Use your expertise to engage high schoolers:
Many people know about climate change, but not many understand it’s connection to health. We’ve challenged members to reach out to their local high school and offer to talk with a group of students. The lesson plan takes about 100 minutes total and could be presented be during National Public Health Week or on Earth Day. No matter when you do it, ask the school for permission to post on social media, then tag @APHAEnvironment and use #ClimateChangesHealth. Learn more.

Use our policy statements to inform advocacy!
As members of APHA, we are committed to educating the public about environmental health. We do this by contacting our legislators, commenting on federal proposals, collaborating to advance environmental stewardship, writing policy statements and more.
Policy statements help shape APHA's position on legislation and regulations, help others write briefs and statements about public health issues, highlight the latest research on specific public health topics, and serve as a resource for the general public. We have over 400 policy statements related to the environment in our policy statement database.
