Global Health Tuesday: Water, Women and Fisheries

Addressing ecological realities impacting human health at Lake Victoria

Event Details

Tuesday, September 26, 2017
4:30-5:30 p.m.
Lake Victoria, the largest tropical lake by surface area in Africa, has been dramatically altered by population growth, climate variability, resource extraction and other stressors. Ecological, health, and economic effects disproportionately place the burden of low water quality on women. Jessica Corman, a postdoctoral research associate in the Center for Limnology, will discuss these ecological realities and empowerment of communities through women-led initiatives to protect community health.
Free and open to the public
