Whats up, DC?! Abts Hugh McDonough traveled to the nations capital from our Cambridge office last week to attend the @WhiteHouses Office of Management and Budget roundtable on #OpenData for #economicgrowth.

One of our #HR #interns Eileen led a Learning & Development brown bag on #Mindfulness . According to Eileen, the key to mindfulness is being in the moment and seeing what is in front of you. This skill is crucial for being efficient in the workplace. At the end of her talk, she took staff members through a meditation to practice focusing on the present. Thank you for a great presentation, Eileen! #LifeAtAbt #Abternship

#ImpactAtAbt The Abt-led, @USAID-funded Defeat TB project supports a shelter in #Kyrgyzstan for people suffering from #tuberculosis (#TB). This shelter is the first of its kind in the country. Were sharing some of the residents stories to illustrate the impact the shelter is having on its community. George was diagnosed with a drug-resistant strain of TB in January 2016. He had to leave his job in a caf in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, and spend three months in a hospital. By the time he was discharged, he was still taking his TB treatment of 20 to 30 tablets per day, suffering from brutal side effects, and had lost 18kg (40 lbs.). He had lost his apartment and had nowhere to go, wondering how he could find a place to continue his treatment for another year. His doctor put him in touch with the people at the Shelter where he has been living for half a year now. Completing the treatment is not optional, he explains. I know many people that have lost their lives because they thought it was. Georges lab tests show that he is healing, and he regained all his weight. Olivier Le Blanc
