Please join The Lancet Countdown U.S. Policy Brief Authors and the American Public Health Association for the 2022 Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change U.S. Virtual Launch Event on Wednesday, October 26th at 12 PM EDT to dive into the findings and policy recommendations from the 2022 global report and U.S. Brief. Join to hear about the latest trends in public health and climate change with leading experts in the field. These highly anticipated annual reports will be released the day before on October 25th at 6:30 PM EDT.
The annual global report tracks the impact of climate change on human health and is a product of experts from 38 global institutions, and the companion U.S. Brief is supported by over 80 U.S. institutions, organizations, and centers. The 2022 U.S. Brief explores the impacts of climate change on health through poor air quality, heat, infectious disease, and mental health, with a particular lens towards equity. The Brief also explores several evidence-informed policy recommendations that aim to promote public health and equity.
The launch event will include presentations and a Q&A by the Lancet Countdown co-lead authors, Naomi S. Beyeler, MPH, MCP and Natasha K. DeJarnett, PhD, MPH, BCES. It will also feature esteemed keynote speakers and dynamic panel discussions on timely climate change, health and equity topics.
