The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Climate Change and Health Equity Friday launched the Climate and Health Outlook, a public information series to inform health professionals and the public about potential climate-related health risks in the next 30 to 90 days and resources to take proactive action. The first edition uses temperature projections to highlight counties at higher risk from extreme heat and resources to help higher risk populations prevent heat-related health problems.
