Climate Change and Population Health Sciences
During this half-day seminar, attendees will get an overview of how climate change impacts physical and mental health as well as the societal drivers of vulnerability and environmental health inequality. Using case studies, we will explore the evidence base of interventions to reduce environmental health inequality and identify approaches to increase resiliency.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
-Identify key causes and implications of climate change for health and health outcomes
-Explore the societal drivers of environmental inequity
-Design responses and actions that health care systems and public health actors can take to reduce the disproportionate impact of climate change on the health of vulnerable populations
-Critique the evidence base of interventions that address environmental sources of health inequity
-Identify priority areas for evidence development at the intersection of climate change and health
Recommended Audience: For those carrying out policy research, social science research and those developing and implementing programs at the intersection of climate change and population health.
