NorCal Symposium on Climate and Pandemic Resilience in Health Care - Steptember 25, 2020

A Continuing Medical Education Conference presented by the Sean N. Park Center for Allergy & Asthma Research at the Stanford University School of Medicine. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the vulnerabilities of health care systems in the US to adapt and mobilize resources needed to provide timely, appropriate, and equitable care. Climate change adds stressors such as wildfires, super storms, and heat waves that further test our capacity. It is critical that we build resilient health care systems, able to respond effectively in times of crisis. Through interdisciplinary sessions with health care workers, sustainability officers, and advocates for sustainable solutions, we will build a community of invested individuals and organizations to create resilient and equitable health care systems.
