She began her research by reading Jantsen’s Gift and gathering information from the Touch A Life website. Blair then visited the Touch A Life headquarters in Dallas and set up an interview with Pam Cope and the Touch A Life staff. Blair told us, “When I first met Pam she was warm, open, and interested in all of my questions, as well as some questions my roommate had. She made me want to get involved and made me want to go to Ghana and help!” Part of the class project was writing an article to […]
