CLU Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center, 130 Overton Court, rooms 253/254 (second floor)

Some of the “new” diseases typically emphasized by media may have been present for many years in a less virulent form and may have mutated to cause large-scale outbreaks. In many instances, however, humans are at least partially to blame. Environmental and sociological factors are often implicated in outbreaks. Global warming, intrusion into rain forests, as well as imprudent behavior result in the spread of diseases.
In this talk, an overview of a number of diseases will be given, why they are public health problems and how in many cases we may go about ameliorating their impact by prudent behavior.
