The Health Impacts of Climate Change

Thursday, May 30, 2013 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM EDT- Show in my Time Zone
Webinar Registration When we think about the cost of climate change, we tend to think about damage to homes and businesses. And for good reason: it’s expensive. But these billion-dollar figures often overlook one crucial question: how does climate change impact our health?

Please join us for a special webinar on May 30 to explore this question with nurses from Health Care Without Harm, an international coalition of hospitals, health care systems, and medical professionals. Climate Reality’s Maggie Fox will lead a discussion that will cover the unique vantage point that healthcare providers bring to our understanding of the impacts of carbon pollution, and cover topics such as how climate change affects our health—and what it costs us. This 30-minute, interactive webinar will also look at the steps hospitals are taking to prepare themselves and their patients for more extreme weather events.
