7.3.16, The Roots of Service: Where It Begins, David Wurtzel

The idea of service sits at the epicenter of the well being of ourselves and our communities. It is the very wellspring of our happiness as well as our purpose. David will talk about how the the idea of faith and its various parts creates the rich soil allowing the roots of service to grow and take hold, laying the strong foundation of a rich and fulfilling life.
David Wurtzel found his passion for life within the fire service in his twenties, and currently serves as a volunteer firefighter in Narberth, PA. In 2008 he discovered a series of devastating health issues that have plagued the fire service for decades. This compelled him to launch a non-profit called The First Twenty, whose mission is help this vastly underserved population address their unmet health needs. In 2012 they launched the nation’s first ever national fitness and wellness program for firefighter health, safety and performance. They currently serve thousands of firefighters coast to coast including the United States Air Force and are at the center of two clinical trials. David is a member of USG with his wife Muna and children Galena and Billy.
