    Hello Snyanzi, I am a Medical Anthropologist working, teaching, and advocating for women's reproductive health and human rights.

    I will go to Kampala May 16. The first week, I will be working with the Makerere University, and after that with the Family Planning Association of Uganda.

    This would be a great opportunity for me to meet you in person and chat about our own interests. Our profiles have many things in common.

    Let me know, please, if you are willing to meet with me. It would be just WONDERFUL!

    Peace and joy. Araceli
