ANHE Education Forum Monthly Call – Building Environmental Health and Climate Change Across the Nursing Curriculum: Earth Day 2024 Topic Planet vs. Plastic

April 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

The ANHE Education Forum is back from taking a pause last year. We are thrilled to open 2024 with new co-chairs! Dr. Adrienne Wald and Joanna Fisher-Whilden will serve as the co-chairs for 2024 and Anna Chico Cornel will support until her term as co-chair starts in 2025.

Join the ANHE Education Forum on April 16th at 12 pm ET for “Building Environmental Health and Climate Change Across the Nursing Curriculum: Earth Day 2024 Topic Planet vs. Plastic.” Megan Wolff, Health Policy Director at Beyond Plastics will join us to talk about the topic in general and offer input and perspective. Our guest speaker will be followed by a Forum group discussion on best practices for integration of content across the nursing curriculum. Register here.

Megan J. Wolff, Ph.D., MPH, is a public health historian with an eye to using history to inform policy. After receiving her masters and doctorate in public health from Columbia University, she spent over a decade at Weill Cornell Medical College, where she developed a mental health policy initiative within the Department of Psychiatry. She believes that climate change is the greatest threat to health and well-being in contemporary life, and that overproduction of plastics touches on every phase of the climate fight.
