A group of Yale and Brazilian scholars are invited to attend a morning session on April 4. The overall goal of the session is to connect and see if there could be potential collaborations around the themes of the conference (data science and modeling; environment and environmental health; health and human rights) between our colleagues at Yale and our colleagues from Brazil. Below are potential research projects and topics where there could be potential areas of partnerships as indicated Yale scholars and the conference scholars from Brazil.
