Seven prominent speakers in the climate change field spoke at the Bond Life Sciences Center this weekend as part of the Life Sciences & Society Program’s annual symposium.
Speakers spanned the field of climate change, from environmental and agricultural scientists, to journalists, to a professor of geography and an epidemiologist who works for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“There’s all these different angles, I think, that people don’t think about when they think climate change,” said Christine Costello, an assistant research professor in the department of bioengineering who helped with the conference. “They just think, you know, distant ice that’s maybe melting. But the speakers here are really trying to raise awareness of the potential impact of climate change will have on our lives.”
