How are they ensnared? What are the red flags that might alert us to this problem? Sr. Joan shares where Ohio stands on this issue, as well at statistics for the United States and the world, and helps us answer the question, “What can we do?”

Moe Rouse has led an extremely interesting life. She entertained the troops during the Vietnam War, worked as a waitress at the world’s largest truck stop, danced with Patrick Swayze, and was Walter Cronkite’s date at a black tie dinner honoring Brokaw, Jennings, and Rather. In between that, and more, she juggled at least three careers – college professor, voice over actress, and communications and trial consultant. Then, she traded retirement for a Ph.D. in Over-the-Rhine. For two years, Moe and her charity boutique, Mannequin, were the only tenants on the block. Spend an afternoon with Moe. Funny and touching, she’ll share the takeaways of a lifetime of reinventing herself.
