This 55-minute webinar discusses why it is important to engage the news media in the issue of the impacts of climate change on human health, connect health impacts to weather and climate, and cite the health benefits of climate solutions. It is part of the Climate and Health Program's AMPLIFY webinar series, which is designed to help state and local health departments more effectively communicate the health impacts of climate change in their communities.

COMMENT (NPW): HIFA is exploring the possibility of starting a new project on Planetary and Environmental Health, and one of the central issues to explore will be the role of the media in providing information (and misinformation) on climate change and health.
