Event description: 

So often when climate change is talked about it is discussed in terms of effects to the natural environment.

Partnering with the Yale Climate Change and Public Health Initiative, this dialogue will explore multidisciplinary expertise on the biggest health crisis of the 21st century. Not only does climate change effect human health, but its disproportionate effects are seen most among people of color and those in lower socioeconomic income levels. This becomes an issue of health, the environment, justice, policy, and advocacy. 

This event is free and open to the Yale community. You can sign up here.
