A group of University of Colorado scientists are taking a leadership role to investigate the effects of climate change on health.
A new consortium, UC4Health (University of Colorado Consortium on Climate Change and Health), has brought together more than 20 faculty members at CU Anschutz, CU Denver and CU-Boulder to study the broad effects of climate change, including waterborne, foodborne and vector-borne diseases.
UC4Health leader and professor at the Colorado School of Public Health, Dr. Rosemary Rochford emphasizes that the objective of the group is not to investigate the causes of climate change, but rather the health effects from it. They are launching education, research, and community partnerships with one clear aim: safeguard human health.
CU’s deep and diverse spectrum of health experts and scientists – physicians, climatologists, anthropologists, immunologists, epidemiologists, pediatricians, geneticists, physiologists, and more – sets the institution up to be a strong leader in the field.
