APHA and CDC Webinar Series Part 2 on "Climate Change: Mastering the Public Health Role"
Climate change is one of the most serious health threats facing our nation. Public health professionalshave a key role to play in responding to and preparing for these health threats. Much can be learned from current public health efforts to prevent and prepare for climate-related impacts.
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, we bring you a continuation of the series featuring speakers who 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 health departments in addressing climate change.
