UW-Madison professor’s climate change research earned him a spot in the National Academy of Medicine. 

Professor Jonathan Patz was elected to the National Academy of Medicine Monday due to his in-depth research on climate change and human health. 

The National Academy of Medicine is a non-profit organization that shares knowledge about issues in science, technology and math. 

Patz was selected based on his research connecting climate change to its effects on human health. His research proved climate change impacts cases of asthma, disease outbreaks and an increase in malaria outbreaks. 

With plenty of work as a climate change liaison between researchers, legislators and the public, Patz climbed his way into the elite group of scholars in the National Academy of Medicine.
