Through this, we will spotlight alumni, their current work, the work they completed while in the program, and how they translated the concepts in the DrPH Program into their current careers. This month’s DrPH Alumni Spotlight is on Pablo Villalobos, DrPH ’18!

Title: Spring 1 ID 539 Built Environment, Human Transportation, Equity, and Climate

What is your sustainability home ec class idea?

Experts cautioned that climate change should not be about polar bears because the bears do not live next door. Tornadoes and fires are like distant cousins, once removed. Tackling coal only means making a poster. What if we went back to the origins of home ec classes and “ag” schools and came up with solutions the homeowner and children could master for themselves and others: home bike parking room with outlets and benches; front yard trees; EV chargers for driveway-space renters; porch lights?
