Why climate change is worsening public health problems

January 25, 2018  |  The Conversation

The Dickey Center's Global Health Initiative Program Manager Anne Sosin and Dartmouth Assistant Professor of Anthropology Chelsey Kivland published an article in "The Conversation" online about the effects of climate change on public health worldwide. 

“We believe that leaders must recognize that environmental policy is health policy. Rollbacks of environmental regulations will cause far greater consequences on health, in the U.S. and globally, than any health care bill.”

They describe the burden of climate change on communities in Haiti and Puerto Rico in particular.
