2019 NEID Giving Circle on Climate Change and Health
February 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
February – September 2019
What do decreasing air quality, increasing heat stress, the spread of tropical diseases such as the zika virus, dengue fever, and Lyme disease, rising suicide rates in rural India, and the decline of biodiversity in ecosystems all have in common? These challenges are all driven by climate change, and are all expected to worsen over the decades to come. This circle will explore the many ways that climate change and global health are intertwined, and seek to better understand how donors can raise awareness and address the health issues that arise as a result of climate change.
