NOVEMBER 20 – Climate + Health 101

According to the CDC, “…public health can be affected by disruptions of physical, biological, and ecological systems, including disturbances originating in the US and elsewhere. The health effects of these disruptions include increased respiratory and cardiovascular disease, injuries and premature deaths related to extreme weather events, changes in the prevalence and geographical distribution of food- and water-borne illnesses and other infectious diseases, and threats to mental health.”

In this presentation and Q&A, family nurse practitioner Carol Lindsey, member of the Florida Clinicians for Climate Action and retired Active Duty Commissioned Officer in the United States Public Health Service, will present on the effects of climate change on our health.
