Host a PCV and doctor from the National Malaria Control Program of Senegall
Hey BARPCV!  My name is Janelle Kibler and I am a current Health Extension PCV in Senegal. This year I'm teaming up with a doctor from Senegal's National Malaria program (PNLP) to complete the Global Health Delivery Intensive at Harvard during the month of July. This will be completed as part of my 3rd year extension to coordinate a national malaria program, called Integrated PECADOM Plus. Since Peace Corps and other sponsors will be funding this opportunity we are trying to save as much money as possible. The room and board for Harvard is quite expensive for this program and so I wanted to reach out to local RPCVs to see if anyone is able to provide room and board for a month while we are completing this program. Please spread the word and have anyone interested contact me as soon as possible! Thank you!
