Climate Changes Health - green

Dear friend of public health,

Having focused on climate change and health throughout 2017, APHA is excited to build on that momentum through our 2018 activities.

APHA and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are hosting the webinar Climate Changes Health: Adaptation in Action April 26 from 1-2 p.m. EDT. The webinar will provide information about the CDC’s BRACE, or Building Resilience Against Climate Effects, framework and share climate adaptation steps in Wisconsin, Oregon and Maryland to prevent the health threats related to climate change. Register today.

Climate change uniquely affects tribal communities. Learn more in our guest blog post for the Climate for Health initiative, written by our very own Ivana Castellanos.

APHA is pleased to share that the Medical Society Consortium on Climate & Health, a group of member medical societies and health- and science-based organizations, recently hosted the Climate & Health Solutions Conference. The conference included presentations on a range of solutions such as: pricing carbon, accelerating the transition to clean energy and greening the health sector. If you couldn't attend, check out the presentation slides and video recordings.

Keep an eye out for the upcoming release of the climate change and health supplemental issue of the American Journal Of Public Health. The issue features articles on the health and equity impacts of climate change. Climate Change and Health: Research, Translation, Policy and Practice will be released April 26 at 4 p.m. EDT. 

Thank you for everything you do to support climate change and health activities at APHA. Visit us online and follow #ClimateChangesHealth on social media to stay up-to-date.
