Overview

Global Climate Change and Emerging Infectious Disease

This is the fourth of a series of public events organized by the Ethics Center and six regional colleges and universities to mark the 50th anniversary of Silent Spring by bringing the public, scientists and university students together to explore how science can best serve society.

Human activities have exerted a powerful influence that has altered our global climate. These changes can make it difficult for organisms to survive in the regions they now inhabit and thus cause shifts in the natural habitats of animals and plants. Climate change influences the emergence and spread of many infectious diseases. Please join us for this discussion about what may lie ahead for us, and what might be done to reduce the impact of impending changes.
