CC event cover wihtout text

Advocating for what is right sounds fantastic, but how can it be implemented in reality? It all starts with education. Global warming is becoming a greater concern with each passing day; from warmer ocean waters to melting glaciers, every day global warming poses a challenge to society. We, humans, have aggravated the effects of climate change. However, we also have the power to have a good impact on our planet, its flora and fauna, and the life that surrounds us humans.

Join us, as we embark on a journey with a panel of 7 diverse speakers to better understand climate change, it’s causes, and impacts, and identify meaningful actions for all of us.

Time: 12:00 am – 12:00 am

Climate-Change-and-Health

Natural calamities are commonplace in many too many countries and It is no secret that climate change is warming the air, raising sea levels and causing more severe storms and wildfires. Air pollution is the world’s single largest environmental health risk with around 7 million people dying every year from exposure to polluted air. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates that global warming will continue to climb unless we dramatically step up action.

Did you know it’s also affecting human health by increasing disease, causing food insecurity and disrupting medical care?

Dr. Joan Schiller is a medical oncologist and adjunct professor at University of Virginia. She is passionate about the impact of climate change on health. She recently published two articles on the subject in The Journal of Clinical Oncology – Oncology Practice and Lung Cancer News, a publication of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.

Join us as Dr. Schiller explores the topic and shares her wisdom.
