Californians, and in particular certain populations in the Los Angeles region, face a number of adverse health effects due to climate change. This presentation summarizes the latest research on climate-health pathways, focusing on the most significant climate impacts in the LA region, other environmental conditions, human behavior, and physical and mental health. The presenters propose a framework for assessing and addressing health vulnerability to climate change as part of a dynamic, complex system that includes urban forestry, water, and environmental justice considerations. The event will bring together practitioners and researchers in both urban forestry and public health, along with other local leaders. A group discussion could include ideas for new collaborations and integrated strategies for building climate resiliency.
