Workshop November 9: Climate & Respiratory Health – Focus on Asthma

Climate change is exacerbating conditions affecting respiratory health in the United States. On November 9, Collider member CASE Consultants International brings together climate scientists, environmental health specialists, public health experts, technologists, and healthcare professionals to focus on the impact of the current and future weather and the environment on respiratory health.

Participants will hear from a climate scientist on climate impacts on respiratory conditions, a public health practitioner on the status of respiratory illness in North Carolina and the US, and a technology provider on digital health applications.

November 14: An Evening with Author & Rolling Stone Contributing Editor Jeff Goodell

Across the globe, scientists and civilians alike are noticing rapidly rising sea levels, and higher and higher tides pushing more water directly into the places we live.

These issues are addressed by author Jeff Goodell as he launches his new book, The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World, addressing the coming water, why and how this will happen, and what it will all mean.

Goodell will make a stop in Asheville at The Collider for a public lecture, sponsored by Climate Optimize and Water Infrastructure Group, with books available for sale from Malaprop’s Bookstore. Watch for more details!
