The Medical Society Consortium on Climate and Health, is a group of eight medical societies representing 400 thousand doctors. The mission of the Consortium is to inform the public and policymakers about the harmful health effects of climate change on Americans, as well as about the immediate and long-term health benefits associated with decreasing greenhouse gas emissions (i.e., heat-trapping pollution) and other preventive and protective measures. We collaborate with other organizations and institutions to build awareness and protect vulnerable people and communities. The program office of the Consortium is based at the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication (Mason4C). Please visit there website for more information.
