Sponsored by MSU's College of Nursing, this seminar is geared toward medical and public health professionals interested in understanding the impact of extreme weather events and warming temperatures on health, especially on the most vulnerable among us. Dr. Ring presents case studies that highlight these current trends. While we're already seeing new kinds of infections and increased hospitalizations due to global warming, the solutions will also reduce our epidemic of chronic diseases.
