The goal of this seminar series is to stimulate a conversation on climate change and health by engaging faculty and students from across campus. Understanding and promoting the latest science surrounding climate change and health through this seminar series will be a catalyst to the development of a collaborative research agenda.


Keynote speaker Linda McCauley, PhD, RN, is the Dean of the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing at Emory University and a national leader in the area of research on environmental exposures. She conducts interdisciplinary research using participatory research models to identify culturally appropriate interventions to decrease the impact of environmental and occupational health hazards in vulnerable populations, including workers and young children.
Rosina Bierbaum, PhD, U-M School of Natural Resources & Environment professor, focuses her research on the interface of science and policy, principally on issues related to climate change adaptation and mitigation at the national and international levels. She has served in both the executive and legislative branches of government for two decades, as the Senate-confirmed director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s Environment Division, and in multiple capacities at the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment.
Marie O'Neill, PhD, is a U-M School of Public Health Associate Professor. Dr. O'Neill's research interests include health effects of air pollution, temperature extremes and climate change (mortality, asthma, hospital admissions, and cardiovascular endpoints); environmental exposure assessment; and socio-economic influences on health. She has worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Pan American Health Organization, and in Mexico at the National Institute of Public Health and the National Center for Environmental Health as a Fulbright Scholar.
