LSHTM & UCL Malaria Swim 2007
Hello all! I invite you to join me in providing relief and protection against malaria to those that need it most. Sponsor me for any amount at all as I spend Friday, the 23rd of February swimming to raise awareness! It's so quick and so easy! I'd even cut back on Chipotle burritoes if I were still in DC to donate more :~)
Malaria prevention is a particular interest of mine, as I spent the last 3 years in preclinical development of DNA based vaccines to provide lasting sterile immunity. While a vaccine is the point to which I drive toward, we cannot neglect those that suffer from the disease whilst we move along the pipeline! Long-lasting Insecticide Treated nets are the protection needed, now.
