Samantha DeAlto- Peace Corps Health Volunteer in Cameroon

Samantha DeAlto
For followers of this blog, you have likely noticed that the content is heavily infectious diseases, public health and medical relief work. As such, it is only natural that today's post focus on medical relief work in Africa, this time by my next door neighbor.

Samantha DeAlto recently returned from Cameroon where she was a Peace Corps volunteer. As  a health volunteer for 27 months, Samantha educated people on hygiene, sanitation, life skills, birth spacing, breastfeeding, women’s empowerment, nutrition and malaria. 

As you will learn in this article published in the Richmond Times Dispatch, Samantha's experience was transformative and deeply meaningful.
