About the Event

With more frequent and/or severe hurricanes, wildfires and days of extreme heat, our rapidly changing climate threatens nearly every aspect of the way we live, work and play. However, the biggest threat from climate change is to our health and wellbeing. 

In a recent Grand Rounds webinar event co-hosted by the MGH Institute of Health Professions Center for Climate Change, Climate Justice, and Health and the Mass General Center for the Environment and Health, a panel of experts discussed the adverse impacts of extreme heat on population health, shared emerging evidence-based insights into the effectiveness of prevention strategies and talked about how social resilience is important in preparing for extreme weather that comes as a result of climate change.
