Overview

Keynote II - Climate Change Communication
During this session participants will learn the importance that communications play in climate change. Climate change and health are intertweined and communication methods play a critical role in the way information is conveyed to the public.

Plenary Panel IV - No Health without Planetary Health: Engaging Youth
This session will discuss climate change from a global perspective. This session will discuss the impacts the world has experienced from climate change. Participants will learn about the global health impacts of climate change. People-Planet-Health aims to collect, communicate and connect existing initiatives and projects in a “bottom-up”-process to give voice, visibility, support, network, and sustainability opportunities to local projects, initiatives, ideas, and groups that interconnect planetary health and health promotion. Thereby we are supporting small grass-root initiatives led by young people in the preparation of a position paper that will be part of stakeholder contributions to the development of a new WHO Global Health Promotion Strategy

Concurrent Session C1- Understanding the Impacts of Climate Change on Nutrient Density in Food: A Scoping Review Study

0.75 Entry

View Session
Overview

The United Nations predicts the world population will rise to a staggering 9.7 billion people by 2050 (2019). At the same time, as the climate begins to warm, global food production will be strained. To mitigate the impacts of climate change, much of the global agricultural community has focused efforts on increasing crop yield.The two methods of climate change examined in this research are elevated CO2 (eCO2) and elevated temperature (eT). Using a scoping review methodology, fifteen articles were found examining the impact of eCO2 or eT on thirteen different nutrients.In sum, this thesis aims to inform the conversation about future agricultural research by highlighting the impacts climate change is having on food quality, and subsequently, population health.

Concurrent Session D1 2:30 PM- 3:15 PM

Concurrent Session D1 - Teaching and Mentoring Advocacy: Comprehensive and Creative Ways to Build Students’ Skills

0.75 Entry

View Session
Overview

Health advocacy is a key professional skill for health educators and other public health professionals. The importance of health advocacy was confirmed by the latest Health Education Specialist Practice Assessment 2020 (HESPA II), when it became a standalone area of responsibility (Responsibility V).Clearly, health advocacy is an important skill in the training of future health educators and public health specialists, so why has previous research documented mild to significant discomfort among professionals regarding their abilities to successfully engage in advocacy activities? One reason may be that academic institutions are still trying to determine the best way to layer the development of this skill across courses and student levels. Additionally, faculty may need practice in more effectively mentoring students in health advocacy practice through “leading by example”. The presentation will begin with an introduction and self-assessment of current educational and mentoring practices related to health advocacy. Next, ideas will be shared for ways advocacy training can be incorporated into courses and events, both on and off campus. Building advocacy efforts into well established events and projects can make advocacy efficient and easily practiced as part of campus life. A number of assignments and teaching examples from one public health program will be shared, as well as best-practices in mentoring students and ways to build cross-campus relationships to enhance advocacy skill development.

Concurrent Session D2 - Community Engagement through Community Air Monitoring and the Implementation of an Environmental Justice Training Curriculum

0.75 Entry

View Session
Overview

It is a widely known fact that exposure to air pollution has deleterious impacts on health outcomes. Often times, communities of color and of low-income are at higher risk of exposure to the highest concentrations of air pollution. The Community Steering Committee (CSC) in San Bernardino/Muscoy (SBM) have combined these tools with community-based participatory research to empower communities of color and low-income communities to collect and interpret their own environmental health data to advocate for change in their communities.This training consisted of a primer on air quality, air pollution, and environmental justice, as well as applied practices in deciphering air monitor data reports and linking findings to policy recommendations.
