Based on its clinical mission and role in the health care system as a safety net provider for vulnerable populations and a leader in disaster medicine and response, emergency medicine is on the front lines of the climate health crisis. Webinar participants will learn about the impacts of climate change on human health from nationally recognized climate health thought leaders. They’ll also learn about opportunities for physicians to advocate for a sustainable future through leadership, education, and research. Climate change is already negatively affecting human health, and numerous professional medical societies have issued policy statements calling on physicians to advocate for policies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to educate their patients and communities about climate change and health. This webinar is the first in a three-part series, “Climate and health: An emergency medicine perspective.” Participate in the others on Oct. 30 and Nov. 15.
