Health and Health Policy

Health care is one of the most challenging policy areas we face today. An interdisciplinary group of scholars is currently engaged in research on the ways that public health organizations respond to potential threats to health posed by the temperature and precipitation changes associated with global warming. These scholars are seeking to advance both basic and applied knowledge of the mechanisms that influence decision making among health professionals with particular attention to risk perception and the flow of information. A number of other projects to address this general substantive area are in development.
