Climate and Health Award Locations

  • University of Alaska Fairbanks | Alaska Alliance for Community Engagement – Climate and Health (AK ACE-CH)
    • Principal Investigator: Stacy Rasmus
    • Principal Investigator: Karsten Hueffer 
      The AK ACE-CH Hub will focus on Indigenous knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about climate change and its impacts on health and well-being in Alaska. The hub will develop and pilot-test strategies to assess multi-level risk and resilience factors in rural Alaska Native communities in two highly impacted regions of the state.
  • University of Colorado School of Public Health | Mountain West ACE-CH Hub: Climate Change Engagement Platform to Support Resilient Rural and Urban Communities
    • Principal Investigator: Katherine Dickinson
    • Principal Investigator: Katherine James 
      The Mountain West ACE-CH hub will support climate change resilience among economically disadvantaged populations, communities of color, immigrants, and some occupational groups experiencing disproportionate impact in both urban and rural communities near Denver. The hub will develop scientifically rigorous surveys to measure climate change and air quality concerns, beliefs, behaviors, information sources, assets, and desires regarding environmental justice.
  • University of Southern California | Community-driven Approaches to Environmental Justice and Health in the Face of the Climate Crisis in Southern California
    • Principal Investigator: Jill Johnston
      The University of Southern California hub will focus on community-driven approaches to environmental justice and health among families, immigrants, people of color, unhoused individuals, and elderly communities in Los Angeles and the City of Carson that are economically and socially marginalized. The hub will use spatial approaches to assess neighborhood-scale vulnerability, such as community air monitoring networks in climate justice neighborhoods.
  • Public Health Institute | Climate Health Adaptation and Resilience Mobilizing (CHARM) Lake County Project
    • Principal Investigator: Paul English
      The Public Health Institute hub will establish continuous community engagement structures with local Tribes and community-based organizations to reach American Indian Tribal communities, immigrants, and agricultural workers in Lake County, California. The hub will identify and understand health impacts of harmful algal blooms (HABs) and heat events on disproportionately affected populations, and synthesize and apply findings to improve communication and collaboration in HABs and heat preparedness and response.
