NORVA was grateful for the 18 Peace Corps Volunteers who attended on Oct 24th to listen to a talk by RPCV Vicki Tifft's at Le Petit Triangle in Ohio City. Vicki discussed her prosperous research and work, in particular her work targeting a malaria vaccine. Vicki, sharing her story of transitioning home and professional developments, inspired dinner discussions ranging from government funding to global health to entrepreneurship.
We look forward to the next speaker series event sometime in January (specific date TBD) when current (pending the November election) City Councilman of Ward 14, Brian Cummins, will share his transitions from Peace Corps into a career of community development as an elected government official. We hope to see you there!
