Jane's Visit with President Jimmy Carter

Friday, February 19, 2010 - 12:57pm

Jane is in Georgia this week for a number of speaking engagements in Atlanta and at Young Harris College. Yesterday, she paid a visit to an old and dear friend, former President Jimmy Carter at The Carter Center. Jane first met President Carter a number of years ago and they've since enjoyed a dialogue about issues of the day, particularly related to global health and peace.

A Carter Center project that Jane is particularly interested in is the Guinea Worm Disease Eradication Program, which aims to bring an end to this terrible disease in Africa. The Carter Center has become a leader in worldwide peace building,  guided by a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering and seeking to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.
