Dr. Robert Dubrow

Robert Dubrow, MD, PhD is Professor of Epidemiology in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at Yale School of Public Health.

In 2015, moved by what he sees as the greatest public health challenge in this century, he committed himself to a new direction in the field of climate change and health, and became founding Faculty Director for an initiative that grew into the Yale Center on Climate Change and Health, for which he continues to serve as Faculty Director. The Center utilizes research, education, and public health practice to help safeguard the health of human populations from adverse impacts of climate change and human activities that cause climate change. The Center works with academic, government, and civil society partners and aims to make local, national, and international impact and to integrate social justice into all of its work. Dr. Dubrow's research focuses on adverse health effects of heat and air pollution. He also has interests in the benefits and harms of air conditioning, in climate change and health in the Caribbean, in health equity issues as they relate to climate change, and in early warning systems for vector-borne diseases. His previous research focused on the epidemiology of cancer and HIV.
