Preparing for the Health Effects of Drought: California Climate Action Team Public Health Workgroup Meeting

Event Date & Time

Monday, February 4, 2019 - 10:00am to 4:00pm
Pacific Time
CalEPA Headquarters, Sacramento, CA

 

Please join California Department of Public Health, NIDIS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC) for a workshop on Preparing for the Health Effects of Drought: A Workshop for Public Health Professionals and Partners. This workshop is hosted by the California Department of Public Health as part of the California Climate Action Team Public Health Workgroup meeting series and will take place at the CalEPA headquarters in Sacramento, CA with webinar participation available.

The morning session will be an informational and educational session for public health professionals on the health impacts of drought, and drought projections, with a focus on California. The afternoon will be a facilitated session by NDMC to help participants better understand and use a new CDC National Center for Environmental Health resource guide called Preparing for the Health Effects of Drought: A Resource Guide for Public Health Professionals.

The entire workshop will be shared via webinar, but we encourage in person participation, when possible, to get the most out of the facilitated learning. The focus of this workshop will be on California and is the first of several planned state or regional workshops co-hosted by NIDIS, CDC, and NDMC on the new CDC Resource Guide.
