October 4th – Water & Health in Rural China & Appalachia Conference will be held at Virginia Tech
The goal of this one-day conference is to connect VT faculty and students with researchers and officials from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC) and UC Berkeley in order to share past/present/planned research that is relevant to low-income settings in rural Appalachia and China. The conference and attendant working sessions (held before and after) will also serve as a forum for officially expanding The Berkeley/China-CDC Program for Water & Health to Virginia Tech, as well as a planning platform for new collaborative projects. The Global Change Center is a sponsor of this event.
When: Friday, October 4th, 2019, from 9am-5pm, including lunch (with topic-specific working sessions on October 3rd and 7th)
Where: The Skelton Conference Center, at the Inn at Virginia Tech (901 Prices Fork Rd, Blacksburg, VA 24061)
