Live Webinar: The Clinical Implications of Climate on Human Health

Jun 9, 2022 11:13:00 AM / by Brooke Kochanski

Americans trust health professionals as sources of credible information on climate change. Health care providers and public health officials have the potential to reach and motivate a vast and diverse population of Americans to protect their health.

By educating and motivating health professionals, the upholding of the Hippocratic oath of "do no harm" is followed as clinicians can advocate for practices that put the environment and, therefore, the community's health first and foremost. This case study based webinar will provide clinical staff from different practice settings the information and strategies to care for a diverse population in a changing world.
