  • In addition, based on discussions with American Peace Core volunteers, the incidence of respiratory problems was common for many of the children due to the cold conditions they face on a daily basis. (Montana State University)

  • During this time period he spent 2 years in the Peace Core in Dowa, Malawi, Africa working on the Malawi Public Health Project and 10 years later served as a staff physician on the Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Project Ocean Search Wuvulu Island, Papua New Guinea.
