The changing environment is introducing new health risks and challenges alongside an increasingly interconnected world. Extreme weather events and warming climates encourage infectious diseases and pandemics to spread, while potentially disrupting ecosystem services and "supply chains" that today's economies rely upon. Panelists will discuss the health and social consequences of climate change and how new technologies enable us to mitigate their effects.
The Hoover Institution hosted a public panel discussion "Health and the Changing Environment" on Monday, April 8, 2019 from 4:00pm - 5:15pm PST.
Moderated by Lucy Shapiro, Stanford University.
- Milana Boukhman Trounce, Stanford University
- Kari Nadeau, Stanford University
- Stephen Quake, Stanford University
This event is open to the general public and part of a series led by George P. Shultz whose intention is to learn from our changing world, to map our governance options in response, and to help structure a variety of efforts going forward.
