Climate change increasingly affects many areas of our lives, but little attention is paid to how it is affecting our health. Research shows the significant impact of climate change on childbearing, nutrition, stress, and our overall physical and mental wellbeing. Find out why, and what can be done about specific threats to public health, from group of leading scientists from CUNY.

Featuring: Reginald Blake, professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the CUNY Graduate Center and New York City College of Technology; Patrizia Cassacia, Einstein professor of biology and biochemistry and director of the Neuroscience Initiative at the Advanced Science Research Center, CUNY Graduate Center; Hamid Norouzi, a professor in the Department of Construction Management and Civil Engineering Technology at New York City College of Technology and in the Earth and Environmental Sciences program at the CUNY Graduate Center; and Yoko Numura, professor of psychology at Queens College and the CUNY Graduate Center and associate clinical professor at the Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai.

Weekday visitors to the Graduate Center’s 365 Fifth Avenue campus no longer have to show proof of vaccination or negative PCR tests at the lobby desk. They just need to show a government-issued picture ID and sign in at the security desk. To enter the Graduate Center, CUNY students, faculty, and staff are required to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination through the Cleared4 platform. Please see Building Entry Policy for more information.

A video of this event will be posted a few days later on our YouTube Channel.
