Heat Health Network

The Wisconsin Heat Health Network seeks to build awareness among Madison and Milwaukee area stakeholders about heat impacts and climate change. Our research documents the changing nature of air masses due to climate change and the impacts on human health. We strive to take action alongside local governments to adopt solutions to cool our cities. Project collaborators include UniverCity Alliance, WICCI, Global Health Institute, City of Madison, Dane County, Applied Climatologists, Inc., and the City of Milwaukee.
