CBER Director Ulrike Passe interviewed on extreme heat alert research

The research team recently received a three-year, $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to gather data and develop sophisticated machine-learning tools capable of giving residents in higher-risk Des Moines neighborhoods more time to prepare for dangerous heat in their homes. The researchers are collaborating with officials from the city of Des Moines, Polk County, the University of Northern Iowa and the University of Texas at Arlington and plan to make their tools widely available after the conclusion of the grant.
