Must See Health Sessions
American Climate Leadership Summit 2022 — National Health + Climate Forum

The 11th annual American Climate Leadership Summit has just completed, featuring
dynamic and inspiring leaders from climate-centered nonprofits, local and national political offices, faith organizations, media, researchers, and student groups. Day 3 was the National Health + Climate Forum, providing updates on both physical and mental impacts, equity, and actions health professionals are taking to better care for patients and motivate policymakers to make needed changes. We even got a look at the future of health education, hearing from the co-founder of Medical Student

s for a Sustainable Future — a rapidly growing national organization working to integrate climate change into medical school curriculums. Many talks on the other days of the Summit also provided valuable insights into the health impacts tied to climate change.
