Although heat waves, heavy precipitation and coastal flooding are not new, their increasing frequency and severity have resulted in direct and indirect health impacts that challenge the resources of state, local and community public health professionals. Recognizing and responding to the public health consequences of climate require thoughtful planning, solid evidence, effective engagement, and meaningful interventions.

This broadcast will focus on specific health risks from extreme weather events and changes in climate. It will highlight efforts to improve our understanding of the risks and the possible public health interventions. In addition, examples from New York State will showcase the role of public health partnerships to foster resiliency and adaptation.
