Virginia Clinicians for Climate Action
Clinician Advocates for Climate Solutions
Monthly Feature: VCCA Third Annual Advocacy Day January 23rd, 2020
VCCA clinicians will gather in Richmond from across the state for our Third Annual Advocacy Day on January 23rd. Members will engage in vital public health advocacy by meeting with their delegates and state senators to support bold clean energy solutions that protect the health and welfare of Virginians from climate change. We are delighted to announce that Dr. Daniel Carey, Virginia's Secretary of Health and Human Resources, will address our group following legislative meetings. In addition, we will honor the winner of the Second Annual VCCA Climate and Health Teaching Award, Dr. Jeremy Hoffman of the Science Museum of Virginia. This will be our third Advocacy Day following 2018 and 2019 General Assembly Sessions where the health benefits of increased access to solar energy and safe disposal of coal ash were discussed with elected representatives. Over 50 VCCA members are expected to attend in 2020 to discuss with their legislators why clean energy solutions and protection from heat illness are vital to protecting the health of all Virginians.
