The effects of climate change impacts all facets of life, and action must be taken now to protect people’s health as climate-related disasters further threaten access to clean air, clean water, healthy soils, safe and nutritious food, stable housing, as well as cultural and economic security. In the midst of extreme weather and climate-related threats, there is an opportunity to reform inequitable systems and laws that have left frontline communities, including many communities of color, more susceptible to health threats. Public health law can help drive a just transition, promote health equity, help mitigate climate change, and make communities more resilient to and prepared for the health impacts of climate change.

The 2022 Climate Change and Health Equity Summit will bring together health departments, health care providers, and community-based organizations and others who are working with communities to achieve health equity and develop climate solutions that are centered in a health equity framework.

Attend this Summit to engage with others to build a shared understanding of how public health law can and should make our communities healthier and help mitigate climate change.
