New Webinar Series Explores How Climate Changes Health
As the recent Climate and Health Assessment from the U.S. Global Change Research Program made abundantly clear, climate change impacts many key aspects of our health, from air quality to mental health and well-being. However, climate change has often been thought of and isolated as an environmental issue within the health community.
ecoAmerica and Climate for Health are pleased to be partnering with the American Public Health Association (APHA) on a new webinar series that explores climate change as a foundational health issue. Featuring esteemed speakers from a range of prominent organizations, these webinars are the first to connect both medicine and public health to climate change.
As ecoAmerica President Bob Perkowitz points out in the video below, “Americans trust health professionals more than any other source of information. We need the collective voice of health and medical professionals to take action.”
Watch the video to see why Making the Connection: Climate Changes Health is one webinar series you won’t want to miss.
