Undergraduate Research Club meeting
February 26 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The Undergraduate Research Club hosts Dr. Kathy Beerman, professor and researcher in the School of Biological Sciences, for a presentation on her research and volunteer efforts in Guatemala. Beerman volunteers with Hearts in Motion on a project to prevent human anemia, and works with WSU student volunteers who spend 10 days helping assess iron levels of rural inhabitants.To boost families’ level of iron in their diets, an “iron fish” is provided to “cook” in boiling water or foods. The metallic ingot lasts for about five years, and helps provide around 90 percent of individuals’ daily iron requirements. Prior to her current SBS role, she was part of the Dept. of Food Science and Human Nutrition for several years. Read more about her at https://sbs.wsu.edu/kathy-beerman/.
