The National Academy of Medicine is launching an action collaborative in support of decarbonizing the U.S. health care sector as a means for addressing climate change. The initiative acknowledges climate change as a public health and equity crisis, providing a platform on which organizations from across the health care sector can work in collaboration to address climate change and protect human health, well-being and equity. AHA is a collaborative member of the effort. Hospitals can participate in the initiative by becoming a network organization by April 18; learn more here.
