Brock gets break to study climate problems

Written by 

Warren Wilson College chemistry professor John Brock was recently awarded a grant by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to fund a sabbatical leave to study the human health impacts of climate  change in Appalachia and the southeastern United States.

Brock will combine existing databases on climate and health to develop new models to assess and predict the human health impacts of climate change. After the sabbatical, the project will be adapted for continued  research with undergraduate students at Warren Wilson.

“I have been looking for ways to bring together my interest in public health and the environment,” Brock said. “In addition, I have been trying to find projects of interest to students for research that can be done relatively inexpensively on campus. This project fits the bill perfectly.”

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
