In a recent USGA article, Carolyn Creekmore, a health advocate and a champion amateur golfer shares her experience travelling to Africa to renovate a cervical cancer clinic in Zambia as part of the Bush Institute’s Global Health Initiative. Creekmore, who is the Director of the Bush Institute’s Warrior Open golf tournament, spent a week with a team of volunteers, including four SMU students, preparing the clinic in advance of President and Mrs. Bush’s visit to the site. “What we have versus what they have is startling,” Creekmore says in the article. “It’s like they have nothing. Seeing how happy they are with nothing, it causes you to step back a little.” Read the USGA article.   Additional articles on the Bush Institute’s Global Health clinic renovation in Zambia:
