September Monthly Gathering – The US Peace Corps in sub-Saharan Africa

Until it is deemed once again safe to return to meeting as a group, Southeast Michigan Mensa will be presenting a series of lectures on Zoom. These programs are “members only” events, not open to the public. Members need to pre-register by sending an email to register@nullcpeacock.us. The event’s Zoom URL and instructions for connecting will be sent to those who are pre-registered, about an hour before the presentation.

Join us on Saturday, September 19, at 7:00pm when our guest speaker will be SEMM member, Peggi Tabor, a certified Integrative Wellness and Life Coach. After a corporate career with Xerox, which included designing and delivering training programs to managers both in the US and abroad, she spent two years in sub-Saharan Africa as a US Peace Corps volunteer initiating and implementing economic development projects. She holds an MBA in marketing and communications as well as a Master’s degree in metaphysical science and a PhD in philosophy.

Dr. Tabor’s talk looks at the current situation in Sub-Saharan Africa and what the US Peace Corps is doing to ameliorate the many challenges facing the people living there – problems that range from systemic poverty to HIV/AIDS. Dr. Tabor spent two years as a US Peace Corps volunteer living and working in a remote village in Lesotho.

Members, be sure to join us at 7:00pm on Saturday, September 19 as Peggi recounts that experience.
