Too Hot To Handle: Empowering Communities to Combat Extreme Heat

September 18 9:00 am - 11:30 am

September 18, 2021
9:00 – 11:30 am

Join the Science Project and the UCLA Center for Healthy Climate Solutions for Session 3 of our Social Justice in Science series as we explore how extreme heat events, worsened by climate change, reflect racial and economic bias by disproportionately affecting the health of BIPOC communities. Together, we will engage in dialogue and experience instructional approaches to humanize climate data and consider how science can inform policy and improve health outcomes.
