TELI – 2014

Program Description

The theme of TELI 2014 was “Health and the Environment: From Global to Local” to engage faculty in ideas of Climate Change and Global Health. The overall aims of this TELI were to create a strong understanding of the environmental connections of health issues, provide course content for faculty, as well as introduce research and communication tools and skills. During the four day workshop, lectures from experts in the environmental field were combined with group learning opportunities and field experiences covering a wide range of issues from community organizing to ecosystems science to information technology. This helped faculty

Daily learning consisted of 2 to 3 speakers on selected topics related to the connections between human and environmental health, including chemicals in the environment.
