Climate and Health Equity Webinar Series: Friday March 11, 2022 at 1500EST

Posted over 2 years ago by Camille Dyer

We would like to invite you, or any other representatives available, to attend our monthly Climate and Health Equity Webinar series. We want to express our gratitude for your engagement in the series and/or the Consortium thus far. 

The first webinar in our series this year is coming up Friday, March 11 at 3:00pm ET. The information is included below. We hope you will be able to join us!
Throughout US history, policy makers have put in place a series of laws and policies that have intentionally and unintentionally negatively affected Black, Indigenous, and other people of color. Dr. Sacoby Wilson will provide background on some of these policies–what they are and how they affect people of color–focusing particularly on impacts affecting children. He will also give examples of equitable climate policies that can help reverse the effects of racialized negative policies.
Dr. Wilson is an Associate Professor and Director, Center for Community Engagement, Environmental Justice, and Health (CEEJH) Maryland Institute for Applied Environmental Health at the School of Public Health-University of Maryland-College Park. He is an environmental health scientist with expertise in environmental justice and environmental health disparities.  Register here and please share widely!
