Uriel Kitron’s talk on the eco-epidemiology of dengue, Chagas disease, malaria, schistosomiasis and West Nile virus is just one of 10 forum presentations that can be viewed here.

The YCEI, recognizing the need for sound science in evaluating the potential impact of climate change upon infectious diseases of humans, held a forum on climate and human disease on January 25, 2013. The forum was open to the public and the Yale community and offered formal overview presentations. Presentations addressed the impacts of temperature and hydrological changes on human health. Climate change effects on vector borne disease were emphasized.
