In 2001, Brandis traveled to Mali to fix a small village's water treatment system. While there, he met a woman who told him that it would be of great service to her village if he could find them an affordable peanut sheller.
Brandis went back home andthe Universal Nut Sheller. In 2003 he teamed up with a group of returned Peace Corps volunteers to form the Full Belly Project.
He will describe the impact of his organizations products and discuss new areas of interest and innovation at the Full Belly Project.
This event is jointly sponsored by the UNC Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases and Water Institute; and the Office of Global Health and Research and Innovation Solutions, both in the Gillings School of Global Public Health.
