VIDEO: Last week, DGHI research director John Bartlett gave a wonderful talk about our decades-long partnership with several institutions in Tanzania--one of our most successful and long-standing collaborations. If you haven't seen John speak, this is a great one to watch--his excitement and enthusiasm about his work is absolutely inspiring. (Also: Don't miss the funny cameo at the end of the presentation!) http://bit.ly/2ho2BTj
