Melody Corry

Melody Corry, 42, passed away on June 25, 2013.

Corry worked as a program manager at the Rutgers School of Nursing's François-Xavier Bagnoud (FXB) Center in Tanzania, and was a treasured member of the FXB center team who made important contributions to the work of the center in Newark and in Tanzania.

Corry deeply valued her role in supporting the CDC and the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in developing guidelines and training materials to support services aimed at the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Tanzania.

She is survived by her husband, Stephan Schwander, her daughter Freia Schwander, and many members of her extended family in the United States, Uganda, and Germany. She will be greatly missed.
