Climate change is not just a health concern for polar bears. It will have serious impacts on the health of families and communities right here in Northeast Ohio.

As part of National Public Health Week, April 7-13, the Cleveland Health Department and many partner organizations have organized a series of events on the connections between climate change and health. The week will kick off on April 7 with a press conference at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.

Go here for a complete schedule of local events. Go here for the American Public Health Association's interesting website on climate change and the nation's health. And go here to take the Healthy Climate Pledge - pledging to be prepared for climate-related emergencies, travel differently, eat differently, green your work, and green your home.
