Monday Mission, 8/31/09
Later this week, Dr. Ami Teague of the McWhorter School of Pharmacy, along with two students—Margaret Davis and Meghan Merriss—will arrive in Lusaka at the University of Zambia. An HIV expert, Dr. Teague will explore current efforts to combat HIV in Zambia. Margaret and Meghan will gain first-hand information on the ways in which pharmacy is practiced there. Collaborative relationships will develop, leading to additional learning opportunities for students and faculty at Samford and the University of Zambia.
The world is better because Samford people reach outside the gates of the campus.
