Climate Change and Disease’
A research paper at least 6 single spaced pages at most 10 pages with references (references are not a part of the page minimum), APA 6.0 formatting, about how climate change contributes to global health, epidemics/pandemics, tropical diseases, and ways that reducing climate change will promote global health.
Objectives: To engage students in guided, self-regulated learning on the topic of the influence of human actions on climate change and related health implications associated with northward bound mobilization of disease-carrying, tropical and subtropical vectors (e.g. Asian tiger mosquito,
Aedes albopictus, or triatomine reduviid bug).
Topics to address in paper : The paper is to be about the facts and your opinion on those facts. List the neglected tropical diseases that have become endemic to North America, identify which of the neglected tropical diseases are transmitted by an insect vector that was previously endemic to South America, describe the molecular mechanisms associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease you selected, describe the human innate and adaptive immune response associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease you selected, describe the influence of environmental factors associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease you selected, describe the influence of climate change associated with infection by the neglected tropical disease you selected and describe the influence of human actions on climate change. Describe whether or not and how climate change can be reversed or slowed. Describe what you can do personally to reverse or slow climate change and the incidence of the neglected tropical disease you selected. The research report should be in 12 point font in Arial or Times New Roman and the margins should not be larger than 1” (normal setting)
Include in-text citations for anything you quote or paraphrase and follow APA 6.0 style formatting.
