Multi-Chapter Chat: Climate Change & Children's Health

Please join us for our quarterly multi-chapter chat:

Wednesday, September 29 from 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

AAP CA declared a Climate Health Emergency in 2020 and recognized that “climate change threatens the physical and mental health of all children.” Please join us for our first statewide event on this topic. We will discuss the effects of climate change on children’s health and explore how we can respond to this challenge as pediatricians and health professionals.  

We will be joined by Aparna Bole, MD (left), Chair of the AAP Council on Environmental Health and Climate Change, who will provide an overview on this subject.

Following Dr. Bole’s presentation, we will be joined by panel members Amanda Millstein, MD, primary care pediatrician in Richmond, CA and co-founder of Climate Health Now, and Vi Nguyen, MD, Kaiser Permanente San Diego. They will share with us their experiences as pediatrician climate advocates. Moderated by Marnie Granados, MD, Children’s Hospital Orange County.
