Alcoholism can be a difficult problem for workers who are far from home, in a strange and often hostile environment, and with little work. On February 22, 2016, CoFiA member Anali King spoke to the lunch guests and offered practical tips for how to deal with the problem. Anali is a long-time member of CoFiA and is now completing her nursing studies. She is doing a project on alcoholism in immigrant populations and brought an excellent brochure she has prepared, in Spanish and English, that summarizes the points she made in the presentation. Since she is bilingual and very familiar with the culture of Guatemala, having lived there for nine years, she was able to connect very directly with the workers.
Thank you, Anali! We look forward to another presentation on March 7, and to continuing to work together in the future.
