Hum Ecology & Environment w1

Hum Ecology & Environment week 1 discussion.


Pick any one question and respond in an original discussion post by midnight, Day 4 of Week 1.

After the initial post, you must provide substantive responses to 
at least 2 of your classmates’ posts and remain 
active on at least 2 additional days during Week 1.

There are 2 parts to this week’s discussion forum – Answer both parts in the same post.


Introduce yourself to your peers. State how far along you are in the program, where you work, your future goals, and any experiences you would like to share. Brief info about me so you can develop a brief introduction: (Heidi Lugo, I’ll be graduating in March 2024, I work at Mercy Hospital in 7c med-surgical floor, goals (become a nurse practitioner))

Next, pick 
one of the two questions and answer.

1. How would you explain climate change to someone? What aspects would you include, and why? Next, how does climate change intersect with race and gender in its impact on people's health? Support your post with data. Lastly, can you think of areas impacted by climate change that the unit did not cover? How can nurses help in addressing this environmental concern? (USLOs 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4)


2. Pick two recent events in the past five years that you think are climate-change-related and describe them briefly. Next, discuss why you consider them as environmental concerns. What measures could be taken at individual and institutional levels to prevent such events from occurring again? And how can nurses advocate for addressing this ecological concern? (USLOs 1.1, 1.2)


Each week, your discussion will be graded on a point scale. To successfully complete each weekly discussion assignment, you will need to address all items included in the discussion topic/question 

Your input should be in your own words (to avoid plagiarism), demonstrating your understanding and comprehension of the topic. Be sure to support all your posts (initial post + responses) with specific references to the assigned readings, lecture material, and other relevant research you find appropriate in APA format.
