PSR, 73 Other Health and Medical Organizations Release Call to Action on Climate Health Emergency

PSR was proud to help draft “The Call to Action on Climate, Health, and Equity: A Policy Action Agenda.” It’s time for government, business and civil sector leaders to recognize that climate change is a health emergency and to advance bold solutions.

On June 24, PSR joined with 73 other health and medical organizations, including the American Medical Association and the American Heart Association, to call on U.S . health leaders and policymakers at all government levels to take urgent action to address the climate health emergency.
“The health, safety and well-being of millions of people in the U.S. have already been harmed by human-caused climate change, and health risks in the future are dire without urgent action to fight climate change,” the medical and public health groups wrote.

Coverage of the release of the Call to Action appeared the AP, NBC, Philly Voice, and other media outlets.
