Protecting Your Health from Climate Change Impact

February 27, 2017

Impacts of climate change can influence one’s physical, mental, and/or socio-economic health and well-being. Such impacts include warming temperatures, changes in precipitation (flooding, drought), and increases in the frequency or intensity of extreme weather events (tornadic activity); they influence our health by affecting the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the disease-producing insects we encounter, the structural damage to which our homes and business may be subjected.

To this end, we are committed to expanding our knowledge on the public health effects of regional and local climate change, and sharing these learnings with our community. We do so as a participant in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s BRACE program, administered by our partners with the University of Illinois, Chicago, as the acronym represents, where we endeavor to Build Resilience Against Climate Effects (our community’s resilience). Let us share with you are evolving learnings. To learn more about BRACE, how climate change may be impacting you and your family, and ways in which you can best prepare for the health effects of climate change, please consider visiting our Climate Change webpage.
