Going to Extremes – Lela Morris COEH Symposium May 9

An exciting symposium on the occupational and environmental health impacts of climate change in California organized by the COEH will be held on May 9 at the Elihu Harris State Building, 1515 Clay St, Oakland. In addition to learning about health impacts, attendees will also learn about strategies to mitigate climate change. Given the recent release of the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (see more below), this symposium is well-timed. Listen to an expert group of speakers on “hot” topics, highlighted by a keynote address from the Chairman of the California Air Resources Board, Mary Nichols.

The goal of this symposium is to increase awareness of health professionals, non-climate scientists, and staff of non-governmental organizations and public agencies about the near-term and long-term health consequences of climate change and what initiatives the state of California is taking to mitigate or adapt to climate change.
