Follow us in the field!

We're gearing up for our next field season . . .which starts tomorrow!

There is a possibility that we may have cell phone access in Nubri! A few villages have either wifi or cell service now, and we're preparing to share the research as it happens!

First up: the comparison data from the Nov 2015 - wasting in children under 2 decreased by 21% from May 2013 to November 2015. This represents an increase in mean weight of about 2.5 pounds. And this is despite the earthquake! The figure below is a dramatic representation of us during the calculations and immediately afterward.

If you want to follow us for updates (when we can give them!) there are lots of options! We will try to blog as we can, so check here. You can also follow us on Twitter and Instagram!
