Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hey guys!

My name is Zack, and I'm absolutely psyched to be teaching with Columbia Splash. I'm originally from Sanford, NC, but I went to high school right up the street from Duke, in Durham, at the NC School of Science and Math. I'm a double major at Duke University in Global Health and Cultural Anthropology and I'm particularly interested in health disparities, gender equality, HIV/AIDS prevention, education, and human rights issues. I'm also a huge theater geek, and I've been performing since I was eleven years old. As always, I'm thrilled to be a part of any Splash, and I hope to see you in a class or two!

S137: HIV/AIDS: The Global Elephant in the Room in Splash Fall 2013 (Nov. 16, 2013)
This class will examine and explore some of the most shockingly upsetting and encouraging stories based on the spread of the HIV/AIDS epidemic around the world. We’ll be watching clips from a fantastic movie ("And the Band Played On") as well as trying to answer the most critical questions of all: Where did HIV/AIDS come from? Could we have stopped this, and how? What can we do now? All of these questions will be answered from both a social and scientific approach. Come ready to have mind blowing realizations!
