UT Professor Kristina Kintziger Will Discuss Climate Change Through the Lens of Human Health Friday, January 26

Kristina Kintziger, assistant professor of public health, will present “Climate Change: Through the Lens of Human Health,” Friday, January 26.

Typically discussions about the effects of climate change and weather variability focus on economic, ecological, or environmental impacts. We often overlook the impacts on human health. Climate change, however, can significantly affect our physical and mental well-being. Temperature and precipitation extremes, severe storms, and sea level rise have direct and indirect effects on human health. In her presentation, Professor Kintziger will provide an overview of these health-related impacts and describe how we are working to better understand and respond to current and future climate impacts on human populations.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, January 26 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
