More Information & Speaker Bios:

Lindsay Horn:

Bio: Lindsay Horn is a recent graduate of UW's Master of Public Health in
epidemiology and she currently works at the Washington State Department of
Health in the Office of Communicable Disease Epidemiology.

Topic description: Diarrheal diseases are a group of climate-sensitive
health outcomes of significant concern in Mozambique. Our research goal was
to better understand the role that temperature and precipitation play in
diarrheal disease in Mozambique and to improve the effectiveness of
diarrheal disease policies and programs, today and as the climate continues
to change.

Andrew L. Dannenberg, MD, MPH

Bio: Dr. Andrew L. Dannenberg is an Affiliate Professor in the Dept. of
Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, School of Public Health, and
in the Dept. of Urban Design and Planning, College of Built Environments, at
the University of Washington, where he teaches courses on healthy community
design and on health impact assessment.

Topic: As sea level rise associated with climate change makes some
communities uninhabitable, managed retreat, or planned relocation, is a
proactive response prior to catastrophic necessity. We identified eight
small island or coastal communities at various stages of relocation in the
United States, Panama, and South Pacific. Affected populations are
predominantly indigenous peoples, many of whom rely on subsistence fishing
and agriculture. We explored the disruptive health, social, cultural, and
economic impacts on communities that have or need to relocate.

The Center for Health and the Global Environment (CHanGE) collaboratively
develops and promotes innovative approaches to understanding and managing
the risks of global environmental change. CHanGE conducts research and
policy analysis, education and training, and technical assistance and
capacity building, integrating health, environmental, and social sciences.
CHANGE focuses on health outcomes associated with the consequences of global
environmental changes, such as extreme weather and climate events, water and
food security, and infectious diseases. ( <http://globalchange.uw.edu/>

Breakfast Seminars will be held monthly, aiming to grow and strengthen
networks, promote sharing of ideas, and support collaboration across health
and climate change communities. Meetings are open to students, faculty, and
staff across the University of Washington with an interest in understanding
and mitigating the health impacts of climate change.

We look forward to seeing you there,
