After their tenure as chief executive of the United States, some presidents retire from public life, some become Supreme Court justices, and many of them continue their dedication to public service. The Carter Center at Emory University is testimony to Jimmy and Rosalynn's Carter commitment to public service. Established in 1982, the Carter Center is "committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering." Specifically, the Center is primarily interested in a broad range of thematic initiatives and public outreach programs dealing with peace and public health. Visitors can learn about these programs within the "Peace" and "Health" sections of the site, where they will find information about their work in combating malaria around the world, observing various elections, and other related initiatives. More casual visitors may wish to just browse through the "Carter Center News" area, or if they are so inspired, they can even learn about internship and volunteer opportunities at the Center.
