The National Academy of Medicine, Institute for Healthcare Improvement, Health Care Without Harm, and Practice Greenhealth invited health care leaders, professionals of all disciplines, people working in education and health care, and anyone interested in climate and health care to attend a webinar, Activating Health Professionals to Lead Climate Action. 

This free event showcased stories of health care professional activation and leadership in climate action. Attendees heard from organizational leaders who worked to raise awareness and engage members of the health care workforce in efforts to lower greenhouse gas emissions, build resilience, and foster climate leadership and equity. Speakers also included health care professionals who successfully used their collective voice to advocate for their organizations to commit to climate goals and pledges. Attendees learned about educational resources on climate and health action to further their own learning and share with their colleagues.
