CC-P® Elective

This course examines how climate change is already affecting human health from the perspectives of social and behavioral sciences, epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, and health services management and policy. Attendees will learn how climate impacts on food, water and air quality, along with weather events create risks for human health. Course content will include implications of degraded air quality, disease transmission and vectors, vulnerabilities to asthma and allergies, and changes to traditional norms. The course will also address the nexus of climate change impacts with other underlying health, demographic, and socioeconomic factors.
