Jennifer Peel, a ColoradoSPH at CSU faculty member in the epidemiology concentration, is addressing global health issues through groundbreaking work with alternative cookstoves. As over 3 billion people use wood, coal, or charcoal, to cook or heat their homes, cookstoves are a leading global health concern resulting in nearly 3 million deaths annually. Peel’s research examines the potential health benefits of converting from wood or coal to liquefied petroleum gas for fuel. Dr. Peel is joined in this project by other U.S. investigators, and team members from India, Guatemala, Peru and Rwanda.
