Matthew Freeman, PhD, MPH
Professor, Environmental Health, Emory University
The work of the Freeman Research Group is focused on assessing the role of the lived environmental on health of marginalized populations in low-income settings. Specifically, we are interested in the complementary role WASH can play in mitigating the burden of neglected tropical diseases and the intersection of WASH and nutrition. He serves on the global STH Advisory Committee and contracts and advises the WHO on issues related to handwashing and hygiene, trachoma control, and STH control and WASH. He co-directs Emory’s program in Global Environmental Health.
