Climate Change and Infectious Disease Symposium
Climate change is having a significant impact on infectious diseases, producing unanticipated consequences for global health and posing a challenge to public health authorities. On October 16, the Harvard Global Health Institute and the Planetary Health Alliance will host a symposium on Climate Change and Infectious Disease.
Dr. Mercedes Pascual, Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago, will deliver the keynote address. Expert panels will address the effect on the range and lifecycle of key disease vectors, and the intersecting fields of ecology, public health and climate modeling.
