Join us for a webinar introducing a new report from University of Wisconsin-Madison Professors Jonathan Patz, M.D., MPH, director of the UW-Madison Global Health Institute, and Dominique Brossard, Ph.D., MPS, chair of the Department of Life Sciences Communication:
Tuesday, October 20
Patz will moderate the discussion introducing the new report, “Medical Alert! Climate Change is Harming Health in Wisconsin,” with panelists:
- Joel Charles, M.D., MPH, medical director at the Kickapoo Valley Medical Clinic
- Pam Guthman, DNP, RN-BC, assistant professor of Nursing and Health Sciences, UW-Eau Claire
- Chirantan Mukhopadyay, M.D., Eye Physician Associates, Milwaukee
- Caitlin Rublee, M.D., MPH, assistant professor of Emergency Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin
- Karin Zuegge, M.D., associate professor of Anesthesiology at UW-Madison
“Climate change is upon us,” Patz says. “It’s real. It’s serious. It’s affecting our health in Wisconsin—but it is entirely solvable.” With this report, he and Brossard connect climate change to health consequences in Wisconsin. They look to doctors, nurses and other health professionals to help their patients and policy-makers understand what is happening and what we can do to ensure sustainable health.

The webinar is hosted by the UW-Madison Global Health Institute, Department of Life Sciences Communication in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and Wisconsin Health Professionals for Climate Action.
