Humanics Professor Says One Way To Start Serving The Valley: "See People As People," Use Empathy

Nov 20, 2018


Thanksgiving can make us think about how to give back -- maybe it’s serving food at a homeless shelter or donating canned goods. But what about the rest of the year?

Listen to the interview above to hear Simmons talk about the Humanics program, and how to find ways to better serve your own community. In his words, it can be as simple as taking a walk and talking to people.
