Chair - Dr. Robert Townsend
The Public health committee is chaired by Dr. Robert Townsend. This committee addresses issues important to the health of communities in Africa. In some of these rural communities, there is tremendous need for community primary care medical services. In these communities effective and efficient medical care can be delivered by focusing on the common medical conditions including malaria, arthritis, high blood pressure and gastroenteritis/diarrhea. Access to clean water is a vital resource that will help with ensuring the health of children and their parents.
