from the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation

For too long we’ve put health and the environment in different boxes. The work of our generation of healthcare providers and researchers is to bridge the two, to understand that optimizing planetary health, “the health of human civilization and the state of the natural systems on which it depends” must be our goal. One of our most urgent tasks is to plan and implement a healthy response to climate change–called the “greatest threat to global health in the 21st century” by the World Health Organization.

Progress has begun, work is accelerating, and the team is building: come learn specific targets for action and research that will channel our efforts into the healthy response to climate change that our patients and our children deserve.
