US Climate and Health Alliance provides toolkit for health professionals to act on #climatechange

The US Climate and Health Alliance has just launched their new State Policy Initiative. Please explore the online hub, which includes tools and information designed for and by health professionals to help bring the health voice to climate policy. Health professionals can use the tools and resources towards several important goals: to inform policy makers that climate change is a critical health issue; to raise the health voice in state discussions about climate change policy decisions and strengthen support for action at the state level; and to ultimately integrate health and health equity into state climate policies. Start exploring the tools.

Why Does the Health Voice Matter?

Health professionals are respected and credible individuals in their communities. Your voice can raise support for climate action by helping community members and policymakers better understand the health impacts of climate change and co-benefit opportunities of climate action. Until now, the health message—that climate change is our biggest health crisis and that we need to act now—has been largely untapped in the climate change conversation.
