The second AgBioFEWS cohort discusses lessons learned from visiting Eastern NC.
The second AgBioFEWS cohort visited Eastern NC this summer talking with farmers, stakeholders, faculty, and extension agents. The goal of the trip was to gain a deeper understanding of agriculture in Eastern NC. The cohort will present on the insights they gained focused on three major themes: land and power, agbiotech, and decision making. These insights will be used to inform the development of the cohort’s proposals.
AgBioFEWS Fellows are Ph.D. candidates across multidisciplinary fields of study collaboratively examining the science, policy, and public engagement aspects and impacts of Agricultural Biotechnology on Food, Energy, and Water. In addition to their primary graduate program, Fellows also earn a graduate minor in Genetic Engineering and Society. Cohort 2 includes: Jabeen Ahmad, Jaime Choi, Salvador Cruz Matus, Andrew Hardwick, Dana Mugisa, Sandy Ramsey, Delecia Utley, and Sebastian Zarate.
GES Colloquium is jointly taught by Drs. Dawn Rodriguez-Ward and Jen Baltzegar, who you may contact with any class-specific questions. As conditions allow, colloquium will be held in-person in Poe 202, as well as live-streamed via Zoom. Please subscribe to the GES newsletter for updates (links above).
