PERSS RELEASE, Albert Schweitzer – An Adventurer for Humanity
Praise for Albert Schweitzer – An Adventurer for Humanity by Harold E. Robles
“The contributions of Albert Schweitzer did not end with his death. The inspiration of his work will ripple on through mentees, generation after generation, for as long as humanity exists. Reading Dr. Albert Schweitzer’s book Out of My Life and Thought while in a body cast at age fifteen not only helped me to develop a life philosophy—it also kindled an interest in both medicine and Africa.
I welcome the re-publication of Albert Schweitzer: An Adventurer for Humanity by my dear friend Harold Robles, an exemplar of Dr. Schweitzer’s concept of Reverence for Life. Harold has been a blessing for a new generation.”
Dr. William Foege, recipient of the first Thomas Francis, Jr. Medal in Global Public Health, pioneered a successful strategy to eradicate smallpox in the 1970s. He is the former Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Carter Center, and is a senior advisor to Bill and Melinda Gates. In 2012, President Barack Obama honored Dr. Foege with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
