Apr. 13, 2015

ASTHO joins several public health organizations in endorsing H.R. 1275, the Climate Change Health Protection and Promotion Act. The bill, introduced by Representative Lois Capps (D-CA-24), directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services, acting through the CDC, to “develop a national strategic action plan to assist health professionals in preparing for and responding to the public health effects of climate change.” The bill would also increase current research on the health impacts of climate change.
