Climate & Health Meeting is ON

When the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) suddenly cancelled a major conference on climate change and health last month, ostensibly for budgetary reasons, several universities and Al Gore’s The Climate Reality Project jumped in to fund and reconstitute the conference as a 1-day event to be held on Thursday February 16, 2017 at The Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

Speakers will include former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, the American Public Health Association (APHA), The Climate Reality Project, Harvard Global Health Institute, the University of Washington Center for Health and the Global Environment, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Global Health Institute, and Dr. Howard Frumkin, former director of the CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health. The day’s agenda and Livestream information is here.
