NACCHO Demonstration Site: Planning for the Health Impacts of Climate Change Presentation (WA)


Thurston County (WA) Public Health and Social Services (TCPHSS) created and delivered presentations about the public health impacts of climate change to help develop knowledge and capacity among health department staff and external partners. The presentations were given to over 180 policymakers, community leaders and planners including the Thurston County Board of Health, the Thurston County Emergency Management Council,  the Disaster Assistance Council of Thurston County, Olympia Climate Action, the Lacey City Council, the Region 3 Healthcare Coalition, the Thurston Regional Planning Council, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) climate change demonstration site meeting/workshop, the Washington State Department of Health – Environmental Health Group, and through a poster presentation at the NACCHO Annual Conference. TCPHSS has also been asked to present the presentations to the Olympic Region Clean Air Agency and the Washington State Association of Local Public Health Officials.

TCPHSS prepared generic versions of the presentations (PowerPoint and scripts) to be made available to other counties. PowerPoint and PDF versions of the presentation are available for download here.
