Two LifeStock Board Members, Drs. Corrie Brown and Tanja Zabka, spent two weeks at the University of Nusa Cendana, in West Timor, Indonesia. They delivered several workshops, including:
● Adult Learning,
● Scientific Writing,
● Wildlife Field Necropsies, and
● Diseases of Local Livestock.
Dr. Putri Pandarangga, Senior Lecturer, organized a committee to oversee the visit, which was sponsored by her university. Some of the workshops were hybrid and completed over Zoom, with attendees from around the country and the world.
Indonesia is a country of 17,000 islands, warm hospitality, and unrivalled tropical scenery. LifeStock is thrilled to be connected to the University and looks forward to more joint programs.
As part of the program, Corrie brought a camera for Dr. Putri’s microscope, so that she could share images across the ocean in

It was a very busy time, and a lot was learned in these workshops.
The Rector of the University, Dr.dr. Maxs UE Sanam, presented a special gift to Dr. Brown, a woven shawl characteristic of the region. He explained that the shawl represents not only a gift, but also a responsibility to always return and interact with the people of this province.
Participants asked us to come back to teach more courses.
