Study Published by CCH Faculty Featured in EPA Report on Pediatric Health Impacts of Climate Change

The signs of climate change are all around us, and children are uniquely vulnerable to its impacts. Climate change-related impacts in childhood can have lifelong consequences due to effects on learning, physical health, and housing security. A new national-scale, multi-sector EPA report showcases some of the ways children are especially vulnerable to a variety of health effects from climate change due to physical, cognitive, behavioral, and social factors. This new report features a study published by partnering faculty of the Center for Climate Health on the association between warm season and emergency department visits to children’s hospitals in the US.
