Climate Change and Human Health ECHO: Nature-Based Solutions
Running on Wednesdays from September 7 – October 5, 2022 | Virtual | 2:00 PM ET
Climate change affects nearly every aspect of society, including our health. The Climate Change ECHO program equips health care and public health professionals with the necessary skills to treat patients amid climate change. This program includes evidence-based training on: the science of climate change, climate-related health effects and the most effective communication skills.
Regionally and nationally regarded speakers – from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Environmental Defense Fund and many academic medical centers across the United States and internationally – will share their expertise and provide mentorship for participants.
This exciting series will explore different ways to mitigate climate change effects on human health by working with nature. From national parks to coastal regions, we’ll learn what we can do to make a difference and help ensure a healthy planet for ourselves and the generations to come.
