Dr. John Williams
I have long held the conviction that it is a moral responsibility to share, to the best of one’s ability, education, science and technology for the benefit of less fortunate fellow human beings and our environment.When I met and befriended Dr. Anne-Marie Moukala- Cadet and her family I discovered a common vision of responsibility.
Her mission to partner with the people of Cameroon to bring much needed wellness and healthcare to rural areas of her native country have earned my respect and support.
