Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Degree in health education, working at CDC in communications for global immunization, primarily measles and polio. Have lived in Atlanta for past nine years with my partner Jim. Returned to Sierra Leone in 2003 for a measles immunization campaign. Heard many tough stories about the war. Found people who seemed traumatized, others very resiliant.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Many beautiful days there; people and times I'll never forget. Only wish I'd been a bit older and more skilled when there -- feel like I got more than I gave. My experience there certainly helped shape my values and interests. I'm certain that working in health education and communications in international immunization stems from having been a PCV.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Others from my training group or those in Sierra Leone in late 70s, early 80s.
