WEBINAR : Health Impacts of Extreme Heat

by Arturo Herrera on April 13, 2020

Thursday, May 14, 2020

 

First of an ASU Webinar Series on Extreme Heat
Extreme heat is a hazard to human health and well-being. The health impacts of extreme heat are dependent on individual coping capacity, personal-to-city-level heat mitigation strategies, and access to cooling infrastructure, among other complex factors. Current and future conditions of extreme heat disproportionately impact communities that are already facing inequities. This webinar will address current research and applications on human health and extreme heat at the individual, community, and city levels and provide climate action guidance to city leaders, practitioners, and the public. Panelists will assess additional burdens and risks resulting from COVID -19.

Join the Security and Sustainability Forum, Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability, and panelists for a discussion based on the latest research.
