1989: Immigrant communities and economic development in France and Africa

Problem solving issues that affect poverty and marginalized communities

Maxim Thorne, Esq., Berkeley College 1989

Maxim Thorne In 1989, the full impact of the HIV and AIDS on Africa had not been felt. My research in immigrant communities helped me to understand the need to design culturally appropriate access points if we were to engage in economic development and to combat public health crises.

I have dedicated my life to problem solving issues that affect the poverty and marginalized communities, and the Chase Coggins Fellowship was invaluable in allowing me to achieve my life’s work.
