Building Climate Resilient Community Health Clinics
We're excited to announce that Community Care Clinic of Dare and the Association have been selected to participate in a multi-year pilot project to address climate risks to operations and human health and improving patient care. Biogen is providing financial support for this initiative. Working with Americares and Harvard Chan C-CHANGE a Climate Resilient Clinics Toolkit for clinics will include:
- Clinician screening checklists for assessing patient vulnerability to climate change;
- Disease management plans for patients and providers to prepare for heatwaves and other extreme events; and
- Decision trees for clinic management during extreme weather.
Additional steps will include providing educational resources and scaling the project across the country and eventually internationally. Up to 150 clinics are expected to benefit from the project over the next three years.
