About this Event
Climate change poses a significant threat to human health, particularly impacted marginalized and vulnerable patients and communities. The consequences are broad -- encompassing heightened exposure to carcinogens and disruptions in essential healthcare services (e.g., screening, preventing, treatment) during climate-related emergencies. Historically marginalized communities are especially susceptible to health impacts of climate change due to structural inequalities and discriminatory policies. Despite being at the forefront of this crisis, the healthcare sector is responsible for approximately 10% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, with a significant share attributed to hospital and outpatient care. In light of this pressing and expanding challenge, there exists a substantial opportunity for healthcare professionals to stay informed, establish best practices for decarbonizing healthcare and collaboratively cultivate climate resistant within both their practices and communities.
