First, Do No Harm: Putting Health First in Climate & Energy Issues
September 12, 2013
Time: 5:30 - 8:30 pm
Location: Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center
“First, do no harm,” is a quote by Hippocrates, with which most health professionals are familiar. We understand that before launching into a new endeavor, we need to make sure that we do not cause harm. That is the premise by which we are holding our event on September 12th, to shed light on the impacts of climate change and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on health and on the environment and how to put health back in the spotlight.
