While 73% of Americans acknowledge that climate change is happening, only 25% recognize that climate change is affecting human health.10 By contrast 64% of physicians think climate change is directly relevant to patient care and 86% of healthcare professionals say that they have a responsibility to inform the public about the health effects of climate change.11,12 However, far fewer physicians say they currently engage their patients on the threat of climate change to their health. Therefore, despite the recognition of climate change as a pressing public health emergency, there exists a discrepancy in recognition and action that reflects the immediacy of the problem. Numerous barriers to physician advocacy and engagement with their patients on climate and health in the clinical arena have been identified including time constraints, lack of knowledge, and pluralistic ignorance. Our mission is to create a forum for the generation of novel and creative means of overcoming these barriers and seamlessly integrating climate science into clinical arena.
