Students around the world are striking for climate action, they have asked adults to help, and Boston area health professionals are joining them! Climate change is a public health emergency. Help support young people’s right to a livable future, and their demand for transformative action.
Please wear your white coat or other medical attire, if you can, and carry signs reflecting the health and medical impact of climate change. We hope to offer strong visual evidence that health professionals stand with young people.
Everyone welcome, including physicians, nurses, medical and nursing students, dentists, mental health professionals, researchers, physical and occupational therapists… if you’re working to improve human health we’re thrilled to have you!
