Please join The Lancet Countdown U.S. Policy Brief Authors and the American Public Health Association for the 2021 Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change U.S. Virtual Launch Event on Thursday, October 21st at 12 PM EDT to explore the 2021 global report and U.S. Brief. Hear about the latest trends in public health and climate change with leading experts in the field. These highly anticipated annual reports will be released the day before on October 20th at 6:30 PM EDT.

The annual global report tracks the impact of climate change on human health and is a product of more than 100 experts from 35 global institutions, and the companion U.S. Brief is supported by over 70 U.S. institutions, organizations, and centers. The 2021 U.S. Brief highlights the converging health crises of extreme heat, droughts, wildfires, and the unequal burdens of climate change. It also explores how expanding our understanding is essential for the United States' ability to respond with evidence-informed policy recommendations.

The launch event will include presentations and a Q&A with the Lancet Countdown authors, Renee N. Salas, MD, MPH, MS and Jeremy J. Hess, MD, MPH. It will also feature esteemed keynote speakers and dynamic panel discussions on timely climate change, health and equity topics.
