Clinical Climate Change Conference:
Protecting Patients and Improving Health Outcomes
 in the Climate Crisis

New York Academy of Medicine

January 24, 2020

Submission Deadline

November 22, 2019

 

 

 

Poster submissions will explore the intersection of climate change and health. This conference is aimed at a broad audience of allied health professionals and researchers seeking to understand the impacts of climate change on human health and improve patient outcomes. With the rise of heat-related illnesses, infectious, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, as well as concerns related to mental health and nutritional deficiencies and food insecurity, providers need substantive, evidence-based strategies to care effectively for patients.

 

Posters are invited for broadly defined climate related health impacts and can include examples as below however submissions in other related areas (economics, social) will be considered:

 

  • Temperature-Related Death and Illness

  • Mental health, social disruption

  • Extreme Weather Events and Health

  • Vector, Waterborne, or Food-Related Diseases

  • Nutrition and Food Insecurity

  • Health Impacts of Migration, Land Use or Changes in the Physical Environment

  • Air Quality and Cardiovascular and Respiratory Diseases

  • Occupational Health and Climate Change

  • Patient Communications

  • Environmental Health Data and Public Health

 

The poster session is a highlight of the conference. It provides an ideal opportunity for one-on-one personal exchange of ideas in an informal setting with a unique consortium of participants who are experts in a variety of clinical and research fields. A major goal of this symposium is to provide a networking opportunity for students, beginning researchers and clinicians. The poster session is a wonderful venue for informal, in-depth discussion, collaboration building, and mentoring.
