Climate Change and Health
Our Health and Climate initiative aims to empower health professionals to get involved in climate and environmental health action in Maryland in meaningful, inclusive, and effective ways.
The Maryland Public Health Association is an affiliated association of the American Public Health Association (APHA). We have collaborated with APHA to grow stronger as organizations, to share expertise, influence, and resources, and to advocate for common priorities at the local, state and federal levels. APHA is the national voice of public health and champions the health of all people and all communities. It is the only organization that combines a 150-year perspective, a broad-based member community and the ability to influence federal policy to improve the public’s health. Learn more at apha.org.
