Under the Weather
Think that “climate change” just means turning up the air conditioning? Think again—climatologists agree that the future might make you sweat…or worse. Join our Museum Educators in this investigation of how an increase in the frequency of extreme weather events may affect many public health concerns: drought, urban heat islands, floods, air pollutants, infectious diseases, and nutrition, to name a few. You’ll be recruited by our Virtual Triage Team to view several short video interviews with victims of our changing climate, and then asked to help sleuth out the maladies that have been worsened by local conditions. What can be done to help patients who are truly “under the weather”?
