Join certified nurse midwife Linda Robinson as she recounts her year living and teaching in Malawi, Africa, during a talk and slideshow at the Jesup Memorial Library on Fri., August 11 at 7 p.m.

Robinson spent the last year teaching midwifery at Kamuzu College of Nursing where she is part of the Global Health Service Partnership, a partnership between SEED Global Health and Peace Corps. This organization sends midwives, nurses and doctors to teach in five countries in Africa to train medical professionals in their national setting, utilizing available resources. Robinson will be returning to Malawi in November to teach for a second year.
