The Intersection of Climate, Environment & Maternal and Child Health & Well-being
Throughout the lifespan, health and well-being are influenced by many factors, including climate and the environment. There is a correlation between the physical environment where people live, work, and play and their quality of life. Local government has a role to play in building and strengthening communities where all children can grow and live healthy lives. In the webinar, we heard how local and state governments are working together to address and mitigate the current and future impacts of climate and the environment on vulnerable populations such as pregnant women, infants, and toddlers in their communities.
