Emergency Preparedness, Climate Change and Health Webinar (Feb 14, 9 am PST)
Emergency Preparedness, Climate Change and Health Webinar - (Public Health Agency of Canada)
At the dawn of the 21st century, climate change is considered one of the most serious threats facing humanity today. Although plagued by unknowns and uncertainties, Canadians can expect a more variable climate and as a direct result, most experts now agree that climate change will have far reaching effects on public health. Public health practitioners and emergency management officials have begun to develop plans and practices that are reflective of the possible climate health impacts.
This webinar will review current regional perspectives including flooding and forest fires to provide public health and health care providers and researchers with information and tools to optimise program planning.
