Climate and Health Literacy Consortium (CHLC)
The Climate and Health Literacy Consortium is a collaboration of the leading organizations around the U.S. working to educate the public about the health effects of climate change. Their goal is to promote education of health care professionals on the relationship of climate change and human health in order to aid in preparedness for managing these effects as they increasingly arise.
Their website contains a series of resources for public health practitioners to prepare for the impending threats to public health posed by climate change. The resources available include a list of consortium participants, articles on climate and health, and a presentation discussing how public health practitioners can aid in education, adaptation, and mitigation of negative health effects associated with climate change.
Consortium Participants include: Health Care Without Harm, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Nurses Association, American Medical Association, American Public Health Association, Environmental Protection Agency, George Washington School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), The Climate Project, University of Maryland School of Nursing, Health Sciences Online, Practice Greenhealth, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), and National Institutes of Health (NIH).
