Climate Health Now

Climate Health Now uses community organizing to build the base of climate-engaged health, allied health, and healthcare administrator professionals across California to leverage our trusted health voices in support of the climate justice movement in order to protect health and achieve health equity. Climate Health Now was founded in the Fall of 2019.
Doctors James and Kaufman will share the background of Climate Health Now (CHN) and describe the actions that CHN is taking to help doctors take meaningful action to address the negative effects of climate change.

Her research focused on the intersection between climate change and allergic-immunologic disease, and she has since expanded her work to advocacy through op-eds, webinars, and policy efforts.
