About the Event

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.

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