In April, the US EPA’s Climate Change Division released a report projecting and quantifying how five climate change stressors may affect different aspects of children’s health in the contiguous US. EPA staff will provide an overview of some of the results from this study. Additionally, they look forward to discussing with the group how the agency can better interact with and inform clinicians, parents and caregivers, and children throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.
