City of Science: Climate Change and Health

Climate change increasingly affects many areas of our lives, but little attention is paid to how it is affecting our health. Research shows the significant impact of climate change on childbearing, nutrition, stress, and our overall physical and mental wellbeing.

Patrizia Casaccia, Einstein Professor of Biology and Biochemistry and Director of the Neuroscience Initiative at the ASRC, served as a panelist at the CUNY Graduate Center’s “City of Science Seminar: Climate Change and Health,” where a group of leading scientists from CUNY discussed why, and what can be done about specific threats to public health.

Other featured CUNY scientists are: Reginald Blake, professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the Graduate Center and New York City College of Technology; Hamid Norouzi, a professor in the Department of Construction Management and Civil Engineering Technology at New York City College of Technology and in the Earth and Environmental Sciences program at the Graduate Center; and Yoko Nomura, professor of psychology at Queens College and the Graduate Center and associate clinical professor at the Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai.
