About The Event
The AMA passed two new resolutions: Climate Change as a Public Health Crisis and Voting as a Social Determinant of Health. Learn from the experts about how this expands our climate health advocacy. Explore the role of non-partisan healthcare civic engagement to solve the climate health crisis. Then take quick actions to empower your patients to vote for their health and a healthy environment, using easy tools from Vot-ER.
Guest speakers include Ashley McClure MD, cofounder of Climate Health Now, and Jasmin A. Eatman, M.D./Ph.D. Candidate, Emory University School of Medicine - two AMA members who were instrumental in passing the new resolutions, as well as Lisa Patel MD, MESc, Deputy Executive Director of the Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health.
Expect to leave energized, with new tools for advocacy on climate, health and equity.
