Recording now available, “Nurses Leading on Climate Locally,” Climate for Health

By Jennifer Giordano

In this episode of Let’s Talk Climate co-hosted by the Alliance of Nurses for a Healthy Environments (ANHE), we hear from two nurse leaders about how nurses across the US are engaging with climate change where they live and work. Janice Hawkins, PhD, RN, CNS-BC, from Old Dominion University School of Nursing in Virginia shares with us a new teaching program centering on sustainability that will empower nursing students to help reduce waste, GHGs and costs in medical facilities. Sarah Brown Blake, PhD, RN, PHN, of Chico State School of Nursing in northern California tells us about participating in outreach efforts after the Paradise Fire, and what she learned about lasting impacts and the power of community connections. Each of our guests also highlights the on-demand Learning Management System Climate Ambassador training, now available to nurses everywhere, and its ability to educate and inspire them to add their trusted voices in our fight to stabilize our climate and bring about environmental justice.
