Climate Change and Health – From Science to Practice

Tuesday, December 16, 2014 at 1pm EST.

Climate ChangeChanges occurring in the world’s climate pose significant threats to human health and wellbeing and will have even greater impacts in the future. These threats are wide-ranging, including decreased air quality and increases in extreme weather events, wildfire, and illnesses transmitted by water, and disease-carriers, such as mosquitoes and ticks. Although scientific understanding of the effects of climate change is still emerging, there is considerable evidence to support preparing for potential health risks.

Early public health action is essential to ensuring that systems are in place to protect people from the impacts of climate change. As the nation's public health agency, CDC is using its prevention expertise to help states and cities investigate, prepare for, and respond to the health effects of climate change.

This session of Grand Rounds will explore the wide-ranging health impact of our changing climate and discuss some of the strategies, programs and partnerships currently being used to confront the challenges associated with global climate change.
