Climate Change, Health, and Justice: A Workshop on Community-Engaged Research to Promote Health Equity

The Fifth National Climate Assessment (2023), the U.S. government’s preeminent report on climate change impacts, risks, and responses, outlined three key conclusions related to climate change and health:

  1. Climate change is harming human health.
  2. Systemic racism and discrimination exacerbate climate impacts on human health.
  3. Timely, effective, and culturally appropriate adaptation and mitigation actions to protect human health are needed.

With this clear roadmap, it is critical to stimulate intervention research to help people and communities from U.S. populations experiencing health disparities adapt to climate change.

This workshop examines the state of the science to stimulate community-engaged, multi-level intervention research on this topic. The event convenes researchers, clinicians, and community partners for a series of presentations, panel discussions, and flash talks to:

  • Hear varied perspectives on innovations to decrease health disparities associated with climate change.
  • Identify mechanisms and processes required for successful multi-level interventions that strengthen resilience and adaptation to health effects from climate change.
  • Identify research gaps and opportunities to promote climate justice through community-engaged research.
  • Strategize future research directions.

The workshop will be a half day over two days and virtual.   Register here.
