Associate Professor of Family Medicine Caroline Wellbery and 2012 Environment Initiative grant recipient, project entitled “Creating Locally, Connecting Globally,” uses art to explain the threats to human health posed by global climate change.

In addition to writing a paper on their findings, three teams of students from the College, School of Nursing & Health Studies, the School of Foreign Service, and the Medical School worked together to create sculptures illustrating their data. By pairing scientific fact and artistic expression, Professor Wellbery and her students hope to connect on multiple levels with their audience.
