Climate Crisis as Public Health Crisis: A Regional Perspective

Tuesday, November 16, 2021
6 p.m. - 7:15 p.m. Pacific Time

The effects of climate change on health are many — directly, such as poor air quality from wildfire smoke, to indirectly, such as increasing rates of zoonotic infections, and food insecurity with variations in regional agriculture. The Inland Northwest will need to adapt to these inevitable changes, and this presentation will provide both existing challenges as well as possible solutions.

This event will feature speakers Bob Lutz, MD, MPH, a board-certified family medicine physician who holds adjunct faculty positions with the medical schools at the University of Washington and Washington State University, and Amber Lenhart, a national expert in health equity through policy change, who most recently served as the Spokane Regional Health District's policy specialist.
