Student Associates

The Yale Center on Climate Change and Health (CCCH) Student Associates are graduate, professional, and undergraduate students from a range of academic disciplines, who all share a passion for understanding the interface between climate change and health. The CCCH Student Associates program provides a venue for students across Yale University to discuss ideas in an interdisciplinary environment, learn from experts in the field, and engage with research and novel interventions in the climate and health field. Applications open each fall, and all Yale students are eligible to apply. YCCCH has partnered with several professionals working in the field of climate change and health to offer mentoring opportunities. Student Associates can get more information on YCCCH's Mentor Program page.

Guests at previous CCCH Student Associate seminars have included: Dr. Daniel Costa, former National Program Director for the Air Climate & Energy Research Program U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; Peggy Shepard, Co-Founder and Executive Director of WE ACT for Environmental Justice; and Dr. Anthony Costello, co-chair of the Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change.
