A&S Graduate Works to Combat AIDS in Zimbabwe

<p>A recent article released by the Associated Press and featured in the Lexington Herald-Leader highlights the work of Dr. Bill Jansen and the United States Agency for International Development in Zimbabwe. Dr. Jansen, an anthropology graduate and A&amp;S Hall of Fame inductee, is currently working as a senior American advisor in Africa to combat the AIDS epidemic. A growing problem in both Zimbabwe as well as South Africa, Jansen&rsquo;s group is part of a program funded by the United States which is promoting circumcision to reduce the number of new AIDS cases.<br />

Jansen&rsquo;s work is a prime example of the social responsibility we hope to instill in future A&amp;S graduates &ndash; both to their local communities and beyond &ndash; as they move forward in their own lives and careers.
