Cristin "Cristi" Gadue, 26 graduated from Burlington High School in 1996 and from Tufts University in Medford, MA in 2000 where she studied history and political science and was captain of the women's fencing team. She started out doing clerical work for Management Sciences for Health. But with the assistance of a group of mentors at the company, Cristi flourished, picking up skills and helping to write grant proposals for a project in Afghanistan. She was soon awarded the prestigious Paul Alexander Fellowship through MSH that could bring her to any of MSH's sites around the world, naturally she chose Afghanistan. Gadue made her first trip to Asia in the fall of 2003, spending her first Thanksgiving and Christmas away from home. She was there on a three-month traveling fellowship to gain valuable public health field-experience. At the conclusion of her fellowship, she was offered a two-year position in the REACH program reporting her company's work and communicating their efforts to the US Agency for International Development, which was funding MSH's presence in Afghanistan. She returned home for about a month, sold her car and prepared to make a major move before returning overseas in April 2004. She was soon in Kabul as a Reporting and Communications Officer where she managed internal communications efforts. She worked as a reporting and communication officer with the rural expansion of Afghanistan's community-based health care program. The program tries to bring health care to 15 rural provinces in Afghanistan. Since then she had been in Kabul for nearly 16 months, gaining public health experience. Through her work, Cristi interacted with everyone from government ministers to domestic staff. Among the many things Cristi held dear were music, movies, books and animals. She was the only child of Michael Gadue of Burlington, VT. She is survived by him; her mother Nancy, her step-father William, many other relatives, friends and her beagle, Sebastian.
