NorCal Symposium on Climate and Pandemic Resilience in Health Care

September 25, 2020 | 9:00am - 5:00pm

We are excited to convene the first virtual NorCal Symposium on Climate and Pandemic Resilience in Health Care on September 25, 2020.  The symposium will educate and empower health care professionals to enact sustainable healthcare practices at their institution, with guidance from community-based organizations.  The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the vulnerabilities of health care systems in the US to adapt and mobilize resources needed to provide timely, appropriate, and equitable care.  Climate change adds stressors such as wildfires, super storms, and heat waves that further test our capacity.  It is critical that we build resilient health care systems, equipped to respond effectively in times of crisis.

Through interdisciplinary sessions with health care workers, sustainability officers, and advocates for sustainable solutions, we will build a community of invested individuals and organizations to create resilient and equitable health care systems.
