Dean's Weekly Message

Nov. 27, 2017


Dear colleague: 

Jay Lemery, MD, associate professor of emergency medicine, has coauthored Enviromedics: The Impact of Climate Change on Human Health with Paul Auerbach, MD, professor of emergency medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. Written for laypeople and policymakers, the book outlines the impact of global warming through the eyes of physicians. Lemery, chief of the Department of Emergency Medicine’s Wilderness and Environmental Medical Section, says in a CU Anschutz Today article that dialogue about the impact of climate change is lacking the perspective of physicians and health care providers, who see the health impacts caused by the changing environment. 

The Anschutz Medical Campus Bookstore is hosting a holiday party on Thursday, December 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first floor of Education 2 South. The entire campus is invited to attend. Attendees will be invited to build a care package for members of the armed services with supplies provided to create ornaments and cards. Refreshments will be served and a contest for a chance to win bookstore swag will be held. 

A reminder: The ZATA (Zimbabwe AIDS Treatment Assistance) Project is holding a Zimbabwe art and sculpture auction at the Fulginiti Pavilion on Thursday, November 30. The ZATA Project is a University of Colorado initiative started in 2004 to raise funds for the Division of Infectious Diseases’ partner site at the University of Zimbabwe. ZATA has raised over $350, 000 for AIDS programs (research, clinical, and a micro-loan program for HIV-infected farmers) that have played an important role in combating the epidemic in Zimbabwe. There is a $25 ticket charge for the event, which includes live music, artwork, and food and drinks.


Have a good week,
