Josephine is schooled also in cultutral and medical anthropolgy, which seeks to find solutions to health problems within the context of local and ethnic cultures.  This is of primary importance to the patients’ outcome, because treatments or advice that contradict that person’s habits, upbringing and beliefs will fail. Josephine is also eagerly curious about the world around her and the people in far flung regions, especially in Africa.  Her inquisitive nature has led her to study African history and ethnography in great detail, with an attempt to understand how modern nations can benefit from augemnting their own rich personal resources. Josephine's training, background in medicine and long experience interacting closely with individuals who are in need make her uniquely suited to help meet the challenges that she saw in Tanzania.
