Climate Change and Your Health


As part of our mission to educate communities about healthcare, we must acknowledge the intersection between climate change, environmental justice, and health outcomes for all New Yorkers. Many of these changes are already beginning to affect us, especially our most vulnerable populations across the state.

We will continue to post more resources for learning more about climate change, and how can we respond. For some background on the links between our warming climate and public health, please see the resources below:
