VII co-founder Ron Haviv is featured on the latest “A Small Voice” podcast with Ben Smith.

Ilvy Njiokiktjien’s latest work for The New York Times focuses on dementia patients in the Netherlands.
“…Their bus ride — a route on the flat, tree-lined country roads of the Dutch countryside — was a simulation that plays out several times a day on three video screens. It is part of an unorthodox approach to dementia treatment that doctors and caregivers across the Netherlands have been pioneering: harnessing the power of relaxation, childhood memories, sensory aids, soothing music, family structure and other tools to heal, calm and nurture the residents, rather than relying on the old prescription of bed rest, medication and, in some cases, physical restraints.”
