Resistance Fighter: When Grace Eckhoff went to Afghanistan last summer to study multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) infection rates, it was a kind of return to her childhood. Eckhoff, who's now a third-year biology major, grew up in Haiti, where her parents were doctors at a small hospital. While her parents were working, she'd often pass the time playing with the kids in the chronic illness ward, most of whom had tuberculosis. They were being treated there, rather than at home, precisely to preempt the development of drug resistant strains of tuberculosis.
