In this video, Dr. Bascom talks about population health, a concept that focuses on health outcomes, the patterns of health determinants--or factors--for a group of individuals, and policies and programs that link these two.
Most social determinants of health are also the same determinants that make some communities more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Climate change magnifies existing health and social inequities.
How should the Climate Action Plan address population health and health equity? Are there specific policies or opportunities? What organizations or individuals are working on health and climate change issues in our region?
