The Climate and Health Education Summit brought together health education leaders and future leaders to develop strategies and actions to incorporate climate health impacts into both health education and health delivery systems. The Summit aimed to improve care of patients and address the fact that underserved individuals and communities are disproportionately impacted by climate change.

Over 80 health education leaders and trainees from the Northeast Ohio and Great Lakes Region with all levels of experience in climate and health education attended the Summit. Attendees were inspired and empowered to integrate climate health education into their health practices, patient interactions, and community systems to create healthier individuals, communities, and bioregions.

Workshops, digital posters, and panel discussions centered around the major themes of Education and Curriculum Development, Advocacy, and Community. Discussions included the latest science on the health impacts of climate change, development of strategies to integrate health impacts of climate change into the education of health professional students and into health delivery to improve patient care and address health disparities.
