Climate Change & Health 2023: Achieving Human and Planetary Health through Sustainability Action

A Virtual Symposium

Saturday, April 1, 2023
8:30am - 12:30pm (EDT)

Climate change is a growing public health concern with implications for safety and well-being; nutrition and food security; food, water, and vector-borne diseases; and mental health. Climate change and the social determinants of health are closely aligned, contributing to disparate environmental exposures and health inequalities, as a disproportionate number of low-income individuals, some communities of color, and those with higher vulnerability to disease and chronic health conditions are at risk.

Join national experts and faculty from the MGH Institute of Health Professions School of Nursing Center for Climate Change, Climate Justice and Health, and the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for the Environment and Health, Brigham and Women's Hospital to develop sustainable strategies to achieve human and planetary health. 

Read the 2022 Lancet Countdown U.S. Brief which is supported by a diverse group of health experts from over 70 institutions, organizations, and centers who recognize that climate change is first and foremost a health crisis.
