GOALS & APPROACH
The primary goal of the Emory Climate and Heath Research Incubator is to identify and pursue climate and health research projects that can have a significant impact on society. We are doing that by:
STRENGTHENING THE RESEARCH COMMUNITY
Emory has tremendous talent across the university working on climate and health research. We aim to strengthen this community so we can do even more together.
PROVIDING SUPPORT TO OUR COMMUNITY
Research partners will be supported through a listserv, regular meetings, curated information about funding opportunities and targeted technical assistance.
DEEPENING RELATIONSHIPS WITH PARTNERS
Our collaborators in Atlanta, the "public health capital of the world," and across the globe are essential to our efforts to make a difference on climate and health research.
toxic chemical exposures
This funding supported a systematic search and scoping review of climate change and chemical exposures. This database search strategy looked for publications that included climate, chemical and exposure pathway terms in human populations.
Personal heat and humidity exposure among HAPIN participants
Ajay Pillarisetti and
This study aims to leverage collected data from the Household Air Pollution Intervention Network (HAPIN) trial, a multi-country (India, Rwanda, Guatemala, Peru) clean stove and fuel intervention study focusing on the impact of reduced household air pollution on health endpoints including birthweight and blood pressure.
Wildfire smoke exposure and incident stroke among older
Increasing extreme weather has intensified the frequency, severity, and duration of wildfire events over the last several decades. This study aims to investigate associations between long-term exposure to wildfire smoke PM 2.5 and stroke among the Medicare population in California.

immigrants in Atlanta and countries of origin
Uriel Kitron, and
Migration of populations from Central and South America and the Caribbean to the United States has been increasing over the past few decades for a variety of reasons including conflict, economic stress and climate change. In order to better understand the role of climate change in decisions to immigrate to Georgia, our team will conduct a survey with an immigrant patient population at an Atlanta clinic.
