Ambassador Discusses Mission’s Health, Educational Priorities with Miami Students

On June 12, Ambassador C. Patricia Alsup hosted a student roundtable with nine visiting students from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. The meeting, also attended by Acting Public Affairs Officer Amelia Broderick, discussed U.S. health and education priorities in The Gambia.  The group was led by Professor Helaine Alessio and Professor Mel Cohen (now retired).  Professor Cohen has been bringing students from Miami University to The Gambia each summer for over a decade as part of the university’s study abroad course, “Health in The Gambia.”  His work will now continue under the leadership of Professor Helaine.
