Dr. Wembodinga, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Africa University, flew into San Antonio Monday evening for a two-day visit with us. We met with Dr. Ruth Berggren and various members of her Global Health staff at her office in the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio (UTHSCSA). They gave us a warm welcome and we had good meetings, helping to set the stage for working out a collaborative relationship between the two Universities.
Wednesday, I saw Dr. Wembodinga off at the airport for the next leg of his trip to Oklahoma City, where he was had similar meetings with leaders at Oklahoma City University.
On Friday, Carol and I drove to the Purple Sage Ranch in Bandera,TX for a Transcendental Meditation weekend retreat. The retreat was great, giving us a deeply restful experience in a beautiful setting. We’re back home now, feeling truly renewed as we move into the summer season. The restorative power of effective meditation is wonderful!
