This past weekend, seven members of our Engineers for International Development team (June Park, Lauren Alger, Jennifer Arias, Abigail Armuth, Whitney Woodcock, Ivonne Renderos, and Anne Zheng)​​ attended the University of Virginia’s first official Humanitarian Technology Conference. The team was able to attend numerous workshops related to sustainability, global water demand , humanitarian systems, and the use of medical devices abroad. Each member participated in a design competition to address different humanitarian problems, and the conference ended with a film screening of Living on One Dollar along with a discussion led by the film’s director, Chris Temple.
