About the event
Physicians for Social Responsibility Pennsylvania (PSR PA) invites you to attend Climate Change and Health: Indicators and Pathways on Friday, April 15, from 12 - 4:30 PM Eastern.
The influences of weather and climate on human health are varied and increasingly alarming. Exposure to health hazards related to climate change has the capacity to affect all individuals physical and mental health and may do so by harming air, water, food and shelter on which they rely. The frequency, severity, duration, and location of weather and climate phenomena - like rising temperatures, heavy rains and droughts - are changing. This means that areas already experiencing health-threatening weather and climate phenomena are likely to experience worsening impacts. In this regard, socially and economically disadvantaged communities face the greatest risks.
