Let’s Talk Climate: ClimateRx

By Ben Fulgencio-Turner

Clinicians and public health workers are in the front lines of the climate crisis, seeing the real impacts on patients and communities. But it can be difficult to engage with others about these facts – visits are already stretched thin and there is a lot going on. ClimateRx is here to help! This new tool is developed to provide health care workers with a way to engage on climate and health in a non-interruptive, non-confrontational way.
