A Forecast for Equity: Climate Change and Health in California

Already the most populous state in the country, California's population continues to grow. As a result, our environment will increasingly impact the health of vulnerable populations. Join CPEHN for an engaging discussion on the intersection of public health, environmental justice, and climate change. Presentations from Linda Rudolph, Co-Director of Public Health Institute's Climate Change and Public Health Project, and local advocates will help us collectively develop strategies for addressing the challenges facing our state.
  • Connect the dots between climate change and health
  • Hear how local advocates on the front lines are tackling the challenges and creating sustainable communities
  • Share ideas and take action to create a more equitable California
