This ScienceServ explores the emerging science linking climate change to a range of health outcomes. We provide this international educational forum for health professionals, scientists, researchers, community groups, government agents, and the health-affected to connect, share, and discuss evidence-based research highlighting the connection between climate change and emerging health effects. We do this by distributing influential research articles and hosting partnership calls featuring new research and innovative efforts to reduce the impact of climate change on human health.
The ScienceServ is co-coordinated by Genon K. Jensen, executive director of the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) and Ted Schettler, MD, MPH, science director of the Science and Environmental Health Network and of CHE. Ms. Jensen has been involved in work on climate change and health since 2006, serving on the WHO European Region Task Force on Climate Change and contributing to building up climate and health literacy and action in the health and medical community in Europe and internationally through HEAL’s work with other global partners. For decades, Dr. Schettler has been researching and translating the science on links between environmental exposures and health conditions, including the potential impacts of climate change.
CHE does not take a stance on specific legislation nor sign petitions and the like. Rather, we investigate and discuss the scientific foundation for more health-protective policies in a civil tone. For posting guidelines and etiquette, please see our CHEtiquette.
