For years, Scott Frey, professor of sociology and co-director of the Center for the Study of Social Justice, has traveled the world in the name of health.
In November 2015, Frey presented a paper on cross-national variation in infant mortality at a conference at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow. He returned again in April 2016 to present further findings.
In December 2015, he gave a talk on the health and environmental risks associated with pesticide use in Vietnam at National University in Ho Chi Minh City and traveled to the Mekong Delta region to discuss climate change with local officials.
He also met with officials at Royal University in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, regarding collaborative research on health and environmental risks under rice and vegetable production in Cambodia and farmer adoption to climate change.
