Climate, Crisis Preparedness, and Public Health

Featuring Diana Hamer, Director for Climate and Crisis Preparedness, National Network of Public Health Institutes in conversation with Ben Fulgencio-Turner, Director, Climate for Health.

Hurricanes, wildfires, flooding, heatwaves. As we enter Preparedness Month this September, we see disasters caused by climate change continue to intensify and accelerate. These crises are not just dangerous and expensive, they cause lasting harm to individual and public health. Public health leaders across the country are working to build greater resilience in communities and strengthening links between on-the-ground health workers, preparedness agencies and first responders. Join us to learn more about what you can do, as an individual and in community, to prepare for disasters and support your neighbors.
