The virtual programs researched and set up by TTN have been a blessing during this time and truly changed my life.

TTN has done an unbelievable job providing us with wonderful zoom programs!!  It definitely gives us something to look forward to during these difficult days.  Thank you, Lindsay, and to all the people  “behind the scenes” who  put all these programs in place!

I honestly can't imagine the past few months without TTN!


I just want to say ‘thank you’ for all of the work being done to keep me connected. Because I live alone, the TTN events are especially appreciated.

 
Thank you for the sanity that you have provided during these difficult times. TTN has really been one of the heroes for our mental and physical well being.

All these new SIG groups are helping to alleviate my fears and anxieties, as I meet wonderful new women from the comfort of my home. Looking forward to the laughter.

"Terrific! One of the best TTN programs ever! Please get this speaker again to give another tour. Knowledgeable and articulate, she is a mesmerizing presenter! Kudos to TTN for hiring her as a speaker!"
  "The speaker’s communication skills were excellent, including her enthusiasm for the topic and the lesser known historical details she shared about Jackie Kennedy’s background and life. I would definitely want to do another of her presentations. She was great!"

Equal Means Equal

                                          Comments from our Members

"An eye opening video/conversation touching on different aspects of how women are still unequal in the eyes of the laws that we thought gave us equality. Wonderful presentation."
  "Extremely informative and illuminating. Aside from the obvious wage inequalities, many other facets of life impacted by lack of equal protection under the law for women were explored."
  "Very good film.  Time should have been included for recent updates and discussion."

"Very informative. Raised my awareness for some women specific heart health issue signs. Thanks."

 "Dr. Schwarzwald pulled no punches. He was very engaging and his presentation was on target. I really appreciated hearing about the statistics and medical facts that were very specific to women. He really sharpened our awareness about heart health. Kudos to the Health & Wellness Committee for a wonderful Valentine's Day gift!"

 "Very informative! Doctor was knowledgeable and very reassuring. Made me aware that women must be advocates for their own health."

 "Dr Schwarzwald did a great job of helping women understand the statistics, importance of heart health, symptoms, and gender differences in evaluating CVD. Great presentation"

"The information and presentation about this important subject was very well done. As a native Long Islander I really enjoyed learning more and the exciting fact that a Street in my neighborhood is named for one of the underground families. Thank you. "

   "It could have been longer since she had so much more material. Great idea for a future bus trip to visit the sites with guide."

  "I found this presentation extremely interesting...seeing sites from this area and the role they played in the Underground Railroad. I thought the speaker was wonderful and interesting and I bought the speaker's book to read as well. Thank you for organizing this."

  "Presentation was fairly interesting. Fun to hear the history of places that I was familiar with in passing over the years."
