Climate Change Webinars

Because climate change is our greatest public health challenge, APHA has declared 2017 as the Year of Climate Change and Health.

Climate change harms the environment and also affects our health. Those health impacts include aggravated cardiovascular disease, more heat-related injuries, out-of control-allergies and increases in asthma attacks. And worse yet, the most vulnerable people in our communities are usually the ones most harmed by climate change and climate extremes.

Listen in on the climate and health webinars, including those that are part of the Year of Climate Change and Health and our four-part series with ecoAmerica on how Climate Changes Health. These webinars outline how and why our health is being affected by climate change. They also shed light on what is being done to adapt to the changes and challenges that go along with climate change.
