Learning Areas:Environmental health sciences
Public health or related public policy
Discuss the implications with respect to the need for public health programs to address the projected temperature attributable mortality projections for 209 US cities over the period from 2010-2100. Discussion will focus on regional variation in results and trends in results over time under alternative future climates. Identify key uncertainties in developing future heat and cold mortality projections.
