Webinar Summary

The National Science Foundation awarded a conference grant at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to professors at the University of South Florida and the University of California Merced. The conference was entitled "Converging COVID-19: Environment, Health, and Equity" which brought together Environmental Engineering and Science Professors and students to present about their various research foci related to COVID-19 in air, water, wastewater, food, waste, and more to promote further convergence to address the COVID-19 pandemic equitably. Student organizers and researchers were a central part of the conference organization and research. In Spring 2021, students organized an additional Converging COVID-19 conference session entitled "Youth Moving Forward" since they saw a lack of student engagement in COVID-19 policies, research, and mitigation measures. This presentation will feature student voices and research including two that have worked on a global dashboard and data center for wastewater and SARS-CoV-2 monitoring.
