UPRM Professor and Project 4 leader Ingrid Padilla recently spoke at the Puerto Rico Water & Environment Association 2011 Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition, held on May 16-20, 2011. Her talk, entitled “Relating Source-Water Outcomes and Adverse Birth Effects” was one of the invited talks of the conference, which was sponsored by the Puerto Rico Health Department, the EPA, American Water Works, and the Puerto Rico Water Environment Association. The presentation went very well and got an excellent reception, continuing the trend of growing interest in PROTECT by State and Federal Agencies. See the conference program here.
In addition to Dr. Padilla’s talk, UPRM doctoral candidate Angel Anaya also won first place in the conference’s student poster competition for his project on ” Physical Modeling of Transport Processes in Karst Groundwater”, supported by PROTECT. Our congratulations to Angel!
