Climate change and health press conference

The theme of this year's National Public Health Week, April 7-13, is "Climate Change: Our Health in the Balance." The Cleveland Health Department has coordinated a series of events, kicking off with a press conference at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History on April 7. Speakers include:

  • Matt Carroll, Director of the Cleveland Department of Public Health
  • Karen Butler, Health Commissioner of the Cleveland Department of Public Health
  • Bruce Latimer, PhD, Executive Director of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History
There is a direct connection between climate change and the health of our nation today. Yet, few Americans are aware of the very real consequences of climate change on the health of our communities, our families, and our children.
