Baylor alumna celebrates 50 years of government service at NIH

Dr. Bettie Graham was teaching math and science in Nigeria during a two-year stint in the Peace Corps when she realized something. The children she was teaching did not understand bacteria, she said, because they didn’t have access to a microscope. If the kids didn’t understand bacteria, they couldn’t fully learn about infections, Graham said.
