Exploring the dynamic relationship between health and environment
Date:3/23/2009

cs as a tool for understanding the environmental context of health.

The second session will explore how multiple stressors interact and affect public health and the environment. Donna Green of the Climate Change Research Centre, University of New South Wales, will discuss the impacts of climate change on the physical and mental health of indigenous Australians; Camille Parmesan of the University of Texas at Austin will address the impact of climate change on wildlife and the consequential links to human health; and Pim Martens of the International Centre for Integrated Assessment and Sustainable Development at Maastricht University in the Netherlands will look at the health effects of global trade and travel.

Discussion will then shift to how choices and decisions can be made when both human and environmental health are at stake. Andrew P. Dobson, Princeton University, will talk about the connections among biodiversity, disease transmission, and human health. This keynote will lead into talks by Michael J. Balick (New York Botanical Gardens), Patrick L. Kinney (Columbia University), Pablo Bernardo Eyzaguirre (Bioversity International), and Gary W. Yohe (Wesleyan University). Lora Fleming (Miller School of Medicine and Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, Miami), Pim Martens, Kent H. Redford (Wildlife Conservation Society), and William Sullivan (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) will then contribute to a panel to discuss situations in which policy making can result in mutual benefits for health and the environment.

On Friday morning, the value of genomic research in investigating evolutionary patterns of pathogens takes center stage in a discussion that includes experts in epidemiology, pathogen surveillance and monitoring, and phylogenetics. Confirmed speakers and panelists include Martin Blaser, New York University Langone Medical Center; Rob DeSalle, Division of Invertebrate Zoology, American Museum of Natural
