r.i.c.e. at UNC

Written by Sangita Vyas on October 17th, 2014

We just concluded a great week at the Water and Health Conference at UNC! Between the 4 of us attending, we had 6 verbal presentations and 6 poster presentations over the course of the week. We were so thrilled to be able to share so much of our work and to get such great feedback.

The highlight of our week was Tuesday’s side session in which we presented research from the SQUAT Survey and the Switching Study, and heard Tom Clasen’s thoughts on latrine use in India. The session concluded with a panel discussion between Robert Chambers, Oliver Cumming, Barbara Evans, and Eddy Perez, moderated by Jan Willem Rosenboom.

Stay tuned for our presentations, which we’ll put up very shortly.
