Join Physicians for Social Responsibility- Washington, DC, for the Climate Health Summit and learn more about climate change and health, policy solutions, and best practices for community outreach.
Climate change is causing drought, intense heat waves, poor air quality, and increased exposures to pollen and infections. Extreme weather conditions affect patients, practices, and health care facilities. If carbon pollution reductions are not achieved, the globe is on a path to a 4⁰C (7.2⁰F) temperature change which will reduce by half the world’s fresh water. Public policies are needed to minimize carbon emissions and prevent the worst impacts of climate change. PSR believes the country must move away from the burning of fossil fuels – which causes climate change while also polluting the air and water – in favor of clean solutions like renewable energy and energy efficiency.
The Climate Health Summit will inform participants about the health implications of climate change and the health benefits of climate solutions; provide communication skills useful for informing the public and policymakers about this critical issue; and provide resources and communications guidance to deliver that message effectively to decision-makers who have opportunities to support actions for a healthy climate.
