CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: The Salt Lake County Health Department is seeking passionate presenters interested in sharing their knowledge and work on climate change and public health related topics! Abstracts will be accepted through January 31st.
Staff in the MHealth Nurse-Practitioner Clinic were already accustomed to leading change: as a nurse-led partnership between the University of Minnesota School of Nursing, the MHealth system, and UMPhysicians, the clinic was launched as one of only a few nurse-led clinics in the metropolitan area. So the six-month old clinic was quick to engage another partner in launching an effort to address climate change as a health issue.

Salt Lake County will be hosting its third annual Climate Change and Health Symposium on April 5-6th of this year. The purpose of this event is to present to the public and to an academic audience the facts about climate change and its relationship to health. We hope to draw in a diverse audience from the community and inspire them to leave thinking about how they can contribute to climate change adaptation.
