He warned about the dangers of polluted drinking water, which he said is a serious problem in America and around the world. He recounted a history of unsafe drinking water from a 19th century cholera epidemic in London through more recent examples, such as a 1993 outbreak of cryptosporidiosis in Milwaukee and a 2000 outbreak of E. coli in Canada. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions.
Dr. Morris is an environmental epidemiologist who has taught at Tufts University School of Medicine, Harvard University School of Public Health, and the Medical College of Wisconsin. close
