Today At The Clinton Street Theater
How to Keep Hope and Good Health as Climate Change Worsens
DATE CHANGE! This event has been moved one day later than originally planned and is now on Wednesday, May 4.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the doom and gloom of climate science. Projections for Oregon show increasing risk of drought, wildfires, heat waves, storms, and floods, and predictions for worldwide consequences are even more scary. These impacts threaten our health and the systems that support us…but maybe there is a silver lining in this dark cloud looming? Climate change may be the greatest challenge we have known as a society, but it is also the greatest opportunity to achieve the kind of systemic change we need to improve the health of our communities and our environment. Come hear from Emily York, coordinator of the Oregon Climate and Health Program, about how the Oregon Health Authority is working with partners to integrate climate resilience strategies into our public health system.
This event is sponsored by Healthy Environments and Health Education & Promotion sections of the Oregon Public Health Association.
