About the Toolkit

The toolkit includes a lesson plan adapted from NIH resources, as well as supplementary materials for outreach, recruitment and continued learning. Students leave these lectures with increased knowledge of the health impacts of climate change, vulnerable populations and equitable mitigation and adaptation strategies, and lecturers leave having gained valuable practice in climate and health communication and a deeper connection with those in their community.
