the African Malaria Coalition Meeting on "Water, Engineers and Malaria"
Date: Sunday 27 January 2013; Time: 09.30 am
Location: Room 48-316 MIT Water Resources Lab, Cambridge, Maccachusetts, USA
The next meeting of the African Malaria Coalition will be held at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to discuss the topic "Water, Engineers, and Malaria". The Coalition meets quarterly on the East Coast of the USA for informal luncheon conversations about malaria control in Africa, and includes university faculty, students and other scientists. Prof. Fatih el Tahir of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering - an authority on the Nile River and climatology of Africa - has graciously offered to be our host for this January meeting.
There will be a short talk by Prof. James Webb of Colby College about his new book on the History of Malaria Control in Africa. We will also discuss current problems of the WHO malaria program. Several doctoral candidates working under Prof. Fatih will talk about their findings on water, climate and mosquito-borne diseases in Africa. The meeting is also open to MIT undergraduates, as part of their January Independent Activities Program. There is no charge for the meeting.
Our Sunday meeting will start at 9:30 am in Room 48-316 of the MIT Water Resources Lab. The Water Resources Lab is on Vassar and Main Streets in Kendall Square, Cambridge, near the Red Line subway station. If you are a traveler, we will provide information on places for you to stay Saturday night, within walking distance of the Water Resources Lab.
