About This Event
This is a face-to-face session to be held in Maidstone
Topic:Extreme Weather, Disasters and Your Health
The impacts of climate change are already negatively impacting health, and are disproportionately affecting migrant, refugee and asylum seeker communities. In this session, we discuss a range of health impacts of climate change related to air pollution from bushfires; longer and more severe pollen seasons; severe storms, extreme rainfall and flooding; and infectious diseases. Participants will learn practical strategies to plan and prepare for emergencies which will strengthen their resilience against negative climate-related health impacts, improving health outcomes for themselves, their families and their communities. Other topics in this series look at heatwaves and health, sun safety, mosquito-borne diseases, and asthma impacts of climate change
