UC San Diego Institute for Public Health at the Forefront of the Global Discussion on Climate Change and Health (November 15, 2017).
Earlier this month, five UC San Diego professors took part in a high level scientific and public policy event at the Vatican, that was co-sponsored by the UC San Diego Institute for Public Health (IPH). “Health of the People, Health of the Planet and Our Responsibility: Climate Change, Air Pollution and Health” was a workshop organized and chaired by Professor Ram Ramanathan (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and Advisory Committee of IPH). UC San Diego Professors Wael Al-Delaimy (Associate Director of the Institute for Public Health (IPH), Bess Marcus (IPH Founder and former Associate Dean for Public Health), Fonna Forman (Director of the Center for Global Justice and member of the Advisory Committee of IPH), and Michael Pratt (IPH Director) also contributed.
Workshop participants included an eminent group of public health and climate change scientists from around the world, as well as California Governor Jerry Brown, Kevin de León (President pro Tempore of the California Senate), and US Representative Scott Peters (San Diego). The strong local representation is not coincidental, as California and UC San Diego have been on the forefront of climate and policy research to enhance understanding of and mitigate air pollution and climate change.
