Patricia Wolff Tries To Save Haiti With Peanut Butter
Patricia Wolff is not a doctor to be messed with -- she's a black belt who carries a stun gun and pepper spray. All three can come in handy in disaster-stricken Haiti.
Wolff, a St. Luois pediatrician, is on the island trying to fight starvation and disease with "medika mamba," which is peanut butter enhanced with vitamins and minerals.
She's also fighting to get more success stories against childhood malnutrition in Haiti to encourage donors to help build a self-sustaining factory that will not only provide the peanut-butter magic, but provide jobs for residents desperate for them.
Read about her battle, as reported by our sister publication Riverfront Times, in "Peanut Butter Miracles."
