Extreme heat, poor air quality, and a lack of trees and shade are not just climate-change problems; these conditions significantly impact health and well-being. While climate change is affecting all Arizonans, it disproportionately impacts communities that are already facing inequities.
Join us for a robust discussion about how climate change is impacting health in Arizona. Our panelists -- sharing the perspectives of nonprofits, researchers, and local government -- will address how a changing climate will magnify health inequities, while highlighting research and community-driven solutions for improving individual and public health.
This event is co-sponsored by the Arizona Partnership for Healthy Communities and Vitalyst Health Foundation.
Breakfast will be served.
