  • Public Health

Adaeze believes that the continued evolution of the medical field will come with adequate consideration for the effects of environmental factors on public health. Adaeze wants to investigate points of contact between human beings and their environment to identify the trends of causes and effects that occur between harmful environmental practices and human health. She hopes to apply this knowledge to identify possible environmental factors that contribute to sickness and pathogenic disease in impoverished and underdeveloped communities.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
