Webinar Series on Climate Change and Public Health

March 2 at 2 PM EST

Climate change poses serious threats to public health now and in the future. Last year's webinar series brought together experts in the field of climate change to discuss topics such as climate science, health risk communication, adaptation strategies, and more. This year,  speakers will highlight state and local public health practices, climate change action planning, and how traditional public health tools can be used to enhance the capacity of state and local health departments in addressing climate change. Register for the first webinar to learn more.
