Climate Change, Health, and Populations of Concern

Posted by on January 23rd, 2017 Posted in: Children and Teens, Chronic Disease, Environmental Health, Public Health, Senior


From the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

“EPA has developed communication materials that summarize key points from the U.S. Climate and Health Assessment for eight different populations that are disproportionately affected by climate change impacts. The agency is providing these materials for use and modification for anyone seeking to communicate the health impacts of climate change to a range of audiences.”

The populations include:

  • Children
  • Older Adults
  • Indigenous Peoples
  • People with Disabilities
  • Pregnant Women
  • People with existing health conditions
  • Occupational Groups
  • Communities with Environmental Justice Concerns

For each population, there are downloadable files, including talking points, fact sheets and slides.
