Issues at intersection of climate change and health impact global well-being
Date:11/18/2008

San Diego, November 18, 2008 The American Journal of Preventive Medicine special issue on climate change (November 2008), will be featured at the "Changing Climate Changing People" conference today in Los Angeles. Leading off the event is Guest Editor Howard Frumkin, MD, DrPH, speaking about the impacts of climate change on human health.

"Climate change is a key public health challenge. Health professionals need to understand the consequences of climate change for health, take appropriate steps to protect health and communicate the facts to the public and policy-makers," states Dr. Frumkin. "'Changing Climate...Changing People' will be an opportunity to summarize cutting edge science for media leaders, to help assure that television and film productions convey the most accurate information on climate change and health."

Extreme heat events (EHE), or heat waves, are the most prominent cause of weather-related human mortality in the United States, responsible for more deaths annually than hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes combined. These events, and other climate-related changes in the worldwide environment that directly affect public health, are examined in the November issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. The papers in this special issue provide a crucial state-of-the art overview of many of the issues at the intersection of climate change and health.

Guest Editors Howard Frumkin, MD, DrPH, and Jeremy J. Hess, MD, MPH, National Center for Environmental Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta; and Anthony J. McMichael, PhD, National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, Australian National University, Canberra and their colleagues issue a call to action. Dr. Frumkin observes that "a decade ago there was active debate about whether climate change was real, and whether human contributions have played a major causal role in the recently observed global w
