Seen & Heard

A selection of must reads about Dartmouth alumni making news around the world.
Devin Buffalo ’18

‘Wake Up and Rise’

In a video produced by Canada's Sportsnet, Buffalo explains why he started Waniska Athletics, a banner under which he gathers Cree youth who want to play ice hockey. Through Waniska Athletics, Buffalo also prepares his fellow members of the Cree Nation to deal with racism they might encounter in sports and schools. Waniska is a Cree word that translates to "wake up and rise."

Anne Sosin '02

Policy Driver

Sosin, a public health policy researcher, co-authored an op-ed in USA Today urging New England's governors to implement indoor mask mandates. Sosin and her colleagues wrote that "vaccinations alone won't save us" and: "Indoor mask policies are effective and complement vaccines to prevent infection in everyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated. A randomized trial, policy studies, and lab studies all provide evidence that masks reduce COVID-19 transmission."

Michael Ribero '06

Growth Opportunity

Ribero's new job puts him in charge of growing the Washington Post's subscriptions revenue. In a press release, the newspaper's publisher and CEO s“Michael is an accomplished marketing executive who brings deep experience in growing membership-based businesses.” 

Peter Heller '82

Fact and Fiction

Denver magazine 5280 marked the publication of the local author's latest mystery novel by writing: 

Peter Heller’s new thriller is set at a boutique fly-fishing lodge near Crested Butte, where the mountains are beautiful, the trout are tricky, the rivers are cold, and a pandemic lurks. Heller’s invented world, however, may be more believable to Coloradans than the Denver-based novelist and former expedition kayaker’s stranger-than-fiction real life. Can you guess which of these water-based adventures are true and which are fantasy?

Kate Siber '02

Forceful Change

In an essay for Outside, Siber writes: "Cancer, in all its misery, obliterated my expectations for myself and for what the world owes me. In the wake of those entitlements, it seems the only appropriate response to being in nature—in whatever way I am able—is wonder." 

Alex Azar '88

Take a Shot

In an op-ed for the New York Times, Azar writes: “the reluctance and even refusal of many Americans—including many of my fellow conservatives and Republicans—to get a Covid-19 vaccine is a frustrating irony for those of us who worked to expedite these vaccines... I know the vaccines’ features intimately because as secretary of Health and Human Services, I oversaw their development, testing, approval and distribution from April of 2020 until January of this year. Any claims that the vaccines are unsafe or ineffective, or that corners were cut are not true.”
