Climate Change, Disruption, and Health Equity

As climate-related disasters, such as floods, droughts, and extreme temperatures become more common, humans are being exposed to unique combinations of health hazards and stressors, which are often inequitably distributed across the population. A panel of experts will discuss how climate change and climate disasters impact health outcomes for different populations and exacerbates health inequities, their impact on health systems, and how we can better prepare for and mitigate the health impacts of a changing climate.

Co-sponsored with the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy and part of Energy Week at Penn.

Supported by the Charles C. Leighton, MD Memorial Lecture Fund.
