The burning of fossil fuels and the effects of a changing climate have a significant impact on public health in our country. Existing health threats will intensify, and new health threats will emerge. In addition, climate change has a disproportionate impact on the communities already suffering from environmental health burdens. This webinar will look at two projects, one from Boston’s Climate Ready team and one from the Rhode Island Department of Health, that are addressing health equity and community resilience.
