Webinar on Public Health and Climate Change in NYS

I received the following announcement about a webinar on “the New York State Climate and Health Profile” from DEC this morning:
The New York State Climate and Health Profile
Webinar Wed., Mar. 31, 2016, 1:00 -1:30 PM
A “Climate and Health Profile” is a critically important first step for states and cities in projecting their climate and health disease burden. This webinar will describe the process  undertaken by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to develop its initial Climate and Health Profile.
The webinar will describe the changing NYS climate, climate-related health impacts, vulnerable populations, methods for assessing vulnerability, challenges and opportunities, existing NYS initiatives and collaborations, and implementation of the NYSDOH Climate and Health Strategic Map.
Following the webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Describe how the climate is changing in NYS.
  • Discuss the potential health impacts associated with climate change.
  • Identify steps in the process of assessing vulnerability and understand who the vulnerable populations are in NYS.
The speaker is Asante Shipp Hilts, MPH, Coordinator, Office of Public Health Practice at NYSDOH. The webinar is part of the Public Health and Climate Change webinar series from the Great Lakes Public Health Training Collaborative and the Region 2 Public Health Training Center.
