Next Hot Topics Webinar: Oregon's Climate Resilience Planning

April 4, 2016

In the April session of Hot Topics in Practice, Brendon Haggerty reviews Oregon’s state and local efforts to address the health impacts of climate change in the Northwest.

Recent high-level reports, international conventions, and attention from the world’s most prominent religious leaders have helped bring about a greater sense of urgency for addressing what some call the greatest public health threat of our time—climate change. But how does this growing global awareness translate to action at the local level?

In the April session of Hot Topics in Practice, Brendon Haggerty, Multnomah County Health Department, presents an overview of Oregon’s state and local efforts to address the health impacts of climate change. During this one-hour webinar, he will discuss the expected human and environmental impacts in the region, review existing tools for mitigation and adaptation, and provide resources for accessing data. The presentation will give special emphasis to identifying and working with vulnerable populations.

Register today to learn how communities in Oregon are planning for the health impacts of climate change.
