ClimateRx is a seamless way to connect with patients and colleagues on how we can respond to the health risks of climate change.

Our ClimateRx commitment to you:

  1. Non-interruptive – healthcare settings are busy places. ClimateRx allows you to introduce more information without interrupting your workflow. We do not believe it is the job of the healthcare provider to deeply educate interested people on climate and health, but rather only to be a mechanism of introduction. 

  2. Non-partisan – we believe that the health impacts of climate change matter to everyone, regardless of political affiliation. ClimateRx will not engage in or promote partisan discourse or activities.

  3. Relatable – we want to meet people where they are. Our educational materials are designed to be tailored to the user. If you are a physician, we offer you ways that ClimateRx can help you to engage your patients on issues related to climate and health. If you are a patient, we offer tailored recommendations to care for your health. We also offer suggestions for how individuals can participate in climate change advocacy, particularly catering to those who are new to this type of activity.

  4. Optional – patients and health professionals decide on their own whether or not they want to engage with ClimateRx. The badge serves as the point of introduction. The decision to scan the QR code or engage with the health professional about ClimateRx is entirely patient (or other health professional) driven.
