Learning Opportunity: Exploring and Addressing Climate Change and Public Health Webinar Series

Live Webinar | June 16, 2022 | June 23, 2022 | 11:00- 12:00 pm ET

This 2-part webinar series explores the connection between climate change and public health. Anticipated changes due to ocean acidification, ecosystem change, biodiversity loss, and the incidence of infectious diseases, among other concerns, will all have impacts on a wide range of human systems that affect health. We will discuss the impact of these changes, the policies and technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and the need for strategies for both mitigation and adaptation.

Learning Objectives

Webinar 1

  • Explain the rationale, including associated evidence used to support the case for anthropogenic change in global climate systems
  • Describe the connections between anticipated changes in climate, human health, and public health services
  • List two potential areas to explore for mitigation and adaptation

Webinar 2

  • Explain how climate change will impact ecosystems that are directly related to human activity
  • Describe the connections between these anticipated changes and human society and how this will affect human health and our capacity to manage public health impacts
  • List potential responses to climate change that explain where we can mitigate change and where adaptation will likely be required
