Patricia Ogedengbe is granted a Fulbright award that would allow her devote time away from work to collect and assess public education/awareness materials on HIV/AIDS in Nigeria. This project was something she thought of in the summer of 2006 as an invigorating way to get a sense of self and keep her mind busy. Patricia will leave for Nigeria in the Fall, 2007 and return in the Spring, 2008.
