Alanta Colley is a public health practitioner. She’s travelled the world; living in villages in some of the most remote parts of Asia and Africa, sharing health education on how to prevent disease. In the process she’s also managed to contract most of the world’s least pleasant parasites. Essentially she’s terrible at her job.
