The UIC School of Public Health has received $100,000 of funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through its Environmental Education Grants Program. The funding will support the development of a new Climate and Health Institute, to be led by Elena Grossman, MPH, a research specialist in SPH’s division of environmental and occupational health sciences. The institute will aim to prepare future public health leaders to address the impacts from climate change, bringing together academics and community partners to develop and deliver a curriculum of training to students and community members.
