Population Health Spotlight Speaker Series

Population Health Spotlight Series 2021-22: Climate, Justice and Health

The 2021-22 year theme, Climate, Justice and Health, was dedicated to confronting climate change and its impact on population health. The call for climate action has reached a tipping point as the adverse effects of our warming planet like persistent droughts, extreme weather patterns, poor air quality, and wildfires continue to increase. It has also become more evident that marginalized communities will bear the brunt of climate change, and its impacts can further exacerbate unequal social conditions. As we address this threat worldwide, leaders in this fight must consider that not all effects are felt equitably and develop solutions accordingly.
