WUFT-TV Gainesville will air two public dialogues on climate change and public health in North Central Florida taped in Fall 2016. As part of a five-part series called “Our Community, Our Health,” one dialogue covered allergies, asthma and air quality and the other water quality in the face of changes in our region. The dialogues are companions to an exhibit at the Florida Museum of Natural History ongoing until Summer 2017.
Air dates and times:
2/19- 2pm and 12mid Effects of Climate Change on Allergies
2/26- 2pm and 12mid Effects of Climate Change on Water Quality
Video recordings of the dialogues are also available on YouTube at http://bit.ly/CommunityChatsUF. The conversations continue on social media at #CCNCFL, and facebook.com/communitychats
These events and exhibit were funded by UF/IFAS Research Deans’ office climate change grants in 2016 (PI Katie Stofer), produced by the UF Department of Agricultural Education and Communication with support from the Florida Museum and Science & UF.
