Return to campus this spring to join us for the free AHSS alumni reception and John C. Livingston Lecture. Connect with AHSS alumni, faculty and students during the reception (complimentary hors d'oeuvres and open bar). Then hear from Renee Botta, associate professor of media, film and journalism studies, about international health development.

Playground equipment that disappears overnight. A new public toilet that no one uses. A vandalized water tank. What do these things have in common?

They are well-meaning projects in the developing world that failed because project leaders from developed nations didn't include local knowledge, ideas and innovations in the planning and decision-making process. At the lecture, learn how participatory communication necessitates local involvement in identifying problems, brainstorming ideas, choosing solutions and implementing health programs.
