GSPH Professor Interviewed Live on the Weather Channel

Evelyn Talbott, Dr PH, professor in the Department of Epidemiology was interviewed live on the Weather Channel Wednesday morning regarding her research on heat and health. The Post-Gazette also interviewed Talbott for an article that ran last Friday.

Talbott, along with Xiaohui Xu from the University of Florida College of Medicine, led a study that found a 12 percent increase in hospitalizations for stroke when temperatures reach 87 degrees or higher. According to the study, these temperatures pose a notably higher risk of stroke for people 65 and older.
