Zander Yensan, J.D. of UW-Stout will present Chagas Disease and Global Warming: Future Industrial Hygiene Concerns in America. With accelerated global warming, we often overlook the spread and proliferation of tropical diseases. One such illness that poses a threat to the United States is Chagas Disease, called by some the insect-borne "AIDS of the Americas". By becoming aware of the potential hazards and how to mitigate them, industrial hygienists can prepare early, particularly in agriculture and construction.
UMN grad students will give a brief summary of their research that has been interrupted by the spread of COVID-19.
Any other students attending will have a few minutes to introduce themselves. We hope this will help with job search and networking in place of a face-to-face meeting.
