Getting Some Press

News posted by the University of Vermont College of Engineering

Greetings to all!

There’s a great little news article posted by the University of Vermont College of Engineering about my medical mission to Africa.  Everyone should go read it and pass it on, although just a small blurb, I think it captures the story quite well.  Be sure to share the story with others and hopefully this will lead to more press in the near future!

You can click here to read the news article or find it through the College of Engineering and Mathematics homepage.

Thanks again and enjoy!
