From extended heat waves to flooding to drought, climate change is already impacting the lives and livelihoods of Hoosiers. And climate change is increasingly a priority of health care professionals and the medical training community as people are suffering from pulmonary and heart disease as well as stress and mental health issues. This workshop will focus on what we can do to mitigate those human health impacts by discussing the science behind them, the ways that local and regional planning impacts environmental and personal health, and the educational tools that can be developed to frame the key challenges. This workshop will be led by Dr. Gabriel Filippelli.

It will be held in the Social Science Research Commons Grand Hall (in Woodburn Hall) from 9 am to 3 pm with breakfast starting at 8:30.

Participating teachers will be provided with hands-on materials and resources, $150 stipends, breakfast and lunch, and follow-up support. This workshop is generously funded by two anonymous foundations and the support of the IU Center for Rural Engagement.
