Crowdfunding Launch and Ice-Cream Social

2:00 pm on Monday, May 5, 2014
Boston University is launching its crowdfunding website this week. Crowdfunding is a way of providing extra financial support to both faculty and student projects, and 100 percent the funds raised will go directly to the projects. Two of the first three projects are from SPH/CGHD. 1) Matt Fox’s project for promoting post-natal care among HIV-positive mothers in South Africa, and 2) Chris Gill’s novel proposal to use photographs of ears to identify infants in contexts where more high-tech identification techniques aren’t practical. Please join Matt & Chris at an ice-cream social to learn more about their projects and to celebrate the launch of crowdfunding at BU.
