Each of us can take steps to protect our health, every day.
As our climate changes, protecting our health becomes even more important.
People ask, what are the impacts of climate change on health? How do we protect our health in a changing climate? What can one person do about climate change?
ClimateRx was launched to provide peer-reviewed and vetted education, training, guidance and opportunities for action to help health professionals and their patients to care for their health and our climate.
ClimateRx is an initiative of the Climate for Health program by ecoAmerica, offered in collaboration with program partners.
What We Do
ClimateRx helps healthcare providers and health professionals to educate patients on the impacts of climate change on their health, ways to protect their health in a changing climate, and how to get more involved.
Specifically, ClimateRx provides tools, training, peer-reviewed information, and opportunities to take action.
