    Hey Chad,
    I’m highly interested in micro-credit and have often wondered what you think of it as it relates to health issues. Sounds fun and interesting. I’ll see if Bon and I can come.

    I’m very interested in the topics and the idea of linking health and microcredit. I’m planning to come, but will need to leave just before 7:00.

    Thanks for organizing this.
