2019 Water & Health in Rural China & Appalachia Conference

A Conference & Working Sessions to Promote Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration

The goal of this conference was to connect VT faculty and students with researchers and officials from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention and UC Berkeley in order to share past/present/planned research relevant to low-income settings in rural Appalachia and China. The conference and attendant working sessions (held before and after) also served as a forum for officially expanding the previously named Berkeley/China-CDC Program for Water & Health to Virginia Tech, as well as a planning platform for new collaborative projects. 

Please see the website for our newly expanded program: The Berkeley/China/Virginia Tech Program for Water & Health.

When: Friday, October 4th, 2019, from 9am-5pm.

Where: The Skelton Conference Center, at the Inn at Virginia Tech.

Support: CVM/PHS, Global Change Center, Fralin LSI, the Virginia Water Center, and the Inn at VT are sponsors of this event.
