Last month, Peace Corps Liberia completed its last cohort training for community health workers (CHWs) in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County. The training brought together over 42 participants including traditional midwives, district health officers, communities’ health committees, and other staff from various health facilities in Grand Bassa.
Ultimately, my staff employment at Peace Corps greatly influenced my decision to become a Volunteer. In June of 1971, I received my college degree. In July I left for Philadelphia to join a group of other Trainees.
