Join Us For A Panel Conversation
Hurricanes top the list as the most destructive extreme weather event. Human-caused climate change has the potential to make hurricanes even more damaging. Not only are hurricanes likely to increase in severity and intensity, but they have also been linked to a host of negative health impacts including injuries, asthma and mental health.
Join the BUSPH Program on Climate and Health and Colorado State University for a panel discussion addressing the influence of climate change on tropical cyclones and subsequent health outcomes in the Atlantic Basin and beyond. We’ll hear from the speakers about the changing characteristics of hurricanes, novel techniques in measuring the health risks of hurricanes in different populations, and multidisciplinary approaches to addressing the hurricane and health relationship.
