This webinar will revisit the 2018 discussion provided by speakers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Climate-Ready States & Cities Initiative. Hear a "one year" update from Nissa Tupper from the Minnesota Department of Health Climate & Health Program and have a chance for Q & A with Aaron Ferguson, MPA, with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Climate & Health Adaptation Program.
