Faith and Health Connection: The Science of Water

“Water is the soul of the Earth.” – W. H. Auden
Join us for the first of four Environment, Health and Faith focused Faith and Health Connection events. For this first Faith and Health Connection: The Science of Water, we will explore the vital importance of water for life and survival. We’ll be joined by science experts, Nicole Esch: Director of Crowd the Tap and Dr Caren Cooper: Associate Professor NCSU Forestry and Environmental Resources, who will walk us through the importance of water locally in North Carolina. Additionally, we will again ask questions about the role of water in our everyday lives; this time within a scientific framework: “What does it mean if water is not safe for use?” What happens when we care for our communities, but not everyone has access to clean, safe, water? What does it mean to be caretakers of our waters? (Remember Flint)”
Partners in Health and Wholeness is excited about this new pilot project and offering the opportunity for faith communities to explore the intersections of environment, faith and health. During this Faith and Health Connection we’ll introduce the team from our partners. They include interns from Shaw University’s Inaugural Citizen Science Internship Program, as well as the team from NC State University’s Citizen Hub and online citizen science program. Learn more about the mini-grant opportunity for faith communities that participate in the pilot. Citizen Science – NC Council of Churches (ncchurches.org)
