Global Climate Change and Human Health: From Science to Practice

Payne Institute Fellow Dr. Jay Lemery, Dr. Cecilia Sorensen, and Dr. Kim Knowlton write the second edition of their acclaimed textbook that delivers an accessible and complete treatment of the impact of the world’s changing climate on human health and disease. In their discussions of this crucial and timely topic, the distinguished authors discuss topics like heat stress, dyspnea resulting from degraded air quality, fevers from vector-borne diseases, mental health stressors, and the critical issue of climate justice and disproportionate impacts upon the most vulnerable citizens and communities.  May 11, 2021.
