Nutrition United! Barnabas is back in Uganda for the year and reunited with the PROMOTE Nutrition team, which includes Dr. Flavia, Dorcas, and Ben. They are doing wonders with the supplementation of pregnant PROMOTE mamas. (Full disclosure: The team has been reunited since June 2012 but photographic technicalities have intervened).
Christina Son (Cornell ‘13) has joined the group. She will be working with Roseanne Schuster to analyze data from southern Mozambique about access pregnant and lactating women have to the services offered for the prevention of vertical transmission of HIV. Welcome Christina!
