Hello everyone. I am happy to be a co-learner with you all. My name is Iwalokun Bamidele. I work at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR). My current research trust is the survey of diarrhea, malnutrition, fever and their socio-demographic, environmental, human and animal determinants in 3 urban slums in Nigeria. This survey is a longitudinal one and it will involve zinc intervention trials. In as much as I have previously worked with communities, working with people living in a slum is quite different because of the micro-variation in the distribution of the limited infrastructures that exist in a slum.

I am highly expectant of the quantum of knowledge and skill I hope to acquire from this online course.
