Maureen Ellis, Board Member
Maureen E. Ellis, PhD, joins the RainmakersTV board from the global health field. She worked nearly 40 years in the academic arena — medical and health research — and often joined colleagues from around the world.
Ellis earned a doctorate from the University of Utah in Behavioral Neuroscience and has published refereed journal articles in neuroscience, pharmacology, and environmental toxicology. “There are so many things good for us in our natural environment, and so many ways that humans can damage the benefits of our planet,” said Ellis.
An avid birder, Ellis has tracked the progress of many species and subspecies of birds since the late 1960’s. She notes that the activities of birds are often predictive of impacts on humans in response to environmental conditions.
Semi-retired, Ellis continues monitoring the vast scientific literature across a number of fields: earth & space sciences, environmental sciences, sociobiology/behavioral ecology, neuroscience, molecular evolution, natural resources, climate change, and civil policy.
Ellis added that RainmakersTV is appealing from a number of viewpoints. “Humankind has a major challenge in balancing/respecting our diversity with our absolute need to cooperate within a global ‘on-the-same-page’ framework. The comprehensive coverage of people and organizations, whether they’re working to eliminate poverty, improve health conditions, stop human trafficking, protecting the Earth, and more – all of it is why RainmakersTV is necessary to be a part of today’s mass media,” she said.
