43rd Annual Meeting
January 27-29, 2023
Stowe, Vermont

Join the oldest PBRN in the US in a discussion on the role of health care workers in Climate & Political Determinants of Health

Why Climate Health?

Climate Effects like rising temperatures and extreme weather events are forecasted to be increasing in frequency for the New England region where it is known the populations of concern including minorities will bear the brunt of effects1. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has long acknowledged climate effects on human health as one of the top healthcare research topics of importance and has recently come out with regional recommendations for the Northeastern US with new guidance and funding pending a 2022 review1

Why Political Determinants of Health?

The US has politicized Climate Change Effects thus leading to a negative impact on healthcare. Politics have also impacted reproductive health with issues like the overturning of Roe v. Wade and state trigger laws that affect women’s reproductive health care access in dozens of states3. Similarly, political decisions have driven limitations of LGBTQI+ rights that have a direct effect on sexual health education and the mental health of LGBTQI+ individuals and allies2
