Summary: Extreme weather and climate events can lead to negative human health outcomes. Although the initial outcomes from these natural hazards are typically obvious, the long lasting impacts can be more difficult to identify because of the diversity of potential health burdens during the recovery phase. Mental health outcomes are one of the more complex relationships with natural hazards. The goal of this presentation is to build the link between human health and extreme weather and climate events. The discussion will be focused on rural populations.

Intended Audience: farmers, ranchers, health and safety professionals, ag producers, agribusiness, rural mental health professionals

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: 

  • Describe the impact of climate on human health outcomes
  • Identify populations at risk for climate disasters
  • Better understand mechanisms of climate disasters
  • Understand the secondary health impacts from climate disasters
  • Explore the role that these issues play on mental health
