In The Shadow of The Mountain: A Memoir of Courage
By Silvia Vasquez-Lavado
Wednesday, June 15, 2022, 19:00-20:30
Please join the Health Team as we welcome the Author Silvia Vasquez-Lavado to discuss her book that transects the FAWCO Global Issues.
Silvia Vasquez-Lavado is a Peruvian-American who conquered the Seven Summits that mountaineers strive to achieve. Truly remarkable about her achievement is how her courage took her from a sexually abused child in Lima, to the heights of a Silicon Valley career and finally to the top of the world with feats of physical and mental strength. Silvia's achievements are inspiring for all who fear they can not overcome. Her achievements are long, her courage is endless and her compassion is inspiring.
Save the date and start reading! Registration for the event will be added closer to June 15.
