About the Book
About the Author
Kris Holloway served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mali, West Africa from 1989-1991, where she met her husband John Bidwell. She holds a MPH from the University of Michigan where she focused her research on maternal and child health. She has used her unique background in writing, public health, and development to further the mission of numerous non-profits and educational institutions including Planned Parenthood, the Greenbelt Movement International, the Western Massachusetts Center for Healthy Communities, the University of Michigan, and Springfield College. She currently works with the National Priorities Project, a non-profit organization offering citizens and community groups the tools to shape federal budget and policy priorities that promote social and economic justice.
Kris is also involved with fundraising and strategic planning for Clinique Monique, a rural clinic in Mali. A percentage of proceeds from book sales help to fund this growing health center. She is a confirmed Francophile, loves chocolate, and sits on a physio ball while at her computer. She lives in Northampton, MA with John and their two sons (both born at home with midwives).
