Join us for a conversation with Dr. Mike Allen who will discuss the intersectionality of extreme heat and considers how
Hampton Roads may build heat-health resilience while also addressing flooding concerns
and improving overall wellbeing of our community in the context of a changing climate.

Over recent decades, vulnerability to heat has decreased in the United States, yet challenges remain as it relates to environmental justice,
occupational health, and planning for future urban environments. 

Projected increases to heatwave frequency, intensity, and duration have significant ramifications for human health


Science Pubs ODU is an opportunity for the community to engage with ODU researchers in an informal setting. Join us for a lively and engaging discussion; a curious mind is all that's needed!
