On Climate Change and Health

We are proud endorsers of PSR's former president’s new important course On Climate Change and Health, offered for free online at NextGenU. Here's the quick blurb from the course page on the NextGenU website:

This Climate Change and Health Certificate teaches about the effects of climate change on human health (through online didactics), and gives a chance to practice techniques to reduce those effects (with globally-available peers and mentors). All components of this training (like all NextGenU.org trainings) are free, including registration, learning, testing, and a certificate of completion.

Climate change is the largest public health threat of all time! We need to learn about the causes, develop the cures and address the health issues it will cause.  Please join us in addressing this critical issue. If you're interested in diving deeper, head on over to NextGenU and sign up!

  • It's time to put our health before polluter profits

    Climate change is endangering us now, harming public health and causing damage to our communities from extreme weather events. Tell your senators that rolling back methane pollution standards, a key step in our fight against climate change, is unacceptable!

  • Tell Congress: Protect our Health -- Oppose extreme anti-health bills

    Congress should ensure that federal agencies enforce laws that protect our water, air quality and public health--not curb the power of those agencies to carry out their mission. Tell your representative you oppose the REINS Act and the Midnight Rule Relief Act of 2017.
