Presented by: Arianne Teherani, PhD, UCSF School of Medicine
Description: Climate change is the most significant “threat” to human health of this century. The role of education in preventing further climate and global environmental change is strategic and a necessity. Drawing on educational theories and the current evidence, this talk discusses methods by which to create cognizance of the problem and its importance, prepare learners and faculty to address the growing reality of societal health needs, and instigate change through education to prevent further impact on the planet.
