Orlando, Florida

A free conference from the American College of Preventive Medicine featuring PSR board members Drs. Cindy Parker and Lynn Ringenberg.

Time: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern
Location: Buena Vista Palace Hotel and Spa

The conference will enable preventive medicine physicians and other healthcare providers to come together to hear about the issues facing local and national leaders and to make a commitment to mobilize and actively participate in advocacy efforts targeting global climate change in their communities. This conference will include interactive working group sessions to develop communication messages and concrete plans for each participant to take back to their own community and work setting. The conference is free but you must register. See below for details.*

Featured speakers include:

  • Cindy Parker, MD, MPH, ACPM Environmental Health Committee Chair and Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins Environment, Energy, Sustainability, and Health Institute;

  • Edward Maibach, MPH, PhD, Director of the Center for Climate Change Communication Distinguished University Professor, Department of Communication George Mason University; and 
  • A panel of experts to discuss greening your practice, tools and resources, and science-based advocacy
