Taylor and Alicia in Bahamas this week

National Academies meeting on Ecosystems and Human Health

Brian Allen presents to the group

This week Taylor and Alicia participated in a followup meeting to a National Academies ‘Keck Futures’ conference on ecosystem services.  A sub-group that focused on ecosystem services and human health received a follow-up grant to continue working together.  We managed to find a way to meet in the Bahamas to do so!  At the meeting we developed a framework for broad collaboration linking ecosystem change to changes in health outcomes, outlined a paper or two, and set aside time to explore Eleuthera Island.
