Project Summary

Wide socioeconomic disparities exist in heat-associated morbidity and mortality. Working with local officials and community leaders to understand the housing and health characteristics that increase vulnerability to heat-associated health effects will help identify optimal and sustainable alternatives to air conditioning for adapting to increasing extreme-heat events.
