A collaborative food resource for Americans in Dakar

It’s obviously just starting up and will be an on-going project, but felt great to finally get it launched.

His topic was the effects of osteopathic manipulative treatment on the immune and lymphatic system and the whole thing was in French. (And he made a fantastic grade on it.) It feels wonderful to have that accomplishment behind us as we continue to move forward.
