    ABOUT THE CLIMATE & HEALTH MEETING

    In an effort to provide a crucial platform for the diverse stakeholders in the public health and climate communities to come together around solutions, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, the American Public Health Association (APHA), The Climate Reality Project, Harvard Global Health Institute, the University of Washington Center for Health and the Global Environment, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Global Health Institute, and Dr. Howard Frumkin, former director of the CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health, hosted a Climate & Health Meeting on February 16, 2017 at The Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Supported by the Turner Foundation and other organizations, the one-day event filled the gap left by the recently-canceled Climate & Health Summit originally to be hosted and sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others.

    Given the expedited timeframe of the event, the meeting did not seek to replace the full three-day conference originally planned by the CDC. However, the event preserved the focus of the CDC conference and was a substantive working session for participants, providing a crucial platform for members of public health professions, the climate community, and officials tasked with responding to local health problems, to come together around solutions.
