Dye publishes in American Journal of Public Health
David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics Professor Timothy De Ver Dye participated in a study to qualitatively assess beliefs, attitudes and behaviors related to diarrhea and water filtration in rural Kenya.
The study concluded that novel water filtration devices distributed as part of a comprehensive public health campaign rapidly proved acceptable to community members and were consistent with community practices and beliefs.
