Center for Health and the Global Environment
The Center for Health and the Global Environment (CHanGE) exists to highlight the connections between climate change and human health. CHanGE’s work is ultimately aimed at promoting the health benefits of climate action, including reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation) and preparedness and response to climate change impacts (adaptation). CHanGE also works to highlight the importance of weather and climate in population health and to provide the health sector with knowledge, tools, and capacity to incorporate climate awareness and resilience into all of its activities. CHanGE pursues its work in parallel across all three core university functions of research, teaching, and service.
CHanGE is a large network with an administrative core that facilities and supports the group’s activities and interactions. The administrative core includes the director, founding director and program manager.
