About Langdon S. Lawrence

I am a physician (double board-certified) and public health specialist. I have two principal professional interests. First, discoveries touching on the promotion of actual health, as opposed to the treatment of disease; in short, “What does it take for us to thrive?” And second, challenges arising from the nexus of climate change, environmental degradation, conflict, and forced migration as the planet heads towards 8 billion people.

Community Engagement

I have worked or volunteered in poverty alleviation and development efforts, humanitarian relief, and disaster responses around the world. These include time in rural south-central India in the early 1990s; service with International Medical Corps in Aceh Province, Indonesia following the 2004 tsunami; and participation on the American Red Cross’ rapid health assessment team assigned to the Gulf Coast of Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina. In a research capacity, I’ve held fellowships at both the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Center for Health and the Global Environment at the Harvard School of Public Health, principally focusing on outreach to the general public regarding the health impacts of climate change.
