Engaging the health voice on climate change has proven to be powerful in advancing equitable climate solutions. In order to bridge the gap between climate efforts and health professionals, MdPHA is teaming with the Energy Foundation.
We are intent on amplifying the health-voice on climate related issues by promoting awareness among health professionals on the interplay between climate and health, increasing coordination between and beyond health organizations, and empowering health professionals to engage in climate action.
