A lecture this month on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus will look at the effect of global warming on human health.
On Wednesday, public health expert Wendy Ring will give an overview of the impact climate change is having on individual and community health.
Her discussion will connect climate change to everything from infectious diseases to mental health.
Ring is a medical doctor who has a master's degree in public health. She was the medical director of a community health center in California for more than 20 years and has been recognized by Congress, the California Legislature and the American Medical Association for her work in improving access to care for the underserved.
Ring is touring the nation as part of a national effort on climate change and health.
