Update on Garifuna Health/Nurse Solidarity Projects

Some of the students from that trip have published an article about their research, as well (currently behind a firewall). With the sexy title of Prevalence of Hb S (HHB: c.20A > T) in a Honduran Population of African Descent, it contains important new information that will help us to better understand (and prevent) sickle cell anemia.
