Changing Climate, Changing Health: Strategies for Addressing Public Health in the Age of Climate Change

As part of the EBC/UMass Boston Climate Adaptation Forum, keynote speaker Gina McCarthy, former EPA Administrator and Director of Harvard C-CHANGE, will discuss how climate change is impacting public health. Following her presentation, a panel discussion will dive into both what is happening on the ground to address heat, asthma, mental health and how the built environment is supporting resilient wellness.

The public health field is rapidly shifting to incorporate the new realities of climate impacts. From extreme heat waves to the growing prevalence of diseases, issues with water quality, trauma from storms and allergy and asthma triggers, there are many challenges to address. While we are all vulnerable to this changes, low income communities and communities of color face disproportionate risks.
