Building a culture of health

In the wake of an Ebola epidemic, a Colorado native leads a nonprofit as they help build permanent medical services in Sierra Leone

By Caitlin Rockett
Growing up in Pueblo, Colo., with a single mother, Eric Talbert never thought he’d go to college, let alone direct a nonprofit organization providing medical care to civilian victims of war. But, as Talbert says, life had other plans for him. “It’s been a wild ride, as they say,” Talbert says.

February is the relationship status evaluation month. The haunting smell of roses and lackluster taste of heart-shaped candies can drive any single person crazy. Gone are the days of chance romantic meeting stories. Nowadays, a lot of marriages start with a click. According to a 2010 study, almost a quarter of couples, who met in 2007- 09, met online. Another in 2013, looking at marriages between 2005-12, said over a third of couples met online. Other studies predict the number will keep rising until it’s in the majority.
