Before joining the Center for a Livable Future, Ralph served as the Communications Director for the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics. However, it was his work as the Communications Director for the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production that Ralph became aware of the intricate connections between food systems, the environment and public health. The Commission, a joint project between the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and The Pew Charitable Trusts, spent more than two years studying the effects of intensive food animal production on public health, the environment, rural communities and animal welfare. Before coming to Johns Hopkins, Ralph spent almost 15 years working as a broadcast journalist.
