TRIP TO THE UN AVIAN FLU PANEL
November 3, 2005
"Reading about the way things work is one thing, but actually experiencing it is something else. Today, I was able to experience how the UN works. I learned so much just by observing the whole process- how diplomats talk, how UN meetings are run, the atmosphere of a UN meeting. These things cannot be adequately learned from a textbook. It was a wonderful experience."
