Calling all doctors: Training call to lead health/climate change presentation
November 12, 2012
Time: 5:00 pm Pacific/8:00 pm Eastern
Want to lead presentations on the affect of climate change on public health?
What impact does climate change have on our health? Quite a lot, actually. Whether it's heat stroke from hotter temperatures, respiratory ailments from longer allergy seasons or increased incidents of mosquito-borne diseases, global warming affects our health. Policy-makers and the public must take this into consideration as we weigh steps to reduce the risk of climate change. If you are a medical doctor and would like to lead presentations regarding the health effects of climate change -- who better to do that? -- join a training call with Dr. Wendy Ring from Physicians for Social Responsibility this Monday evening at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific. Email Steve.Valk@citizensclimatelobby.org for details to connect with the call.
