Dr. Karen Davis, Ph.D. founder of United Poultry Concerns, the world's foremost nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the respectful treatment of domestic fowl joins eHealth Radio and the Health News & Animal Health Channels. She also founded the Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos in 2010.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Karen Davis discuss the following:

  • Tell me about United Poultry Concerns and its work.
  • What was motivation that made you decide to focus on chickens?
  • I understand you just did a seminar with the NYC Bar Association on Animal Slaughter and Kaporos – can you give me an overview of what was discussed?
  • What’s next for you and United Poultry Concerns?


Duration: 28:20


KAREN DAVIS, PhD is the founder and president of United Poultry Concerns, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl. Founded in 1990, United Poultry Concerns addresses the treatment of domestic fowl in food production, science, education, entertainment, and human companionship situations. Karen has a PhD in English from the University of Maryland-College Park where she taught for 12 years in the English Department.


Karen’s articles have appeared in The Faculty Voice (University of Maryland), Journal of English and Germanic Philology, English Language Notes, Teaching English in the Two-Year College, and Between the Species: A Journal of Ethics. Her work, letters-to-the editor and op-eds have been featured in the New York Times, New Yorker, New York Daily News, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Washington Times, Washingtonian, Altoona Mirror, Chicago Tribune, Portland Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Columbus Dispatch, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Chattanooga Times Free Press, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, Potomac Gazette, Jerusalem Post, Harper’s Magazine, Atlantic Monthly, Minnesota Monthly, Minneapolis Star Tribune, The Nation, Baltimore Sun, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News, “Dear Abby,” Egg Industry, Feedstuffs, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Canadian Veterinary Journal, One Green Planet, and many other publications. Karen has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows including The Howard Stern Show, The Daily Show, Fact Finders on WB Channel 11 News @ Ten in New York City, 1010 WINS’ John Montone reports/CBS New York, Fox Television, and This American Life on National Public Radio.


In 2011, Karen published a chapter on her growth as an activist, “From Hunting Grounds to Chicken Rights: My Story in an Eggshell,” in Sister Species: Women, Animals, and Social Justice (University of Illinois Press). Her contribution, “Birds Used in Food Production,” appears in The Global Guide to Animal Protection (University of Illinois Press, 2013). Karen’s essay, “The Mental Life of Chickens as Observed Through Their Social Relationships,” is the opening chapter in Experiencing Animal Minds: An Anthology of Animal-Human Encounters (Columbia University Press, 2012), and her essay, “From Animal Oppression to Animal Liberation: A Historical Reflection,” is the Afterword in Defining Critical Animal Studies: An Intersectional Social Justice Approach to Liberation (Peter Lang, 2014). Karen’s chapter, “Anthropomorphic Visions of Chickens Bred for Human Consumption,” in Critical Animal Studies: Thinking the Unthinkable (Canadian Scholars’ Press, 2014), analyzes the transformation of chickens and turkeys into mutilated forms of existence as an endeavor not only of the poultry industry, but as a “welfare improvement” strategy endorsed by elements of the so-called animal protection movement.


In 2010, Karen and a group of New York City activists formed The Alliance to End Chickens as Kaporos (www.EndChickensAsKaporos.com), a project of United Poultry Concerns comprising people who seek to replace the cruel practice of swinging and slaughtering chickens in Kaporos rituals with money or other non-animal symbols of atonement. On October 9, 2010, Pulitzer Prizewinning photojournalist Carol Guzy published “An ancient tradition draws protests” in the online edition of The Washington Post, prompted by the Alliance’s Rally to End Chickens as Kaporos, on September 12, 2010, in Brooklyn, NY (www.endchickensaskaporos.com/101011wpost.html).


Karen's work is prominently featured in the National Museum of Animals & Society’s online exhibit “Un-Cooped: Deconstructing the Domesticated Chicken.” This unique museum, which opened in May 2013 to correspond with UPC's International Respect for Chickens Day May 4, is a treasure house filled with historical and contemporary documents about chickens. Visit Un-Cooped at www.uncooped.org.


Karen Davis is the author of several books including A Home for Henny (a children’s book published by UPC); Instead of Chicken, Instead of Turkey: A Poultryless ‘Poultry’ Potpourri (a cookbook published by the Book Publishing Co.); Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs: An Inside Look at the Modern Poultry Industry (Book Publishing Co.); More Than a Meal: The Turkey in History, Myth, Ritual, and Reality (Lantern Books); and The Holocaust and the Henmaid’s Tale: A Case for Comparing Atrocities (Lantern Books). The 2009 Revised Edition of Karen’s landmark book Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs (first published in 1996) is described by the American Library Association's Choice magazine as "Riveting . . . brilliant . . . noteworthy for its breadth and depth."

Karen Shayne and Judy Pearson who were in the fight for their life suffering from cancer & survived joins eHealth Radio and the Cancer Prevention and Information Channels. They both later launched a movement where women everywhere could feel connected thus launching Women Survivors Alliance.

  • Where can you go to learn more or sign up for the convention?


Duration: 16:22



Karen Shayne, WSA Co-Founder and Cancer Survivor

Karen Shayne has been on “both sides of the desk” when it comes to cancer treatment. Not only does she have 20 years of experience as a healthcare administrator, but she has beaten cancer twice on her own. It was these extensive experiences with the treatment process that showed her how insufficient the resources for cancer survivors are, and inspired her to form the Women Survivors Alliance (WSA).


As Karen wrapped up her battle with cancer, she expected that everything would go back to the way it was before she'd been diagnosed. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case—soon after her treatments stopped, she began struggling with other issues. Rejoining “normal” society was difficult and depression set in. It wasn't until she became involved with Relay for Life that she realized her situation wasn't unusual—that it was, in fact, “normal” for survivors to face complicated physical and emotional challenges with very little in the way of support.


Karen's first efforts to help cancer survivors culminated in a nonprofit named “Billy's Wish,” an organization dedicated to helping children fight cancer through educational DVDs, CDs, and coloring books. These free materials explain what cancer is, and what children can expect from their treatment, all in an age-appropriate and encouraging manner. While she's still involved with Billy's Wish, Karen knew that she could contribute in an even bigger way to helping cancer survivors across the country.


After five years of research and planning, in 2012 Karen launched the National Women's Survivors Convention (NWSC), the nation's most important annual event for women cancer survivors. Participants from 49 states and 5 countries attended the inaugural convention, studying survivor's issues from a broad range of experts and teachers. When it became obvious that there was demand for a year-round presence, she helped start The Plum, a digital magazine for survivors all around the world.


In addition to her roles with the WSA and the NWSC, Karen served as Tennessee State Lead Ambassador for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and is currently as the Survivorship Committee Chairperson for the Tennessee Cancer Coalition. She lives in Nashville with her little dog Marley and in her limited spare time, she is a wannabe pro-style baker and loves to kick back and enjoy the spirit of her musical roots in Nashville.



Judy Pearson, WSA Co-Founder and Cancer Survivor

Originally from Michigan, Judy Pearson is an international speaker and award-winning writer with three published books. Her first two books, Belly of the Beast: a POW’s Inspiring True Story of Faith, Courage and Survival, and Wolves at the Door: the True Story of America’s Greatest Female Spy, are World War II biographies about ordinary people exhibiting extraordinary courage.


Judy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. It wasn’t the diagnosis or treatment that challenged her lifelong positive attitude. Rather, it was the laundry list of survivor ship issues that rocked her. This experience inspired her to write her third book, It's Just Hair: 20 Essential Life Lessons. The book’s lessons are appropriate for any life challenge and was a 2012 International Book Award finalist. Her continued search for a new “normal” in survivorship was what led her to Karen Shayne. And the Women Survivors Alliance (WSA) was born.


It was an excellent fit. Judy had been dedicated to building communities and helping women even before she was diagnosed with cancer. In 2005, she founded an organization called “Courage Concepts,” dedicated to cultivating courage in women and girls. Already an experienced keynote speaker and workshop leader, Judy brought the message of the fledgling WSA into brilliant, sparkling focus.


Judy now spends her time running the WSA and the National Women's Survivors Convention with co-founder Karen Shayne. She also continues to write, advocate for women survivors, and inspire women world-wide with her message of courage and determination. She splits her time between Chicago and at a lake house in Michigan with her husband David. Of course, she lives life to the fullest every day with very little spare time. But high on her list are trips to the gym, long power walks, a great book and a relaxing cocktail watching the sunset.

Where pain comes from, how and why it shows up in the first place with Sharon Starika

June 11, 2014
00:0000:00


Sharon Starika, a movement educator, specializing in the Feldenkrais method joins eHealth Radio and the Pain Management and Fitness Channels. Sharon talks about the definition of pain, clarifying where it comes from, how and why it shows up in the first place - and how you can alleviate pain through awareness and movement.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Sharon Starika discuss the following:

  • Tell us a bit about the type of work you do.
  • You are talking to us about a concept you call the "Pyramid of Pain" - what is that, and why the name?
  • Is it possible for people to have pain in multiple locations?
  • Tell us what happens once people know where their pain is - and the process for it to go away?
  • What kind of movement/s do you suggest to help alleviate pain?
  • Does pain sometimes occur for some unknown reason?


Duration: 8:56


Sharon Starika has a deep passion for running, having been a competitive triathlete for more than 20 years. After a debilitating accident with a semi-truck two decades ago, Sharon’s doctors gave her little hope of ever running again since she had undergone nine surgeries on her left side. Through practicing the Feldenkrais Method she was able to heal herself, run, and compete again.


From Sharon’s remarkable recovery, she found her passion for movement and realized that she wanted to teach others to move with greater ease, comfort, less pain, and to live fuller lives with movement. Movement includes running, skiing, cycling, hiking, or just getting out of a chair. For Sharon, as her mentor and life-time teacher Moshe Feldenkrais said, “Movement is life!”


Sharon is a Guild Feldenkrais Practitioner, with her private practice based in Park City.  She also teaches classes and clinics around the country and offers instructional online classes, local clinics and workshops. Her clients repeatedly comment on the inspiration she offers, and the self-empowerment the Feldenkrais Method gives.
