Distinguished Alumni
1995 - Martha M. MacGuffie - 1942
Dr. MacGuffie has been a tireless worker for the war on AIDS. MacGuffie's dedicated a large portion of her time to SHARE (Society for Hospital and Resources Exchange) and helped make conditions in Kenya a little bit better for the residents. She worked extensively with Double Joy Farm, an orphanage for children whose parents succumbed to AIDS. She helped bring clean water and small luxuries (blankets, beds, etc.) to the area's children. She instituted procedures in the hospitals that improved hygiene so that babies didn't die unnecessarily. While she understood the severity of the AIDS problem in Africa, she also understood intimately that the problem existed here at home. She lost her two youngest sons to AIDS following transfusions at a time when it was not known that AIDS could be transmitted that way.
