Description

Sten Vermund, MD, PhD, Dean & Anna M.R. Lauder Professor of Public Health; Professor of Pediatrics, Yale School of Medicine

Threats to human welfare can be emergent and acute or they can be longer-term and chronic. A timely and effective response is needed in either case. Examples of an acute challenge is the current global coronavirus pandemic, while a chronic challenge is global climate change. Join us for a talk and a conversation on the projected health effects of COVID-19 today and of global climate change tomorrow, including how to mitigate them through planning, anticipatory work, and emergency response. Far-flung topics will be addressed, from zoonotic diseases and diet in COVID-19 to family planning and water forecasting in climate change. After the presentation, we welcome discussion of the profound implications for human health, today and in the future, of both COVID-19 and global warming.
