The director of the CDC's National Center for Environmental Health is coming to Portland State University to discuss the implications of climate change on the field of public health, offering a great opportunity for MPH students to learn from and interact with a leader in the field. Dr. Frumkin is a dynamic speaker, and his analysis about the health challenges associated with global climate changes is rapidly becoming part of the official position and thinking at CDC. He not only lays out the problems we are facing, but also challenges us to act now to address the major new threats to our health and well-being.

You can learn more about Dr. Frumkin on the CDC website, or read a recent interview about him that was published in the National Resource Defense Council's quarterly magazine

This event is open to everyone and completely free of charge. Dr. Frumkin will also speak in the GSA Auditorium, which is located at 911 NE 11th Avenue (near the Lloyd Center MAX stop) at noon on the same day. For more information about either event, please contact Pete Farrelly at (503) 358-5185.
