April National Call – Climate changes health: Dr. Kristie L. Ebi discusses key findings from the IPCC Report

April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

April 26, 4th Tuesday of the Month, at 7PM (Eastern) | 4PM (Pacific)

Climate changes health: Dr. Kristie L. Ebi discusses key findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 6th assessment report

Climate-related temperature, precipitation, and sea level rise can affect the magnitude and pattern of health outcomes. Climate change harms include illness and death from high ambient temperatures and extreme weather events; respiratory and cardiovascular diseases; undernutrition; water- and food-borne diseases; vector-borne diseases; and physical and mental health effects of climate-related violent conflict. Climate change harms human health outcomes both directly and indirectly. Our efforts to mitigate emission will be a key determinant of health systems to manage risks later in the century.
Dr. Ebi will discuss the risks and consequences climate inaction will have on our healthcare system.

Kristie L. Ebi, Ph.D., MPH has been conducting research and practice on the health risks of climate variability and change for 25 years. Her research focuses on understanding sources of vulnerability; estimating current and future health risks of climate change; designing adaptation policies and measures to reduce the risks of climate change in multi-stressor environments; and quantifying the health co-benefits of mitigation policies. She has worked with multiple countries in Africa, Central America, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific in assessing their vulnerability and implementing adaptation measures, including to address heat-related morbidity and mortality. She was a lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 6th assessment report and for the 4th US National Climate Assessment. Her scientific training includes an M.S. in toxicology and a Ph.D. and a Master of Public Health in epidemiology, and two years of postgraduate research at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
