New course for clinicians on climate change and human health

Course focuses on heat and health in urban areas in session 3

A new clinician-focused webinar series, titled "Climate Change and Human Health" organized by Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) with contributions from several NIHHIS partners, is now open for registration.  The purpose of this 7-week course, which runs from Feb. 17 - April 7, 2021, is to help clinicians and other medical professionals better understand the ways in which climate variability and change impact human health and health care facilities. Another goal is to help clinicians become more conversant in climate science and climate-related impacts so that they may integrate climate science information into their communications with patients as well as their long-term resilience planning for their facilities.
