Industry Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book links climate changes with public health consequences ... . written for policy makers and public health leaders to alert them to the effect of climate change and weather on human health. ... This is a valuable contribution to the dialogue between experts in climate change and public health especially related to climate-induced changes in infectious disease patterns and the ability to anticipate and minimize the adverse health consequences of weather-related events." (Jeanne B. Hewitt, Doody's Review Service, October, 2008)
