Building Extreme Heat Resilience Through Innovative Solutions

Category: Public Health Week

The summer of 2023 was the hottest year on record. This warming will increase if we don’t act now to phase out fossil fuels and invest in solutions that equitably reduce heat. Heat kills more people than hurricanes, floods and tornadoes combined and threatens the health of vulnerable populations, such as seniors, laborers and children. Most Americans underestimate the threat heat poses to their health.

APHA’s Center for Climate, Health and Equity is partnering with ecoAmerica for this webinar, which aims to explore the health impacts of extreme heat and innovative solutions that protect vulnerable populations. Heatwaves are predictable hazards. We need cost-effective technologies and strategies that lead to heat-resilient communities and health care systems. Join APHA and hear from experts who are implementing these innovative solutions at the local, regional and national level.
