FCCA engages Florida health professionals to learn about the health harms of climate change and advocate for equitable solutions that protect public health and support a sustainable future.
Climate change is harming our health now. Some people are more vulnerable than others. If we do nothing, these health harms will only increase. Clinicians are trusted messengers and can play an important role in protecting public health.
Policies that reduce climate pollution also reduce:
Engage – health professionals in the climate-health discussion. Recruit health professionals to learn about climate, understand the risks, and advocate for solutions.
Educate – health professionals, their patients, and policymakers about the health risks of climate change and the health benefits of climate solutions.
Advocate – for policies that support a healthy sustainable future. Advocate for solutions that incorporate economic and social justice, and protect the health of communities of color and vulnerable populations.
