‘Climate change is the greatest global health threat facing the world in the 21st century, but it is also the greatest opportunity to redefine the social and environmental determinants of health’ – Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change

Climate change is already having profound effects on the mental and physical health of rural and remote communities in Australia, and general practitioners are on the frontline. So how can we respond to this challenge and help our communities to transition to a cleaner, healthier and more resilient future? Join us to hear from rural doctors who are leading the way in Australia and globally and learn more about what you can do. Speakers include:

Associate Professor Lachlan McIver Tropical Diseases & Planetary Health Advisor, MSF Operational Centre Geneva
Associate Professor Lyn Fragar AO Public Health Physician, Rural Safety and Health Alliance Chair, & immediate past Chair of Hunter New England Health Service leading the way in sustainable healthcare in Australia
Dr Bob Vickers Rural Generalist & Clean Air advocate, as seen on the ABC's Fight for Plant A
