For SPOHP's Summer 2013 Oral History Seminar class. Marie Francois came to the United States from Haiti in 1997 with her husband and a medical degree. She did not pass the American medical boards, but found a new purpose in activism and educational outreach regarding AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. In this podcast, she describes her efforts to combat many of the myths and taboos surrounding STDs and to organize farmworkers and their children in the organization Students Against Drugs and Aids (SADA).
