Now is a critical time for action to address the climate crisis and the scientific community has a key role to play—not only in advancing scientific understanding of climate change and its impacts, but also in science communication and engagement with communities, stakeholders, and decision-makers at all levels. Policy decisions on climate change must be informed by both scientific evidence and robust community input. The impacts of climate change exacerbate existing societal inequities, and climate solutions must ensure that community voices are elevated and environmental justice is...

Talk Title: "Medicaid as a Policy Lever for Improving Health Equity in the United States"

Speaker: Dr. William Schpero

TALK ABSTRACT: Medicaid is the single largest insurer in the United States and disproportionately provides health care coverage for members of minoritized racial and ethnic groups. Due, in part, to its federalist structure, Medicaid is both a source of inequity in the U.S. health care system, as well as a potential policy lever for achieving equity. In this seminar, Dr....

This is the second day of a two-day virtual workshop on peacebuilding, climate change, and migration. The first day of the workshop is March 22, 2022; participants are welcome to attend for just one or both days.

On this second day, we will examine understudied regions which are at substantial risk of climate change impacts, including Latin America, Southeast Asia, and South Asia. What resources, methods, and approaches can help us better understand the relationship between peacebuilding, climate change, and migration in these understudied regions? How can we...

A horse is a horse… or is it? We know that humans and animals experience the world differently, but it’s challenging to gauge the extent of these differences or apply this understanding to how we treat animals in our care.

In this webcast, Cornell University veterinarian and equine welfare specialist Lindsay Goodale will take you into the mind — and body — of a horse to explore the interrelationship among animal cognition, biology, and welfare. Using horses as a case study, Dr. Goodale will explain how the study of animals’ perceptive and cognitive abilities, along with their...

Two In-Person Keynote Talks with Dr. Beronda Montgomery, author of Lessons from Plants

Mentoring is often positioned as the transfer of information from an experienced, senior individual (or mentor) to a junior, inexperienced individual (or mentee). Implicit in this description are the ideas that at the core of mentoring is a process of teaching – to guide, instruct and that mentoring may largely be a one-way flow of information. Increasingly, however, mentoring is being understood as a process best...
