April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
April 26, 4th Tuesday of the Month, at 7PM (Eastern) | 4PM (Pacific)
Climate changes health: Dr. Kristie L. Ebi discusses key findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 6th assessment report
Climate-related temperature, precipitation, and sea level rise can affect the magnitude and pattern of health outcomes. Climate change harms include illness and death from high ambient temperatures and extreme weather events; respiratory and cardiovascular diseases; undernutrition; water- and food-borne diseases; vector-borne diseases; and physical and mental health effects of climate-related violent conflict. Climate change harms human health outcomes both directly and indirectly. Our efforts to mitigate emission will be a key determinant of health systems to manage risks later in the century.
Dr. Ebi will discuss the risks and consequences climate inaction will have on our healthcare system.
