Next Tuesday afternoon at the Columbus YWCA you can join public health experts in a discussion of the health risks created by climate change and how the health community can address these coming challenges through mitigation, adaptation and preparedness.

Speakers will include Jeremy Hess, M.D. a consultant to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Environmental Health and Dr. Kim Knowlton, Senior Scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Health and Environment Program.

As earth’s thermostat continues to climb, human health problems will only become more frequent. There is still time for health professionals to help protect communities from these risks to public health and take aggressive action to cut global warming pollution.
