Osprey Foundation Gift Supports Clean-Air Research Led by International Health Faculty


William C. Clarke, a prominent Baltimore-based philanthropist, has made a second financial gift to a Peru-based project focused on improving indoor air quality and residents' health.

Steven Harvey, PhD ’06, MHS ’00, an associate professor in the Department of International Health at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, leads the project.
