Health Center Climate Change Brief
Community Health Center Climate Change Resilience and Mitigation Efforts
To assess how the consortia’s CHC members are currently working to address climate change, an all-member survey for NCCN and HANC was conducted, which 15 out of 15 member organizations completed. The survey was structured to assess current climate change mitigation (energy efficiency, waste management, water conservation), resilience, and leadership activities, and interest in adopting future climate change related collaborative activities.
The 3-pg analysis of the findings and the related infographic detail the efforts currently being conducted, opportunities on the horizon, and the dedication of community health centers to take a leadership role in viewing climate change as a public health emergency for their communities.
