Yale public health course tackles climate change

February 1, 2017

A unique course offered this spring at the Yale School of Public Health teaches students how to address problems dealing with climate change, sustainability, and public health. Instructed by Dr. Robert Dubrow, students work in teams on a range of practical projects for organizations at Yale and in the local community.

The course, “Practicum in Climate Change, Sustainability, and Public Health,” is sponsored by the Climate Change and Health Initiative, a program that, through Yale’s multidisciplinary expertise and global reach, aims to train future leaders to address one of the greatest risks to public health in the 21st century – climate change.
