Climate and Health

The Ohio Public Health Association has convened a group of stakeholders to begin developing a report and toolkit for local health departments to help prepare for climate-related health effects. The group is following the CDC BRACE framework which is a five-step process for health officials to develop community-based strategies and programs. The group includes representatives from local health departments, public health associations, universities, non-profits, students and retired public health professionals. Below are documents, or links to documents, pertaining to this group’s and related work.
