While visiting an aunt and uncle in the exotic countryside of Costa Rica, a young Southern belle from Alabama accepted a ride on the back of a motorcycle belonging to a charismatic local farmer — a ride that would propel her down narrow mountain roads and into history. First Lady of the Revolution is the remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs, who fell in love with a foreign land and the man destined to transform its identity. Her marriage to José “Don Pepe” Figueres in 1941 led to a decade-long journey through activism, exile, political upheaval and, ultimately, lasting progressive reforms. First Lady of the Revolution is not only a depiction of the momentous struggle to shape Costa Rica’s democratic identity; it’s also a portrayal of how a courageous woman escaped the confines of a traditional, sheltered existence to expand her horizons into a new world and live a life she never imagined.

In the thick of epidemic catastrophe, can architecture help to heal? Dr. Jean William Pape, a Haitian infectious disease specialist, believes it can. He has dedicated the last 35 years to combating diarrheal diseases that harm and kill his nation’s poor, and along side his colleagues at Les Centres Gheskio, has achieved remarkable improvements in community health in Haiti and beyond. On Jan 12, 2010 an earthquake rocked the capital of Port-au-Prince, killing over 150,000 people and all but destroying the city’s already weakened public infrastructure. Gheskio staff triaged and cared for thousands of injured and sick following the disaster using donated military cots and tents. Just nine months later, as the country was beginning to recover, Dr. Pape’s worst nightmare came true. An outbreak of cholera swept the city’s crowded neighborhoods and relief camps. Gheskio’s staff now braved a whole new challenge - how to combat one of the worst cholera outbreaks in over a century in a place with almost no sanitation infrastructure. On the front line of an international effort to stem the tide of an epidemic, Gheskio used every means at their disposal to combat the disease, including innovations like world’s first mid-outbreak cholera vaccination campaign. Asking what else could be done, Dr. Pape invited the architecture firm MASS Design Group to help address the underlying problems that had allowed such an outbreak to occur in the first-place.Together they envisioned a facility that would not only create a healthy and dignified environment for patients, but would act to disrupt the vicious cycle of infection taking place through the re-contamination of water by cholera waste. Moreover, it would be built by Haitians using locally available materials, maximizing its social and economic impact on the surrounding community.Design that Heals is an uplifting story about leadership, innovation, and human resilience. As the building comes together, it reveals a powerful statement of what seemingly disparate fields can accomplish when they work together. As Dr. Pape achieves remarkable victories over such a complex health issue through an integrated approach to health and wellness, viewers are prompted to ask - what more can we all do?
