Climate Change and Health: Heat Waves, Zoonoses, and More

You?ve probably heard that climate change will increase temperatures and result in rising sea levels. But have you considered how these environmental changes could affect your health? Or global health? Climate influences a surprisingly large number of environmental conditions which can make our health worse, including heat waves, changes in animal habitats (zoonoses are diseases transmitted from animals to humans), changes in mosquito habitats, availability of water, and frequency of extreme weather events. The Museum's Dr. Ellen Wells, coordinator of the Center for Environmental Health and Human Ecology, will talk about these and more as we take both a global and a local perspective as well as think positively about what can be done! Museum members: $12; nonmembers $16. Limit 25. Naturalist Certificate Hours (H): 2Register online at: http://www.cmnh.org/product/AE51-CL021/ClimateChangeandHealthHeatWavesZoonosesandMore.aspxYou?ve probably heard that climate change will increase temperatures and result in rising sea levels.
