Yanni Liang, Occupational and Environmental Health (OEH) PhD Candidate, has earned a Boren Fellowship for the upcoming year. This award is funded by the Department of State and is highly competitive. Yanni wrote: "For my Boren project in Cambodia, I will be studying Cambodia’s official language, Khmer. Learning Khmer will help me develop partnerships with local community members for my research. My research will examine the relationship between farmers’ access to resources through agricultural cooperatives on safety and health."
