From May through June, the American Public Health Association and ecoAmerica will co-sponsor a four-part webinar series entitled "Making the Connection: Climate Changes Health". The series examines some of the most significant impacts that climate change has on human health.
Public health professionals and clinicians are tasked with finding solutions to unsettling changes in our communities that can be hard to pinpoint. The rates of allergies, asthma, heat-related incidents and vector-borne diseases are on the rise, and communities and patients look to health experts to connect the dots and find solutions.
The series will feature expert perspectives from American Academy of Pediatrics, American Psychological Association, American College of Sports Medicine and American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology. The webinars will touch upon the following climate and health topics:
- Climate Changes Allergies and Asthma (Monday, May 9, 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. EDT)
Mark Mitchell, MD, David B. Peden, MD, MS, and Mona Sarfaty, MD, MPH
