Climate Change, Health and YOU! 
A special training for health professionals on climate change: 
what causes it, and how to stop it

Presented by Chesapeake PSR

Climate change poses a massive threat to the public's health.  Health impacts from climate change include:

  • More heat-related illness and death
  • More heart and lung disease from worsening air quality
  • Injuries and long-term health effects from more frequent severe storms
  • Greater risks from infectious disease, worsening water quality and water shortages
  • Increasing malnutrition and food insecurity
  • Greater risk of global and local conflict from shrinking resources

Greenhouse gases, the primary causes of climate change, are emitted primarily from burning fossil fuels:  gasoline and diesel fuel for transportation, coal, gas and oil for energy generation. Burning of fossil fuels also releases dangerous air pollutants like mercury, nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter, causing thousands of asthma attacks, lung cancer cases, and premature deaths.

By reducing emissions from fossil fuels, we reduce health impacts immediately while also helping to stabilize the climate. Reversing climate change is a monumental challenge, but it is also a monumental opportunity to create healthier, more equitable and livable communities.  Learn how you can help slow and stop climate change.  

Join Chesapeake PSR for a Climate Change, Health and YOU! Training. Dr. Cindy Parker will identify the sources of greenhouse gases, discuss the implications for human health, and show how you can help change policies to slow and stop climate change. This a free training, please register below in advance to help us plan accordingly for dinner.
