The Connection Between Climate Change and Health

September 13, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Marya Czech & Dr. Andy Jorgensen

10:30 – noon, Mondays

Sept. 13 – 27 (3 weeks)

Climate change is a very intense topic which finds its way into political, business and social conversations, often with vocal disagreement among participants. This presentation will give background information about climate change, especially those elements which impact public health. The effects of human activity on climate and our role in reducing negative consequences will be emphasized. We will discuss how we can protect ourselves, our families and the most vulnerable populations.

Instructor Marya Czech is a retired professor from the Lourdes University Biology Department and currently works as a regional environmentalist.

Dr. Andy Jorgensen is Associate Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at UT and a Senior Fellow, National Council for Science and the Environment.
