|Dr. Tara Creel Anderson, ’03||A note from Tara: I’m currently in Kampala (Africa), and will be going to Bugiri district on Tuesday. I’m working with the CDC’s Waterborne Disease Prevention Branch on a program evaluation, and so far everything is going well. It’s a beautiful country and the group we’re working with (STRIDES for Family Health, http://www.msh.org/our-work/projects/strides-for-family-health) is great. They implemented a USAID/Procter and Gamble funded program in January called Water for Health, which is trying to improve antenatal care and access to improved water (through treatment with P&G’s PUR) in select districts of Uganda. Another EIS officer and I are leading the evaluation. We spent the past few days finalizing the questionnaire and training the enumerators that we’ll be joining in the field on Tuesday. I’m looking forward to several days in the field, and will then head back to Atlanta late Friday night. (Oct 2013)|

|Captain Dr. Greg Reppas, ’08||Reppas sends this note from Italy:
Hi Jo Ann! Great to hear from you! Hope all’s well in Gatorland!!
Definitely keeping busy in Italy. We’ve been here for about 2 months now and have received our car (was shipped), part of our initial household goods and we finally found a house! The rest of our furniture is due next week. I’m surrounded by a dairy farm on one side, a cornfield on the other and vineyards on the rest. BEAUTIFUL!!!
Work is going well with a definite steep learning curve but I’m diggin’ it! I’m heading down to Sicily over the weekend to visit one of my vet treatment facilities and hoping to get a hike in on Mt Edna.
I haven’t run into any Gator vets here yet but Jean Rubanik was here about a year ago (she’s back in the states now). I did just come from a two-year stint at Colorado State University and Daren Harrison (C/O 2004) was in my MPH program…we hung out a lot and watched gator games (he’s still there until next summer). Please say hello to everyone out there and keep in touch! Greg
