Overview

Concurrent with Climate Week NYC, Wiley and AGU will host a webinar on the emerging field of GeoHealth, which explores the intersections of the Earth and environmental sciences and health sciences. The webinar will focus on the effects of climate change on health and society. Journalists who attend this webinar will:

  • Walk away with a deeper understanding of the current climate change trends, how climate change affects individual and population health in the U.S. and abroad, and which populations are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change.
  • Hear about research that explores how climate change will affect human health, and current efforts underway to develop protocols for communities to use in understanding these impacts.
  • Understand the most critical factors in climate change-driven health impacts and learn about emerging topics that are of interest to researchers and important for society.
  • Learn where to find information about current research, and established programs and resources in these areas.

The webinar will include time for questions and answers.

NOTE: Wiley Science Talks webinars are recorded for on-demand viewing.
