GAIL WALKER: Gail Walker worked with IFCO from 1987-2002 as Director of Communications and co-led the 1988 IFCO delegation to Nicaragua that resulted in the formation of the Pastors for Peace project. During her 15 years at IFCO she led a number of delegations to Central America and Cuba and staffed countless Friendshipment Caravans. Gail returned to IFCO as Director in 2011. Under her direction IFCO continues to organize Friendshipment Caravans and educational delegations to Cuba. Gail is also a former community organizer in Milwaukee & Marquette graduate.

OLIVE ALBANESE & ALEXANDRA SKEETER: Learn about the ELAM Scholarship program from the first hand experience of recent graduates. They will be able to share their experience and growth through the Cuban Model of medicine and how that will influence their coming years of practice in the communities they serve.
