“We all tend to think about the United Nations and its specialized agencies as accomplishing important work in OTHER countries – combating hunger, peace keeping, fighting disease, refugee relief and so on.  
 
However, the work of the UN also impacts our daily lives in ways that perhaps we are not even aware.  This talk will explore how the work of the UN directly affects and improves the lives of each of us within the United States – from our international mail and telecommunications, to trade, to health, and even to the food we eat.”
