Meyer '07 Recognized for Work in Gambia

Megan Meyer '07 was recently featured in The Huffington Post for her work as executive director of A Hand in Health, a Minnesota-based nonprofit focused on providing medical assistance. Meyer participated in the "African Book Walk: A Hike Across The Gambia to End Their Book Famine," an event created by Books for Africa to raise awareness of the lack of education in The Gambia. A year into the project, organizers have shipped more than 198,000 books to the students of The Gambia. That is 20 percent towards the one million book goal. The books range from elementary and secondary school science books to university-level books to law books supplied by Thomson Reuters.
