Who We Are:
Florida Clinicians for Climate Action (FCCA) is a coalition of health professionals and health organizations concerned about the impacts of climate change on Florida residents, especially those in vulnerable populations. FCCA was founded in response to what health professionals are already experiencing in patient care settings throughout Florida.
