Allison Crimmins, Director of the National Climate Assessment, will be presenting "Assessing the impacts of climate change on human health in the United States" at the Annual Granville H. Sewell Distinguished Lecture.
Allison will discuss how coverage and inclusion of the different impacts of climate change on human health has evolved over the course of National Climate Assessments, including the evolution of how we talk about disproportionate impacts and vulnerable communities. The talk will include an overview of the fifth National Climate Assessment, expected to be released later this year, and discuss why it is important for public health research to be included in national assessments.
If not a CU ID holder, attendees must provide proof of vaccination to enter VEC.
