Climate Change and Health – From Science to Practice

An Encore Presentation

Tuesday, July 21, 2015 at 1pm EDT

Climate Change and Health – From Science to Practice Changes 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.

Join us for this rebroadcast, which will feature introductory remarks by VADM Vivek Murthy, US Surgeon General and a Beyond the Data update from doctor George Luber, Chief of CDC's Climate and Health program.
