January 26, 2014 - 00:35 -- William Jobin

You are invited to join us for an informal dialogue on African Malaria at the Pardee Center of Boston University, 67 Bay State Road near the Kenmore Square Station of the MBTA, We will begin with coffee and tea at 9:30 am. continuing until 11:30 when a simple box lunch will be provided.

Our host this time is Prof. Jim McCann of the African History Dept of BU. Jim has recently returned from Ethiopia where he and colleagues have been conducting field research on agriculture and malaria. Jim is also writing a book on malaria in Ethiopia which will soon be published.

Subjects to be discussed at this quarterly meeting will include Malaria Research in Ethiopia, Aspects of the Jerusalem conference on Malaria last December, and the current status of the US Presidential Malaria Initiative. We will also have time to listen to your concerns about improving the fight against malaria in Africa.

Our group includes people from a variety of disciplines including entomology, history, engineering, medicine, public health, communications and others. All are welcome.

Please advise Bill Jobin at blue.nile@earthlink.net if you plan to attend, so that we can organize lunch.

This is an informal group with no budget nor organization, just 3 years of friendly and informal dialogues on the East Coast of the US. The people who usually attend these luncheon meetings include students and faculty from Africa, the US, and other countries, all with passionate interests in fighting malaria in Africa.
