Climate Smart Communities Webinar
Climate Change and Public Health - What Can Municipalities Do?
WHEN: Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Climate change has increased the frequency of extreme weather events. Extreme weather like heat waves and severe flooding have serious impacts on public health. Last year, the New York State Department of Health released the Climate and Health Profile report which discussed health impacts like heat-related illnesses and deaths, allergies, respiratory distress, and water-borne diseases, among others.
Attend this Climate Smart Communities (CSC) webinar on December 7th to hear speakers from the NYS Dept. of Health describe the prognosis for New York State and their research on heat vulnerability and cooling centers. Speakers will provide examples of what municipalities can do to help protect their communities from the health impacts of climate change.
Please provide us with your name and community affiliation, either via email or telephone to the Office of Climate Change at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-402-8448. In the event that we cancel or postpone this webinar, respondents will be notified.
