Symposium Speaker: Stefanie Ebelt Sarnat, ScD, MSc

Dr. Stefanie Ebelt Sarnat is Associate Professor of Environmental Health at Emory University.  Dr. Sarnat's research focuses on examining cardiovascular and respiratory effects of ambient air quality using population- and panel-based approaches.  Dr. Sarnat leads several large-scale time-series studies of ambient air quality and acute morbidity, with specific interests in assessing the health impacts of air pollution, meteorological conditions, and weather extremes.  Her research also includes field investigations, with detailed exposure and health outcome data collected in panels of susceptible individuals.

What a great story by @carolrclark on our latest work! "...just centimeter-scale displacement of icebergs that are hundreds of meters in size generates the start of a de-coherent flow that leads to a calving event..." @Emory_Physics @EmoryNews @GlacierHub news.emory.edu/features/2021/… Retweeted by Climate@Emory

Researchers @EmoryUniversity are part of a sweeping new study that finds that more than 1 in 3 heat-related deaths can be attributed to human-made #climatechange. Noah Scovronick @EmoryRollins is second author on the paper in Nature Climate Change. links.emory.edu/8X Retweeted by Climate@Emory

What @esaikawa and her student found in the Westside was “both shocking and heartbreaking.”The EPA was called and found metal levels in the soil high enough to classify more than 1,000 properties in the neighborhood as Superfund sites links.emory.edu/7T via @EmoryUniversity Retweeted by Climate@Emory
