Description

Why, as Catholics, do we care about climate change? Why, as health care providers, do we care about climate change? And if we care, what do we do about it? 

These questions will be addressed by national environment and climate change experts in a one-hour webinar, held as part of Catholic health care's observance of Earth Day 2018.

Objectives

The purpose of this webinar is to:

  • Understand how Catholic social teaching relates to climate change.
  • Understand the public health implications of climate change.
  • Identify operational and advocacy actions health care organizations can take in response to climate change.
