* Recently, the Project has experienced some changes in management. Project Director Roumyana Benedict, who had been instrumental in the Project’s many successes, left CSIH at the end of May 2007 to pursue new career opportunities. Following Roumyana’s departure, Lori Jones was selected to serve as the new Project Director. Lori has worked at CSIH for more than six years in the position of Director Special Projects and Programs and has extensive experience managing development projects. Having worked on the development of the original proposal for this Project, Lori is familiar with the work being done in Guyana. Lori also has knowledge of the Guyana Project partners, and has previously participated in three missions to Guyana.



** At the Guyana office, Project Field Manager Stephanie Brunet left the project at the end of May to pursue new career opportunities. CSIH has identified an excellent replacement for Stephanie in Wallis Sherry-Lee Best Plummer, a PhD in Pharmacology who previously held the position of Assistant Dean at the University of Guyana. Dr. Plummer has participated in many project activities, is well-informed about the project, and is familiar with the many Project stakeholders. With her professional experience and background in public health, Dr. Plummer will be able to provide the Project with a great deal of expertise in her capacity as Field Office Manager and Local Technical Coordinator (the latter with the support of Dr. La Fleur).
