Dealing With Climate Change Anxiety 2/8

Saturday, February 8, 2020 - 10:30am to 12:00pm

Dr. David Pollack, emeritus professor for public policy at Oregon Health & Science University, is a retired psychiatrist who now devotes all of his professional time to working on the mental health and public health impacts of the climate crisis.  He will discuss the array of mental health issues associated with global warming, including not only the direct health effects of heat and air pollution but also the acute and persistent trauma and anxiety many people experience as they confront the reality and urgency of climate change’s threat to public health, economic sustainability and socio-cultural stability. Presented by AAUW.
