  • Cool Runnings: 100 Days to the Grand to Grand Ultra

    Jun 17, 2016
    As training for my first marathon begins this week, I remain in awe of David Barnard. With a little under 100 days to go until his journey begins, I am reminded of what training for an ultra marathon and combatting neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) have in common: determination, coordination, discipline, planning, and dedication. These commonalities make David’s experience even more inspiring.

  • How Washing Feet Gave Me a New Perspective

    May 25, 2016
    A few weeks ago I visited Ethiopia to see the effects of NTDs for myself. I also saw the work of the END Fund and its partners, which aims to help control and prevent these diseases. We visited government agencies, laboratories to see the diseases under microscopes, and went out into the field to see how the medicine is distributed.
