At this critical juncture in combating the worldwide threat of climate change, it undeniably poses many risks to our health, making it one of the greatest public health challenges. As public health professionals, we need to work towards safeguarding all communities against climate risks by protecting people’s health, well-being and quality of life from climate change impacts. Stronger and more climate resilient health systems can save lives and protect from future climate risks. The 2017 APHA Annual Meeting will mark the cornerstone of the Year of Climate Change and Health.
Join us in listening to welcome remarks from APHA leaders. The reception offers you a great opportunity to network with climate solution-oriented professionals, students and like-minded people.
