Nurses are Here! A Global Planetary Health Movement

April 26, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

Few health professions have been impacted by the COVID-19 global
pandemic and disasters related to climate change more than nurses.
Nurses have worked tirelessly on the frontlines of health crises caused
by human disruptions of Earth’s natural systems. Perhaps that is why
nurses are some of the strongest leaders of planetary health solutions.
This presentation will showcase nurse-led planetary health solutions and
build networks to enhance application across the health care continuum.
