us all.

Neil LaVita

Director of Volunteers at The Cyber Cafe @ Malden Square

Having been a guest on Maynard's program on MATV, "Monday Night Live" I can attest to his wit and pleasant interviewing style. He has been a great help to the Cyber Cafe @ Malden Square.
I am pleased to be able to write something praising someone who has done much to help our cause in the past, and will continue to help us in the future. So often, we take for granted some of the things that are done for us. In this case, I hope Maynard will stay a benefactor to the Cyber Cafe in any way possible.

lei hou

Dr at China

Maynard carefully edited the English language version of a paper my obstetrics research team and I had written on Cesarean deliveries in China. He carefully worked over every line of our text, rephrased difficult passages without losing any meanings or nuances. He worked with full comprehension throughout the process and offered some helpful suggestions on the structure and content of the paper - and on the nature of the research we had done.


I found his critical observations very useful and decided to reorganize the paper and to resubmit it for publication in its revised form. Maynard continued to work with me every step of the way in the reorganization of the paper. I highly recommend his work ethic and his English language editing skills

Maynard is one of the most organized, gracious Meetup organizers. He is a great host at the Vegan Meetup events. Without a doubt, Maynard is one of the most "connected" people on the internet. I am in complete awe of his numerous connections and myriad web pages. Good job!

Tracy Murphy

Maynard is a hard working "people" person who seems to be well-liked among his peers. He effectively uses his networking and technology skills to promote causes to support both human and animal rights. Maynard is extremely effective in motivating people to help create change across America and is an asset to our communities.

Maynard is both thoughtful and trustworthy. His demeanor is perfectly suited to solve complex problems that require patience, aptitude and intellect.

Indeed, our society benefits by Maynard's involvement and attitude. I give Maynard my highest reccomendation.

Maynard was enormously helpful in overseeing and managing transcription projects I was involved with. He was always eager and willing to go the extra mile to help get a project out the door. He's offers wealth of information on many subjects and was always a great personal theasaurus when I needed. His warm and friendly manner is unmatched by many.

Ami Sarasvati, CSA, HCC/MC

Director of Business Development at R.O.S. Therapy Systems New England

Maynard is a strong organizer with a real talent of helping new people feel welcome and comfortable right away. He is especially capable of 'working' his events so that all people are involved, yet no one dominates. He invites and authentic and relevant conversation and I regard him highly recommend him in a leadership role as that is his nature.

Mr. Clark assisted me with my transcription requests and was very helpful in resolving technical problems that I could not solve on my own.
I was very pleased with the assistance that he provided.

Tumeria Langlois

Dog Trainer/Doggy Day Care at Sirus Dawg Training

Maynard Clark is a wonderful organizer of his group. He brings great passion, enthusiasm and energy to all he does. He makes everyone feel welcome and readily introduces new comers to everyone in the group. He is a visionary, always seeking to improve both himself and the group. When I first became involved with Maynard's group, it was relatively small. It has since grown to become one of the largest, most active group of Meetups.com. I highly recommend Maynard Clark, as an organizer, motivator, and as a person.

Maynard is a great manager and a great guy. He's one of the few people I know who can make you get results and also be a good friend.

Eric Prescott

For some time now, Maynard Clark has nurtured the Boston Vegan Meetup Group through Meetup.com and, through that, he has created an ongoing "safe" space for vegans and vegetarians in the Boston area to get to know one another. It is through these meetups that I have met many other vegans, including several who have gone on to join my organization and to take an active role in the Boston Vegan Association. Maynard's dedication to facilitating connections is a vital part of the grassroots activism that we activists perform and rely on to stimulate change.

Maynard trained me at the Tape Transcription Center, and carefully oversaw operations. He was the go-to person with questions, always ready with detailed, helpful responses.
