UNC School of Public Health Student Survey on Health Impacts of Climate and Weather Events
A current graduate student at the UNC School of Public Health is working with a research and outreach team, the Carolinas Integrated Sciences and Assessments (CISA), in collaboration with the Southeast Regional Climate Center (SERCC), to focus on the health impacts of climate and weather events. More about their work can be seen on the Convergence website. We are hoping to expand our work throughout the southeast United States and would like to better understand Florida pediatricians’ needs and concerns related to climate/weather events, emergency management, and public health preparedness. This needs assessment will evaluate the interpretation of what different decision-makers see as extreme events and understand the gap that public health practitioners face concerning information/education, climate or weather data, and tools that would help them in their work.
