Climate Change and Community Health: Margaret A. Davidson Graduate Fellowship


This research question really asks a
fellow to dive deep, look at what climate change impacts mean at the local level,
and asks what does that mean for the health of the people and the communities
that are here. Being present as well as interacting
with the natural environment is so important in people’s wellness and
healing process. Recognizing that we are one and the same—we are not separate
from but a part of. Indigenous teachings have held us for thousands of years that
we are not more than, better than or on top of any food chain. We are an
ecosystem and a part of it equally as important as all pieces of it. There’s nothing as important as putting
a human face on climate change right now. It’s really important for
decision makers to have the opportunity to understand that climate change
impacts real people in real ways and this research topic will help illuminate
that at the local scale.
