Thank you to all who joined us in person and virtually for our 2023 Annual Meeting: Seize the Moment for Climate Action: Building the Climate and Health Movement. We were honored to be joined in person by Dr. Jalonne White-Newsome and John Podesta and have virtual remarks by Senator Edward Markey. We had 300 registrants with approximately 100 people coming in person for our first hybrid meeting since the pandemic started.
- Visits to over 60 offices by 53 advocates on March 21st in support of stronger soot rules by the EPA
- A press conference with Senator Tom Carper, the Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health, Health Care Without Harm, and other partners in support of stronger rules from the EPA for soot, methane, and power plant emissions
- 25 sponsors who continue supporting our work to grow and diversify the climate movement, foster collective action, and ensure climate policy is grounded in health and equity
We heard the common messages from our speakers that the health professional voice is essential for climate policy, that we must work closely with frontline communities to ensure dollars from the Inflation Reduction Act flow to the places that would benefit the most, and that we have big opportunities whether through agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency or in the legislative process for change.
Join our list here to stay connected with the Consortium.
