Barbara Farris is a retired health education teacher who lives in Cache Valley. Until March of this year she was in Zambia with the Peace Corps DREAMS program.

She’ll join us today to talk about her time in Africa, her exciting adventure leaving Zambia and returning to the United States when the Coronavirus pandemic began, and her concerns for her friends in Zambia. Barbara Farris is back home now and out of quarantine. We’ll talk about the culture and current situation in Zambia and much else.
