The man is non-stop
Melinda and I caught up with President Carter after our foundation’s annual employee meeting.

Jimmy Carter is a master of the second act. He’s managed to accomplish more in the years since he left the White House than most people do in their entire lives.

Students at Emory University love when “Professor Carter” teaches classes on topics that range from political history to creative writing to nursing. He’s a New York Times bestselling author with 30 books under his belt (including A Full Life, one of my summer reading recommendations). For years our foundation has worked closely with the Carter Center in the fight against Guinea worm disease, onchocerciasis, lymphatic filariasis, and many other diseases.

The former president can even list “home builder” on his resume. Last month, at the age of 92, he and his wife Rosalynn put hammer to nail on 150 new Habitat for Humanity homes in Western Canada—an organization he’s volunteered with for over 30 years.

Melinda and I were thrilled that President Carter found time in his busy schedule to stop by our foundation’s annual employee meeting earlier this year. After he spoke to our team, he sat down with us backstage to talk about eradicating guinea worm, his secrets to a happy marriage, and his next adventure.
