Mayor Peduto Meets with the Dalai Lama

 

Mayor William Peduto met yesterday with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala, India.

The Mayor joined Manchester Craftsmen's Guild founder Bill Strickland, Chicago businessman Steve Sarowitz and UPMC senior vice president Scott Lammie for the 10 a.m. meeting, after receiving an invitation from Dr. Barry Kerzin, the Dalai Lama's personal physician.

Dr Kerzin has been working in Pittsburgh with UPMC to train nurses in wellness and mindfulness for both themselves and patients. Mayor Peduto and the City of Pittsburgh are looking at offering the training to city youth and seniors with Dr Kerzin's assistance.

The Manchester Craftsmen's Guild operates in 12 cities around the world and Strickland is seeking additional global partners to expand his Pittsburgh model of opportunity to at-risk youth everywhere.  
 

The Mayor is paying all his expenses personally during this private vacation.
