In continuing our ‘get to know‘ an Malaria Partners International board member feature, we are highlighting the rich diversity of the board and how each individual contributes to our mission.

This month we are featuring newly elected board member Harry Short.  Harry believes that the world-wide reduction of malaria is practical and should be a major initiative of Rotary International.  He has  more than 15,000 volunteer hours helping families and children and still work with BSA and Habitat for Humanity and on many Rotary projects as a member of Seattle Rotary and an honorary member of an AZ Rotary club.  His vocation was international manufacturing and corporate management.
