Environmental Health and Climate Change Mitigation and Preparedness Resources for Health Centers

Mar 11, 2023 8:30am ‐ Mar 11, 2023 9:45am

Identification: PSA1

An expansive body of research has shown the populations that health centers serve—racially and ethnically marginalized groups and those with limited income-- stand to be most negatively impacted by a changing climate and environmental issues. Further, recent reports have also shown that the health care sector, and especially community health centers, need support and resources to build climate resilience. Ultimately, recent attention and resources from the US federal government, agencies, and civil society have put health centers in a prime position to be able to mitigate, build resilience, and prepare for climate change. During this session, join experts as they discuss federal and civil society resources available to support health centers in preparing for a changing climate, especially the numerous and severe extreme weather events like heat, fires, hurricanes, and flooding. Resources include the Harvard C-Change and Americares Patient Centered Climate Resilience Toolkits and information from the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity.
Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the intersectional impact of climate change, exposure, and vulnerability on the health of patients served by CHCs.
  • Discuss recent federal policies and agency/civil society resources available to support CHCs in preparing for climate change and environmental health issues.
  • Discuss opportunities to incorporate patient-centered climate resilience toolkits and action plans at health centers.
