Dozens of students, faculty and staff helped Eastern's African Club celebrate its annual Cultural Extravaganza on Dec. 2 in the Betty R. Tipton Room. Yaw Nsiah, associate professor of biology at Eastern, was the guest speaker. He discussed public health services in Ghana, West Africa, and his native country. "Public health is about the health of the community," said Nsiah. "We all have to do our part in making sure the drinking water is clean; we have good sanitation; the hungry have been fed; and the homeless have shelter."
The program included traditional African dancers; a display of African artwork; African storytelling by English Professor Raouf Mama; and delicious African food. The extravaganza also provided information on community service programs available to Eastern students.
