2018 Research Seminar Series

Global Challenges in Water and Health

Tim Ford, PhD
Professor and Chair,
Environmental Health Sciences
School of Public Health and Health Sciences, UMass Amherst

This presentation will introduce the global burden of waterborne disease and how diseases such as cholera are still major causes of morbidity and mortality, although entirely preventable.  Examples from work in Russia and India will be used to demonstrate how most approaches underestimate the burden of disease and prevention fails due to the lack of community engagement.  The principles of community based participatory research (CBPR) are critical for sustainable projects and work on Montana's Native American Reservations demonstrates how community engagement - and leadership - can be effective in creating change.  Finally, metagenomics will be discussed in relation to better understanding drivers of waterborne disease, and some of the promising new approaches for improved environmental and clinical diagnostics.
