The featured speakers are Sohyun Park, Assistant Professor at University of Connecticut College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources, Jose Amador, Professor at University of Rhode Island College of the Environment and Life Sciences, Roger Wolfe, Mosquito Management Coordinator at CT DEEP Wetland Habitat & Mosquito Management, and Michael Pascucilla, Director of Health at East Shore District Health Department.
