Public Health Impacts: Climate Change (P8304) Columbia Only

Course lecture recordings for spring 2007. Instructor: Dr. Kim Knowlton

The possible impact of climate change on public health is an area of growing significance and rapidly expanding research. Identifying, understanding, and predicting public health impacts draws upon a range of disciplines including atmospheric sciences, climate modeling, epidemiology, ecology, risk assessment, and public policy. Readings will cover a diverse range of topics and include extensive web-based data searches. The class will be run in a seminar-style format: intro topic briefing followed by student-led discussion & critique of relevant papers & news items. For the final project, climate-health projects will be developed and presented in class by small groups of students. Guest speakers who are experts in the multiple disciplines that inform climate-health impacts will be invited to speak throughout the semester.
