Planetary Health: Human Health Impacts of Environmental Change

image for event

Ronald Tutor Campus Center (TCC) (Map)

Join Christopher Golden, associate director of the research consortium Planetary Health Alliance, for a discussion of planetary health, an emergent field that characterizes the human health impacts of broad, rapidly accelerating environmental change. Humans have massively disrupted the natural systems of the planet and, consequently, the physical and mental health of the human population is vulnerable to these changes. Golden has researched these themes over the past 18 years in Madagascar, within the context of rapid ecosystem transformation, devastating poverty, significant health challenges and a trying political system. His work broadly focuses on the intersections of environmental change and human health, including the impact of terrestrial wildlife declines on food security and human nutrition; the impact of marine fishery collapses on food security and human nutrition; disease transmission dynamics between wildlife and humans and the potential for the next outbreak; and progress to date in developing culturally appropriate interventions to tackle these problems. 

Christopher Golden, PhD, MPH

The social psychology brownbag talk series. This week we have Dr. Sheila Murphy presenting her talk: Just a Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Messages Go Down:  Exploring the Psychological Mechanisms Underlying Narrative Persuasion

Abstract: Dr. Sheila Murphy and Nathan Walter will present a series of experimental studies demonstrating that narratives or stories can be a valuable tool in changing knowledge, attitudes, and behavior, exploring psychological mechanisms such as identification, transportation, reactance, perceived interactivity, and vicarious self-affirmation that underlie these effects. This line of research offers theoretical and practical implications for changing behavior in contexts where reason and logic prove ineffective.
