It begins! … December 23rd, the day. You have been assigned to Honduras, the Peace Corps Placement Specialist informed me on the day before Christmas Eve: welcome news after 14 months. I would like my readers to accompany me on a two-year journey sure to stimulate a thinking person’s interest. My plan is to blog narrative and one photo weekly as I begin my duties with the Honduras Ministry of Health. As a member of a public health team I will be addressing the issues of HIV/AIDS education and prevention as a Health Educator: estimated date of departure from the U.S.- February 24, 2009. My family is, of course, inherent to all my steps. Welcome as well, the accompaniment of friends, and colleagues at Seattle’s Pike Market Medical Clinic, Swedish Medical Center, HealthPoint Community Health Centers, Seattle-King County Public Health Dept, and California’s Tulare County Public Health Dept. To all reading this blog: Welcome.
