Millennium Fellowship Project: Eliminating Cholera
For my project, my main goal/target was to raise awareness about cholera. Many people around the world still do not know what cholera is and how deadly it can be for people who do not have access to clean water and sanitation. I created posters that were posted on social media and on-campus in order to make sure they are easily accessible and can reach a large number of people.
