The panel will build upon the multi-disciplinary students’ work in the Appalachia region of Clay County, KY. Their project addresses the issue of water access, sewage disposal, use of indigenous materials, accessibility, effective use of land, repair and construction techniques, and economy and sustainability.
The panelists will expand on these topics and introduce ethical arguments, historical background, political and economic issues, cultural and social factors, barriers to building in the region, and the value of community engagement as related to healthcare.
