Addressing Alaskans: Health Effects of Climate Change

Back in November you heard Dr. Jeffrey Demain speaking on Climate Change and the Impact on Human Health – An Alaska Perspective. On March 16th, the conversation expanded to include State Epidemiologist for Alaska, Dr. Joe McGlaughlin and Mike Brubaker, director of the Center for Climate and Health at the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium.

Hosted by the National Wildlife Federarion each physician focuses on a different aspect of  our health and how it continues to be affected by rising temperatures and increased industrialization. With Alaska warming much faster than the rest of the world, all of the doctors agree, our state is an important place to watch.
