Dr. Deon Canyon co-authored an article titled “Forecasted Impact of Climate Change on Infectious Disease and Health Security in  Hawaii by 2050,” published by the  Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness journal.  Canyon and coauthors Rick Speare and Frederick Burke, discuss the potential impacts of climate change on the study of infectious and vector-borne diseases in Hawaii.  They consider scenarios based on the anticipated effects of higher average temperatures and weather extremes on disease distribution.  Their conclusions recommend a resilience model to increase adaptive capacity for all climate change impacts rather than one focused specifically on communicable diseases.
