Listen to the latest Global Environmental Health chat episode. In this podcast episode, we speak with Geoff Scott, Ph.D., a clinical professor, and chair of the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the University of South Carolina. Geoff Scott, Ph.D., along with his colleague Paul Sandifer, Ph.D. of the College of Charleston, co-directs the NIEHS Center for Oceans and Human Health and Climate Change Interactions. We discuss the benefits aquatic ecosystems provide to humans as well as the harms caused by a changing climate on coastal and aquatic environments, in particular how increasing Vibrio bacteria and harmful algal blooms may impact public health.
