Climate change has profound implications for health and healthcare. But healthcare professional trainees often have little to no exposure to climate and sustainability topics during their training. This series will introduce students to the impact of climate change on health and health equity, what this means for healthcare, and how we can advocate and promote a more resilient and sustainable health system in a low carbon world. The speaker series consists of 6 sessions in total, each about 1 hour in length.
Organized in partnership by UofT Green Meds, CASCADES, the Canadian Association of Nurses for the Environment (CANE), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE), and the Canadian Federation of Medical Students (CFMS) Health and Environment Adaptive Response Task force (HEART).
