Seminar: Native Voices in STEM

Drinking Water Quality and Challenges Experienced by Indigenous Communities

This professional seminar series invites Native scientists, engineers, activists, community members and leaders to share their personal and professional journeys, providing inspiration to the next generation of change makers. The speaker series is co-sponsored by the University of Arizona Indigenous Resilience Center, the University of Arizona-Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership, the University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center and the University of Arizona Office of Societal Impact. 

The September 11th seminar speaker will be Dr. Joseph Hoover. Dr. Hoover is an environmental scientist who addresses environmental exposure and health disparities using community engaged research methods and geospatial technology. His research emphasizes drinking water quality and access challenges experienced by Indigenous communities with additional interests in community engaged research methods and healthy homes. He employs a community-driven research approach to develop sustaining partnerships with communities, which includes project co-development and training. Dr. Hoover’s larger research goal is to reduce exposure to environmental contaminants through use of analytical tools that communities can then build on for future efforts.
